Bey crushed it, plain and simple. The show's centerpiece 15-minute performance featured her picking up a bat and smashing one of the MTV cameras. The network didn't seem to mind as she rocked Madison Square Garden with classic songs from her album, "Lemonade." The fans in attendance were floored.

Later, the U.S. Gymnastics team met the Queen and were in heaven.

"When it comes to fashion and style, she makes it look effortless," he added. "What's most impressive is the person."

"This is such an amazing night, such an amazing moment in my career," she said, accepting the award.
