Beyonce Knowles stole the show at last night's (31AUG06) MTV Video Music Awards with a jaw-dropping performance of her new record. The superstar showed off her sexy new image as she performed new girl power anthem RING THE ALARM. IniTIally wearing a full-length trenchcoat, like her angry character in the Ring The Alarm video, Beyonce performed a stunning dance routine with 10 lookalikes before revealing a basque outfit underneath. The R+B queen won a standing ovation as she finished the performance in the fetching patent leather outfit on a hydraulic stage high above the audience. Her performance was one of many showstoppers at the 2006 VMAs - the Pussycat Dolls joined Ludacris and Pharrell Williams, Christina Aguilera thrilled with new single Hurt, and Justin Timberlake and Timbaland performed US number one SEXYBACK to open this year's show. Other performers included rapper TI, Shakira and Wyclef Jean, Ok Go, The Killers and ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS.
