Part of me feels like I'm getting too old to watch the VMAs. I had to Google a good portion of the artists/celebrities mentioned during the red carpet event prior to the show and found myself thinking more than once, "So this is what the kids like these days, huh?" But I persevered through the entire show... for Beyonce.

Last night, Beyonce was awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — aka the Lifetime Achievement Award — which is awarded to artists who have greatly impacted music culture. Last year, this award was supplemented by a 15-minute performance by its recipient, Justin Timberlake.

And this year, Beyonce won, and gave us a 16-minute, flawfree medley of the each song from her most recent album (sans "Heaven"). Here's the full performance, including some sweet moments featuring Jay Z and Blue Ivy, too. Enjoy!

5 Songs 'NSync Should Sing at Their Reunion Tonight


I love boy bands, this much is true. But even if I didn't, I'd probably still be a little intrigued by fact that 'NSync reuniting IS tonight, as evidenced by their newly created Twitter account.

So what will their performance tonight include?! Hopefully it's some kind of AMAZING song medley, like their 2000 performance that combined "This I Promise You," "Bye Bye Bye," and "It's Gonna Be Me." We need that. Except with all 'NSync songs, ever. Here are 5 songs they should totally sing at their reunion tonight.
