Beyoncé took a break from her Formation World Tour to hit the stage at the 2016 VMAs with a show-stopping performance highlighting some of the biggest tracks off her latest album, Lemonade.

It’s safe to say all eyes were on Queen Bey as she appeared on stage amidst tendrils of fog and kicked things off with the emotional ballad, “Pray You Catch Me.”

As Beyoncé sang, the lights hit the stage revealing a slew of dancers dressed in couture gowns who dropped to the ground one by one as the performance went on.

From there, Bey moved into an energetic performance of “Hold Up,” before transitioning into the equally energetic “Sorry,” after taking a bat to the camera and effectively smashing it in. Both tracks allowed the singer to show off some of her signature dance moves.

Up next, Bey quite literally set the stage on fire as she treated the crowd to an aggressive rendition of the track, “Don’t Hurt Yourself.”

Fittingly, Beyoncé saved the best for last, capping things off with a show-stopping performance of “Formation,” featuring over 20 backup dancers.

It’s safe to say Beyoncé completely killed it— in fact, we’re still trying to recover from the epic mini Bey concert we were just treated to! We have a feeling this is one VMA performance we’ll be talking about for years to come!
