    THE BEST PERFOMANCE OF THE NIGHT!!!!

  • shenanyginz

    @janelle:
    seriously the woman of class tonight. she had a smile on her face the whole night and when she gave taylor a chance to finish her speech she stole my heart. Not to mention she killed it on stage.

  • Porsche

    Her performance was great!! Amazing energy!

  • Sassy

    That video messed up

  • blah blah blah

    The song causes peoples I.Q. to drop. Taylor had the best perfomance – it was fun!

  • Kayne is stoo-pid

    High energy,greatperformance.

    And she gave the best performance in giving her time toTaylorSwift.

    CLASS A!!!!!

    I think Kayne is on drugs or is crazy.

  • lenscap

    I hate this song. Dumbest song for insect mentality people.

  • rpatzfan

    Go Beyonce! it was beautiful that you share your time with Taylor ,Congrats both of you

  • Lucas

    @shenanyginz: the moment with Taylor was pure class, but come on, there are several times when she has the mike totally down and her ‘voice’ is still singing. and a few parts where the camera shows that she didn’t bother moving her mouth at all. total lip sync. at least when Madonna used to ‘sing’ and dance she used a headset so the mike was by her mouth and you couldn’t totally see it was fake.

    and that opening did nada for the song for me.

  • kiiiii

    honestly, kanye is such an ass. i lost all my respect for him. he humiliated the poor girl, i wanted to kill him.
    beyonce was so sweet to let taylor finish. <333

  • sophie

    wow. i used to just like her, but after the vmas, shes so freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love her now!!!!

  • http://www.jjceleb.com Megan Fox JJC

    Well Kanye was such an ass. Now it’d appear wrong to support Beyonce. =P Go Taylor!

  • F_U

    I am so sick of this tired, played out ,stupid song and video. Damn, does she have any more songs out that she can sing? She has ran this crap into the ground good lord!

  • sir gaga

    hate the song, overrated & overplayed but she did a nice job & what she did with Taylor made me like her cause she didn’t have to but she did it, she has alot of class & i respect her

  • lex

    AMAZING performance.
    Classy Lady.

  • ….

    Even if you don’t like her music, you have to admit she did a decent thing by letting Taylor have her moment.

  • ace

    lovelovelove the performance. go b

  • Anita

  • didek31

    Video of the Year ? Come on ! I can tape video like this myself

  • me

    Her Perfomance was AMAZING!!! Talk about bringing down the house. She’s such a great performer. Pink and Green Day were also very good!!

  • umm

    There is s reason this song was video of the year. It lives up to the saying that less is more. Beyonce doesn’t need fancy props and computer and movie graphics to do a “song” performance. After all it is supposed to be about the music.
    Thousands of people copied and remade her video as they could see the difficulty and simplicity of the video and how catchy the song was. The steps were well choreographed and it was done in black and white. Which goes to show you….
    Beyonce doesn’t follow a trends, she does what she is comfortable with and works her talents to the best of her abilities.

  • milind

    I love her so much

  • Rayt

    Katy Perry was talking about Beyonce giving Taylor her moment back Jared, not her performance.

    @gigi:
    I agree with you.

  • tmiller

    It was nice of her to let Taylor Swift speak, but please don’t praise the stripper routine she performed last night. This woman is a disgrace to entertainment. Her performance was classless and slutty. CLOSE YOUR LEGS!!!!!
    Our children are inundated with this crap and enough is ENOUGH! You can dance, sing and entertain a crowd without your crotch being exposed…..Please people wake up!

  • miapocca
  • truth

    Beyonce just took an advantage from the whole stituation to make herself “looking nice” for fear of the blacklash of the taylor fans, she turned up the stituation in her side ,whene we all know that she is a manipulative diva.

    Other notes what the hell is happening to her? she is getting fuglier and fuglier , don’t get me started with the fatness…..her body is a miss geez with all the money she has.

  • ewww

    Oh gosh, such a trash!!!! freaky trailer trash out! damn, someone should seek a stylist for her.
