The MTV Video Music Awards took the celebration of music to a whole new level on Aug. 25, as the best in the business took the stage for some incredible performances and even some hilarious moments.
MTV VMA Shocking Moments — The Night’s Biggest Shockers
Lady Gaga was the perfect artist to open the awards show, as she literally changed on stage — multiple times — danced her ass off and received a roaring applause. (Sorry, we had to.)
Not long after Gaga’s super sexy performance, Miley Cyrus stripped down to almost nothing and gave a rather raunchy performance of “We Can’t Stop.” And if that wasn’t good enough, she then joined Robin Thicke for “Blurred Lines,” where she fondled his man parts with a foam finger. (Let’s hope Liam Hemsworth didn’t see that!)
However, the best performance of the night belonged to Justin Timberlake, who helped reunite ‘NSYNC after more than a decade of being apart. The President of Pop even won Video Of The Year for “Mirrors”!
Of course, no VMAs would be complete without Kevin Hart throwing a few digs at the stars of the night. This year, he dissed ‘NSYNC by calling them old, sluggish and out of breath, following their performances of “Girlfriend” and “Bye Bye Bye.” (We beg to differ! In fact, we wish their performance was longer.)
Another person who chose to throw jabs during the awards show was Taylor Swift, who dissed Harry Styles during her acceptance speech. Thankfully, Kanye West didn’t storm the stage this time around.
Katy Perry closed the show with an unforgettable performance of “Roar” under the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a rather poetic way of closing the show, which was held in Brooklyn for the first time ever!
