The queen of pop kicked off the awards ceremony with an epic medley of some of her most popular tunes, including “Toxic,” “Slave For You,” and of course “Womanizer.” She totally slayed it in one of her first live TV awards show solo performances since her disastrous 2007 MTV Awards show appearance when she was at one of her lowest points in life. But how things have changed so much since then, as she rallied with a giant comeback to rack up so many more hits and launched a wildly successful Las Vegas residency that has been thrilling her fans since 2013.
