    Beyonce's Greatest Performances

    Considering every performance of The Queen is great, this was pretty hard to do.

    That sparkling outfit and the HAIR.

    That entrance through the crowd just sets the tone for the performance.

    Sentimental Bey. Those watery eyes at 3:30 make you FEEL the message B is sanging!

    I know you want to be 'Dangerously in Love' after watching this video.

    The Queen gets SERIOUS during music's biggest night.

    Bey is angry over something, but I wouldn't question it - just enjoy.

    Also, the guy at 4:35 - That is all.

    I mean, aside from how anticipating this intro to the incredible concert is, B had a baby four months prior to this performance. FOUR.

    11. 2011 - VMA's

    Her voice is just so powerful! All while commanding the VMA stage like Bey is used to.

    4:20 - Greatest ending to a Beyoncé performance, EVER.

    10. 2009 - I Am... Yours

    Beyoncé is just truly versatile when it comes to being a performer. You feel the pain and message behind this song.

    3:35 - I would hate to be that gal she's talking about!

    9. 2004 - SuperBowl

    Not only did the Queen dominate the SuperBowl stage in 2013, but nine years prior as well singing the Star Spangled Banner.

    2:28 - she brave!

    8. 2009 - VMAs

    After a wild moment of Kanye running on stage claiming his most infamous line of "Beyoncé [having] one of the best videos of all time", she reminded people of her greatness with this performance.

    7. 2011 - Glastonbury Festival

    Ooooh Glastonbury! Now the entire hour and a half of this concert truly is one of her best, however this Destiny's Child Medley is defiantly a highlight.

    6. 2014 - VMAs

    Bey brought your faith back into the anticipations we all once had for the performances at the MTV VMAs long ago, purely with this mini concert right here. Instead of the entire 14 minute performance, here's one of the many phenomenal parts.

    5. 2011 - Glastonbury

    Here she is producing yet another highlight of the same night with her song:

    Why Don't You Love Me

    The power she holds within her voice and just herself throughout this is great.

    Also, 4:00!

    4. 2006 - VMAs

    One of her best VMA performances in my opinion.

    Her choreography and her voice.

    2:40 - 3:40, she really knows how to just put the crowd in AWE.

    3. 2009 - I Am... World Tour

    Disregard the first 10 seconds of this video.

    THAT DROP at :37 seconds. Her outfit. Her vocals throughout the bit of 'Deja Vu' that she sings. Her choreography. And an appearance by Mr. Carter himself. Defiantly one of my favorites by the Queen

    After 5:00, Bey ain't taking this as a joke.

    2. 2013 - SuperBowl

    When I say I get chills every time I watch the intro to this, I am not lying and I promise you that.

    The body of Beyoncé outlined in FIRE. Her staring directly into the crowd and saying - "SuperBowl - 1, 2, 3, 4!... Let's get it."

    The moments after 6:55.

    DESTINY'S CHILD FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

    In arguably one of her best performances.

    1. 2011 - Billboard Awards

    Some may question how this performance is ahead of the Superbowl, watching it will answer this question.

    The power throughout this performance as a whole is just RAW.

    Bey was conveying a message through the song and it WORKED.

    The intro included some of the most influential people/musicians.

    The effects that are working along with Bey's choreography during the performance is just mesmerizing.

    Vocals and presence after 6:55 - How can you not appreciate her?

    No one does it like The Queen
