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)

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)

"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)
