One of the most memorable highlights was from Beyonce, who received the Millennium Award. Before accepting her award, the singer took the stage performing ‘Run The World (Girls)’. Nothing short of phenomenal (at least in my opinion), fans shouldn’t have been disappointed as the singer definitely poured a lot into the performance with extra special effects. After the performance the ‘Crazy in Love’ singer couldn’t contain herself as she announced her love to hubby Jay-Z during her acceptance speech, uttering the words with a big school-girl grin “I love me some Jay-Z.”
Prior to her performance, Several of Beyonce’s close relatives, famous friends and collaborators, including First Lady Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, The-Dream, U2’s Bono, Babyface, Stevie Wonder, sister Solange, her nephew Daniel “Juelz” Smith, Barbra Streisand, Matthew Knowles and Tina Knowles, took part in the Billboard Millennium Award presentation with pre-recorded personal messages about the singer’s accomplishments.
