Start shuttling celebrities out of Madison Square Garden, because the MTV VMAs are done.

Once Beyoncé surprises everyone with a medley of hits from “Lemonade,” then it’s all over.

Beginning with “Pray You Catch Me,” our reigning queen took us through her visual album step by step, giving all those unable to donate half their paycheck to see her in concert a taste of “Lemonade.” (Pssst — it’s worth it.)

Next, she served “Hold Up,” complete with a camera smash from Hot Sauce.

After that, she performed “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” and “Sorry,” flanked by her body-paint-adorned backup dancers. 

And then, everyone stopped, dropped and got in formation, as Bey delivered a fierce rendition of the last track on the album. To top it all off, the performance closed with her back up dancers fittingly arranged on the floor in a Venus symbol. 

Hey, if you can impress Naomi Campbell, then what else do you have to prove?
