Rapper Jay Z stepped onstage with two-year-old Blue to say: "The recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard award and the greatest living entertainer Beyoncé."
It was no doubt the joy of seeing her favourite duo that made the singer overcome with emotion. The star hugged and kissed her rapper husband and tiny tot after Jay Z handed over the prestigious paperweight.
The overwhelmed Halo star said: "I'm so full. Thank you. I have nothing to say but I'm filled with so much gratitude. I thank god for this moment. I love you so much. "Baby Blue, my beloved I love you."
The couple's adorable daughter is then heard saying into the microphone: "Go Mommy".
Beyoncé stole the show in a colourful mosaic leotard as she performed new hits such as No Angel and Haunted, as well as popular tracks such as Drunk in Love and Partition.
