Most Outrageous Moments of MTV VMAs Past

Can't even imagine what will go down tonight!

The MTV VMAs are probably the craziest of the awards shows throughout the year. You just never know what’s going to go down. All I know is the crazy will definitely be coming out tonight! Until then, let’s reminisce on the most outrageous VMAs moments in the past.

Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” performance at the first VMAs in 1984 basically set the precedent for outrageous performances to come.

Who could forget possibly the most infamous VMAs moment ever when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video for “You Belong With Me” in 2009 – “Taylor, Imma let you finish but Beyonce has one of the best videos of all time.”

And who could forget the awkward Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus collaboration of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines.” 2013 was unfortunately the year of twerking thanks to this performance from Miley.


Moments to watch for tonight:

-Britney Spears will perform

-Rihanna will receive the Video Vanguard Award

-Kanye West is being given stage time to do whatever he wants for a few minutes

-Rumours that Beyonce will perform

This year’s MTV VMAs are on tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York City at 9 p. m. ET/PT. The pre-show starts at 8 p. m.
