This year’s MTV Video Music Awards were definitely full of some surprise and some told-you-so wins. The legendary show was also chock-full of jaw-dropping performances, spectacular talent and incredible one liners from hosts, Key and Peele.

But, the most exciting part had to be watching more-than-deserving performers honored for their hard work and success.

Queen B (Beyoncé) definitely led the pack with wins, taking home seven (!!!) Moon Men, all thanks to her album Formation. She even passed up Madonna for most Moon Men of all time — impressive.

The 2016 MTV Music Video Awards show was definitely one for the record books.
