Published Aug 30, 2015Sunday night (August 30) brought celebrities, musicians, pop culture fanatics and grumpy Twitter users together once again for the MTV Video Music Awards.
Hosted by a goofy and often overbearing Miley Cyrus (who closed the show out with an abysmal performance featuring the Flaming Lips), the show was packed with highlights. Justin Bieber flew through the sky and burst into tears, Kanye West announced his plans to run for president and put the entire concept of award shows on blast, and Nicki Minaj called out Miley for hating on her in a recent New York Times interview.
Performers included Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, the Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and Justin Bieber. There was also way too much Macklemore, both off and onstage.
Since it's also technically an award show, there were a handful of awards handed out, with Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and others taking home moon man trophies for there recent videos.
Watch the performances both good and bad here.
