And the winner is Beyoncé….!!


The mega pop star lived up to the Queen Moniker at Sunday night’s Video Music Awards, which aired live from Madison Square Garden. The iconic singer was up for a whopping 11 awards — the most she’s ever been nominated for and the highest number of nods any artist received at this year’s ceremony.

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of R&B Girl-group Destiny’s Child. This group became one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time. Their hiatus saw the release of Beyoncé’s debut album, “Dangerously in Love (2003)”, which established her as a solo artist worldwide, earned five Grammy Awards and featured the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles “Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy”.

Beyoncé rocks the VMAs with ‘Lemonade’ hits: She nabbed the highly coveted Video of the Year award for “Formation,” thanking her “beautiful daughter and incredible husband for all their support.” She dedicated the honor to the people of New Orleans, who are reeling from catastrophic damage following deadly flooding in Baton Rouge, LA. Earlier, in the night, the “Halo” hit maker also won Female Video of the Year for “Hold Up.”
