While yesterday may have been Beyoncé's birthday, the queen herself opted to provide fans with a gift today in the form of a Flashback Friday video featuring BTS footage from her recent performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. 

You know, the 15 minute jaw-dropping show that Bey put on last month, cementing her status as one of the top female performers in the world? Yeah, that one

And in case you couldn't get enough of her scene-stealing moves and powerhouse vocals, the 33-year-old songstress has released a video via her Facebook page in which fans can view all the various components that went into the making of the memorable performance.

But even though this is Beyoncé, that doesn't mean every rehearsal leading up to the show went down without a hitch. Case in point? Queen Bey was only able to have one run-through before she performed live on stage. 

"It's unbelievable," she says in the clip. "I'm trying to really compose myself. I can't believe that we only did it one time." 

Yet, always the consummate professional, the hitmaker knows how to keep her cool, leading her team in a prayer circle and thanking God for the opportunity while "asking to exchange energy and be one" before Team B shouts out a resounding "Amen."

Despite the hardships (including a last minute makeup mishap), the performance, as we all witnessed, was flawlessly executed even though little Blue Ivy stole the show

And once again, the 2-year-old tot is stealing her famous mama's spotlight, proudly telling her parent "everybody said good job!" while being held in dad Jay-Z's arms as they walk backstage with Bey. 

Safe to say we echo Blue's sentiments. Congrats on a spectacular performance, Beyoncé!
