Not everyone can perform an entire album's worth of material during an award show, and not many would really even try... but we all know by now that Beyoncé is not any normal being. On Sunday (Aug. 24), the Queen Bey received the Video Vanguard Award at the 2014 MTV VMAs and ushered it all in by being ***Flawless and slaying all 14 tracks from her Dec. 2013 album Beyoncé.

Looking as stunning as ever in a bejeweled one-piece suit, Beyoncé kicked off the Beyoncé medley with "Mine," moving through five of her album's slower tempo tracks before getting a little more saucy with "Blow" and "Drunk In Love," when things really kicked into crazy gear.

From there, the performance got an extra kick of sass, with Beyoncê defining feminism before showing she isn't just equal to all men, she is above all other beings.

Though she's best known for her strong demeanor, Beyoncé was notably emotional, getting teary eyed during her ode to her daughter "Blue" and almost cracking when her husband Jay Z and Blue Ivy herself appeared on stage to give her the Video Vanguard award.

"I am so full right now," she said, keeping her speech short, expressing her love and thanks before closing out the show.
