Leave it to Beyoncé to take over an awards show she's not even attending!

After dominating the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night,  Bey made a surprise appearance during the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday the form of Amy Poehler!

That's right, the Parks and Recreation star channeled her inner-Sasha Fierce when she was called on-stage to present the first award of the night by host Seth Meyers.

"Our first presenter asked to write her own introduction, so please welcome my beautiful and amazing and talented friend, Beyoncé," Meyers said, just before Poehler strutted her way on stage and gave her former Weekend Update co-anchor a high five.

"I am honored to announce the first award of the evening: best onscreen orgasm in a Civil War reenactment," Poehler joked, before announcing the nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. The winner? Modern Family's Ty Burrell!

It was Burrell's fifth nomination and second win for his work as Phil Dunphy on the hit ABC sitcom, with the actor beating out his co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, as well as Girls' Adam Driver, Portlandia's Fred Armisen, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andre Braugher and Veep's Tony Hale

Of course, Burrell had a hilarious speech prepared. Or should we say his Modern Family kids, including Sarah Hyland and Nolan Gould, "prepared" his remarks, having him thank his real-life children by saying, "They're cute, but they're just not 'I can support my whole family' cute."
