The MTV Video Music Awards took place in New York on Sunday August 25. In a night of big talking points Justin Timberlake came back together with his ‘N Sync bandmates for a short performance.
Miley Cyrus caused a stir when she performed with singer Robin Thicke wearing a latex bikini. The 20-year-old former Disney star immediately started trending on Twitter during the raunchy collaboration.
Lady Gaga, making her comeback with new single ‘Applause’, opened the show.
Kanye West played ‘Blood On The Leaves’ – the moody track from his most recent album ‘Yeezus’.
Justin Timberlake was the big winner on the night – he won video of the year for ‘Mirrors’. He also bagged the MTV lifetime achievement award.
Gotta be hot at an awards ceremony in those helmets, right? Daft Punk made a rare public appearance at the show. They presented an award with Chic legend Nile Rodgers.
Taylor Swift was caught on camera apparently disparaging her ex-boyfriend’s band One Direction during the show. As the British boyband spoke on stage, complimenting the local crowd by telling them “the best fans are in New York”, the camera cut to Swift, who was seen glancing at fellow pop singer Selena Gomez with an unimpressed look on her face before saying “shut the fuck up”.
