The Buzz: Justin Timberlake Stuns, Miley Cyrus Twerks On...

Justin Timberlake stuns, Miley Cyrus Twerks on...

"True Blood" - Inspired by the hit vampire show, this cut looks to set the night life on fire as JT, accompanied by a floor rockin' track, croons about a deadly female who's looking for a bite. Will the song be featured on the show? Don't be surprised. (Photo: Rick Diamond/Getty Images for MTV)

The President of Pop - After an amazing two decades in the industry, Justin Timberlake was presented with the MTV Video Vanguard Award last night. Just like the show stopping tribute that he did to honor Charlie Wilson at the BET Awards, Justin once again took the stage to tear it down, but this time tributing himself. It was absolutely perfect! Congrats JT! (Photo: Rick Diamond/Getty Images for MTV)

Best: Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke at the VMAs - Cyrus and Thicke made "twerk" the word of the year with their raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. While their NSFW antics angered some, the duet became the most talked-about five minutes of television all year.(Photo: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for MTV)

Twerk Miley Miley Miley... Twerk! - In a seemingly inappropriate, uncomfortable and jaw-dropping moment at the VMAs, Miley Cyrus stripped down, twerked, danced on Robin Thicke and won the Internet last night. Robin performed "Blurred Lines" and transitioned into "Give It 2 U." There are really no words for what Miley did, but like Jay Z said, "somewhere in America, Miley Cyrus is still twerking."

Controlling the Stage - Kendrick Lamar is nominated for 14 BET Hip Hop Awards this year, just murked the competition with "Control" and he joined Robin Thicke and 2 Chainz on the VMA stage last night for "Give It 2 U." He's definitely having one of the best years in rap. (Photo: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for MTV)

Dapper x 2 - Always the dapper Don, 2 Chainz took Brooklyn by storm with his signature style and a fiery performance with Robin Thicke and Kendrick Lamar. From the BET Awards to this year's Hip Hop Awards, 2 Chainz is the man to watch. (Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage for MTV)

Kanye West - First up is Yeezy's contrasting performance: instead of performing (as expected) the high-energy, dogs-out "Black Skinhead," West went for the remarkably minimalist "Blood on the Leaves," which was as moody as we've ever seen 'Ye. (Photo: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for MTV)

"Blood on the Leaves" - Last night Kanye West took to the VMA stage with a silhouetted performance of "Blood on the Leaves." It didn't connect with a wide audience but the meaning of the song it samples, "Strange Fruit" by Billie Holiday, is what everyone should pay attention to. Low key, Kanye gave a beautiful history lesson last night, so fans should continue to pay attention. (Photo: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for MTV)

Rihanna, in the Flesh - In minimal make-up, and wearing some Rihanna for River Island fashions, pop princess Rih Rih watched the show from the audience, mostly seeming preoccupied with what was going on in her row. But we noticed that she stuck around long enough to see Drake perform and then left.(Photo: Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic for MTV)

"The Language"  - Ratchet goes international. "F--k going platinum, I look at my wrist and it's already platinum/ I am the kid with the motormouth, I am the one you should worry about," spit Drake with his signature sing/rap flow. The beat stays on the slow tip, but the crushing bass makes this one the official speaker rattler. (Photo: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for MTV)

Never the Same - Bringing his album cover art for Nothing Was The Same to life, Drake performed his new classic "Started From the Bottom" and latest single "Hold On, We're Going Home." It was dope to see Drizzy straddle the line between R&B and hip hop live. Wait to see if he takes any 2013 Hip Hop Awards home for some of his best music this year.

NY Boy - You know you're a real New Yorker when you'd rather hop the train to the VMAs than take car service. That's just what A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and Rocky's girlfriend, supermodel Chanel Iman, did last night. Check this pic here of the crew riding to the big show and showing that once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker.     (Photo: LindesyIndia via Instagram)
