Last week, VH1 recapped the Summer 2013 but the music team wanted to take one more look back at what happened over the past few months.

That goes without saying! But despite the epic coronation video that opened the extravaganza, and the fact that she essentially owned the place (along with Jay Z, obvs), the diva managed to keep things chill. She was the perfect host, putting her 18,000 guests at ease as she welcomed us to her family arena.
