Eminem and Rihanna, Drake, Swizz Beatz and Mary J Blige, Usher, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, B.O.B. and Kanye West all performed at last night’s 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, but who owned it?
Keep reading for a quick recap of each performance, don’t forget to vote at the end!
Rihanna told MTV she wouldn’t be able to attend the VMA’s because she was taping “Battleship” in Hawaii. Did her surprise appearance take Em’s opening performance up a notch?
Drizzy recruited Mary J. Blige and Swizz Beatz for his set. They executed a “Fancy” stage show but was he upstaged by his spastic right hand dance???
After teenybopping his way to the top of the food chain, Bieber’s VMA performance unleashed “Bieber Fever” in the audience. The kid is nice with the drum kit too!
Usher performed a dance heavy set complete with gyrotronic light show, sacrificing some of his live vocals in the process.
Taylor Swift’s performance was a nod to last year’s Kanye debacle that included the line “32 and still growing up … who you are is not what you did, you’re still an innocent.” But was she offkey?
We never really heard of Florence and the Machine before last night, but dayuuum that Florence sure can blow!
B.O.B. and Haley Williams from Paramore hit the stage to perform “Airplanes”. Did their youthful energy outshine the other acts?
Kanye West donned an all red suit for his “toast to the a$$holes” — Runaway. He also incorporated new G.O.O.D. music signee Pusha T to close the night.
