MTV VMAs: My Top 5 Memorable Moments

Brooklyn was rockin’ last night as the location for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.  I watched the entire show and here are my Top 5 most memorable moments of the night:

1. *NSYNC Reunites!

There were rumors on Twitter all week that the five boys from *NSYNC would reunite on the MTV stage during Justin Timberlake’s Vanguard performance.  And I squealed like a little girl when Joey, JC, Chris, and Lance popped up from below the stage to join JT for “Girlfriend” and “Bye Bye Bye.” And then a mere minute later, the boys dropped back below the stage and were bye, bye, bye themselves.  I know it was quick, and some fans were a bit disappointed, but I thought it was perfect.

2. Justin Timberlake’s Performance

We were treated to a Justin Timberlake mini-concert last night and, WOW, he was awesome.  It was hit after hit and dance move after dance move.  Justin is a true entertainer that often reminds me of Michael Jackson, so it was perfect that he was there to receive the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award” or an MTV Lifetime Achievement Award.  Jimmy Fallon introduced JT as “The President of Pop” and, after last night’s electrifying performance, I’d have to agree.


3. Taylor Swift

Okay.  She didn’t technically PERFORM last night, but Taylor Swift was all over the TV screen.  She showed up in a gorgeous blue gown and retro pinned hairdo.  She’s always one of the best dressed. But she needs her publicist to remind her that the cameras are always watching.  She was a little saucy when her ex-boyfriend, One Direction’s Harry Styles, took the stage. We saw Taylor mouth the F-bomb to her bestie, Selena Gomez.  And when she won Best Female Video for “I Knew You Were Trouble” she said, “I also want to thank the person who inspired this sing, who knows EXACTLY who he is, because now I’ve got one of these!” and she held up her moon man award.  But what I love most about my girl Tay is that she always enjoys herself at these award shows.  We caught her jumping out of her seat and dancing along to every single live performance.

4. Oh, Miley

This photo of the Will Smith family says it all.  “What the…?”  I was equally confused and uncomfortable during Miley’s entire performance of her hit song, “We Can’t Stop.”  But then things turned worse when she started “twerking” on Robin Thicke during his summer smash, “Blurred Lines.”  (On a side note: I was super bummed I didn’t get to see a true “Blurred Lines” performance.) Miley continued to hump Teddy Bears, a foam finger, and some of the band members. All while wearing a shiny nude bikini.  Moms everywhere are mourning our Disney darling, Hannah Montana. There’s still time to STOP, Miley.

5.  Katy Perry’s Knockout Performance

It was a little tough to pick between Lady Gaga’s opening number and Katy’s closing number, but I had to give the win to Katy who took her stage to the base of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.  She was dressed like a sparkly prize fighter and had fun choreography and some powerful vocals.  I love her new single “Roar” and I hope there’s more girl power anthems on her new album Prism, which will be released this fall.
