Over the years, Beyonce has had epic awards show performances, but one of our all-time favorites is the 2011 Billboard Music Awards.
She brought down the house with her new song (at the time), “Run The World (Girls),” with dazzling visual displays, lights, and choreography.
After the performance, she was honored with the Millenium Award, where her mom, Tina, and nephew, Juelz, presented the award.
In Beyonce’s acceptance speech, she thanked her mom, dad, Destiny’s Child groupmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, as well as original DC members, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. She didn’t forget her husband, giving him a shoutout, saying simply, “I love me some Jay-Z.”
