The award for Video of the Year was given to Beyonce at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).

Beyonce won the Moonman for Video of the Year for his/her "Formation" music video. She beat out [Adele's "Hello", Justin Bieber's "Sorry", Drake's "Hotline Bling" and Kanye West's "Famous" for this top award of the evening.

While accepting the award for Video of the Year, Beyonce, thanked her husband, Jay Z and her daughter Blue Ivy first and foremost, and dedicated the award to the people of New Orleans.

This is Beyonce's second win for Video of the Year, having previously won for "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" in 2009. She is now one of only three artists who have won Video of the Year twice, the others being Eminem and Rihanna.

"The potency of 'Formation' doesn't come from its overt politics: it comes from the juxtaposition of lyric with the images, which organically present black humanity in ways we've haven't seen frequently represented in popular art or culture," The Guardian wrote, of the video.
