A Look @ Past MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) Memorable Moments

Posted on August 28, 2016

There are many award shows throughout the year, but the MTV Video Music Awards are truly a night that sticks in everyone’s minds. Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look back at MTV VMA’s passed for a little evidence supporting our case 🙂

Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic Drops His Bass Guitar…On Himself (1992)

Four minutes into their “Lithium” performance, Krist throws his bass into the air, and you think he’s going to catch it. Doesn’t quite go that smoothly. He then goes off stage, Kurt Cobain jumps into the drums, and Dave Grohl shouts out Axl Rose. Fast forward to 4:13 to check out this 90s memory!!

Britney Spears, Madonna & Christina Aguilera Make Out (2003)

It starts to Britney and Madonna, but the cameras almost miss Christina Aguilera’s involvement. Why’s that? Cause the cameras cut to Justin Timberlake’s reaction!!!! You bet this made every headline the next morning.

Kanye West Interrupts Taylor Swift’s “Best Female Video” Speech (2009)

Do we have to explain this one? It’s still being talked about. Ever heard the term, Imma let you finish? Here’s where it came from:

Beyonce Reveals Her Baby Bump (2011)

The pregnancy rumour was out there, and Beyonce didn’t waste any time letting people gossip! She pulled this one out of the bag after her performance of “Love on Top” and the camera’s worked their magic to get the perfect reaction of Jay-Z AND Kanye!! If you were watching and not smiling, you were simply doing it wrong! Fast forward to 4:27 for the magic:

Miley Cyrus & Robin Thicke Get…Friendly On Stage (2013)

We can’t skip this controversial moment out. Miley took the stage with Robin Thicke at the 2013 VMAs in a nude coloured outfit, and risqué dance moves. This one was definitely memorable!

As we prepare for the 2016 show, we can’t help but wonder what everyone will be talking come Monday morning. Join us on Twitter tonight at 9pm EST as we live tweet the show using #UMUSICVMAs 🙂
