It was truly Beyonce's night at the MTV Video Music Awards in L.A. yesterday. After walking the red carpet in a black gown, she showed the music stars how it's done, taking to the stage to perform a 15-minute medley. The performance covered the entirety of her recent self-titled album and saw her working some seriously sultry moves. Watch it in full below...

As if that wasn't enough, the performance was followed up by her husband Jay Z and the adorable Blue Ivy taking to the stage to present the 32-year-old singer with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. She teared up before sharing a kiss with her hubby and daughter (who'd watched the whole performance from a VIP spot). As her family presented her with the Video Vanguard prize, the two-year-old tot showed her approval, shouting, "Yay, mommy!"

Beyonce also collected gongs for Best Video with a Social Message and Best Cinematography for 'Pretty Hurts', while she and Jay Z picked up the Best Collaboration prize for 'Drunk in Love'.
