Beyoncé Wins MTV VMAs 2016 Video of the Year for 'Formation'

Congratulations to Beyoncé, who snagged the most coveted win at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. The pop star took home the Video of the Year Moonman for her "Formation" visual, beating out major contenders AdeleKanye WestDrake and Justin Bieber.

The singer, whose controversial and political video was shot in New Orleans, dedicated the award to the city. The clip was surprise-released ahead of this year's Super Bowl back in February, and features voices from Fuse star Big Freedia and the late Messy Mya, as well as striking imagery of the southern city, a message to police brutality and a drowning police car.

Beyoncé also won Video of the Year in 2009 for "Single Ladies" (the same year Kanye infamously interrupted Taylor Swift for winning Best Female Video over Queen Bey). Previous winners of category include: Lady Gaga for "Bad Romance" in 2010, Rihanna for "We Found Love" in 2012 and Taylor's "Bad Blood" at last year's show.
