Blue Ivy Dances As Beyonce Performs, Steals The Show At The MTV VMAs
Blue Ivy Carter stole the show at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday when she appeared with her father, Jay Z, to present mom Beyoncé with the Vanguard Award.
Blue Ivy Dances To "***Flawless"
Beyoncé may have been the big winner at Sunday night’s awards show, but it is her daughter, Blue Ivy, who has been crowned the most important person to attend the VMAs.
OMG BLUE IVY JUST PERSONALLY WAVED AT ME. MY LIFE IS OVER.

Beyoncé won the biggest moon man of the night at the MTV VMAs, taking home the Video Vanguard Award for her massive Beyoncé album and video compilation. Beyoncé closed the show, performing a 15-minute medley of her album before accepting the gold moon man from her husband and daughter.
Throughout her mother’s show-stopping performance, Blue Ivy was seen dancing on her father’s lap. The two-year-old has been kept out of the press, for the most part, save for a few candid photos snapped by very lucky paparazzi. Beyoncé and Jay Z are pros at keeping their daughter’s face out of family snapshots shared with fans on social media, making Blue Ivy’s appearance at the VMAs extra special.
Blue Ivy, Jay Z Present Award To Beyoncé
During her tour de force performance, Beyoncé got a bit misty eyes when she began singing “Blue” for her daughter, and when Jay Z came onstage carrying Blue Ivy, Beyoncé gave her daughter a sweet kiss on the cheek.
Before presenting his wife with the Vanguard Award, and calling her the “greatest entertainer,” Jay Z let Blue Ivy give her mom a message into the mic: “Yeah, Mommy!”
Blue Ivy waved to the crowd as her mother accepted the award, thanking her fans for their support and declaring her love for her husband and child, saying, “Blue, I love you. My beloved, I love you.”
Beyoncé And Jay Z Squash Divorce Rumors
Receiving her award, Beyoncé also shared a sweet kiss with Jay Z, seemingly shutting down rumors that the two super stars are heading for a divorce. No doubt Beyoncé also had those rumors in mind when she kicked off her performance with “Mine.”
“I’ve been watching for the sings / Took a trip to clear min mind / Now I’m even more lost / And you’re still so fine, oh my, oh my / Been having conversations about breakups and separations / I’m not feeling like myself since the baby / Are we gonna even make it?” Beyoncé sang.
Beyoncé also sang a short version of her “***Flawless Remix,” keeping the newly added verse in which the singer mentions the elevator fight between her husband and sister, Solange Knowles.
In addition to delivering a stunning performance and taking home the highest VMA honor, Beyoncé also took home the award for Best Collaboration with her husband for “Drunk In Love” and Best Video With A Social Message and Best Cinematography for “Pretty Hurts.”
