Queen Bey still knows how to steal a show.
In the middle of Beyonce's Video Vanguard performance -- a medley of her groundbreaking visual album -- cameras cut to hubby Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy looking on from the audience. The moment marked Blue's television debut, though the duo has previously shown photos of their daughter's face during their On the Run tour. (The same footage was shown during Bey's performance of "Blue" on Sunday night.)

Talk about coming full circle! It's only fitting that the tot makes her television debut on the same show where her mom announced her pregnancy back in 2011.
And it definitely looks like Blue inherited her mom's performing genes: the 2-year-old was spotted dancing along to the music from Jay's lap.
Moments later, she took the stage to present her mother with a Moonman trophy. As Blue clapped her hands and said "Hi Mommy," Jay Z took the mic to declare his wife the "greatest living entertainer." The moment moved Bey to tears.

Beyonce and Jay Z have been plagued with rumors of an impending divorce for months now, with Beyonce battling back via frequent Instagram updates of personal family photos. Ahead of Beyonce's VMAs performance, speculation had swirled that she would use the platform to put any rumors of a split to rest. Mission: accomplished.
