To say Beyoncé's road to this year's Grammys has been epic would be an understatement...it's been, well, flawless.

It seemed like as the superstar singer reached one milestone, she topped that with another, selling out her world tour, releasing a secret, platinum-selling album and performing at Michele Obama's 50th birthday celebration.

And that was just in the last 11 months.

Next, Beyoncé hit the stage at Sunday's Grammys alongside her hubby Jay Z, writhing around the stage in a barely-there leotard during their rockstar performance of "Drunk in Love."

Just a week after rocking the Super Bowl via a Destiny's Child reunion with Kelly Rowland and Michele Williams, Beyoncé announced her "Mrs. Carter Show" World Tour last February, which sold out in the U.S. from coast to coast in minutes flat. When she added more shows in June, extending her concert run until December, the high-energy show sold out once again.

Before her tour kicked off last April in Belgrade, Serbia, Beyoncé continued to make power moves, releasing "Bow Down/I Been On" in tk, in which she essentially let everyone know why she's the queen of pop/R&B. And she also released "Grown Woman" that summer.

Then, she shined as the new face of H&M's summer collection, suiting up in bikinis and the brand's cute cover-ups for her fashionista fans on a budget.

Speaking of fashion, the pop star was named the honorary chair of the Met Costume Gala, where celebs from the likes of  Kanye West to Sarah Jessica Parker, hit the carpet in renowned fashion designers' high-fashion looks.

Beyoncé went on to cover Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" for The Great Gatsby and then covered British Vogue May 2013 issue, where she referred to herself as a "modern-day feminist."

"Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are?," she told the mag. "Why do you have to label yourself anything? I'm just a woman, and I love being a woman."

In the midst of all that, the superstar performer made plenty of time for her family, taking a trip to Cuba with Jay Z to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary, and renting out Jungle Island in Miami for their daughter Blue Ivy's second birthday, among other family excursions.

Aside from headlining Jay Z's "Made in America" event last summer, Beyoncé also spent time with her hubby in the studio, collaborating on their hit song, "Part II (On the Run)" on his Magna Carta album, and then "Drunk in Love" on her secret self-titled album, which caught everyone by surprise when she released it in December (no wonder Billboard dubbed the duo the most powerful couple in music).

The visual album was not only packed with hot tracks, but 17(!) music videos to go along with it.

Then, Beyoncé kicked off the year with a bang, performing at Michele Obama's 50th birthday party, at which she showed off her killer bod in a sparkly, gold mini dress.

Talk about an awesome ride to this year's awards show!
