Another edition of the famous music awards went down this weekend and we were not spared by surprises. 

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

Held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the event was by all means a show. Starting with Lady Gaga's typical costumes and behavior, and up until the highly anticipated reunion of 'N Sync. While Justin Timberlake was doing his thing on stage, his former band mates came up, performing some of their old hits. Dressed in animal print Ungaro for the red carpet and later on in boxer's shorts, Katy Perry got the crowd on their feet, closing the show with a performance of her new hit single, Roar. The singer revealed that her new album, Prism, is going to be light and happy rather than dark, which got everyone even more excited. Some performers, on the other hand, embrace the dark side, and aren't afraid to transform it into song. You know who we're talking about: miss Taylor Swift. While receiving her award for I Knew You Were Trouble, the singer thank the person “who I wrote this song about cause you know who you are and now I have this award.” We can guess that's Harry Styles she's talking about, because the moment he got on stage with One Direction and started speaking, Taylor was filmed mumbling “shut the f*** up”, while pal Selena Gomez smiled shyly. This is not the first time the singer is caught on camera in such un-ladylike situations, as she's also been spotted making faces at Selena's ex, Justin Bieber. Our advice: just don't step on her toes.

And if that weren't enough, Miley Cyrus was the talk of the evening – not in the field of romance, but in that of performance. Her singing “We Can't Stop” with life-sized teddy bears may have been censored because of the word “molly”, but when Robin Thicke got on stage and Miley stripped down to nude latex underwear, that's when the show began. Miley acted as back-up singer and privade twerker for Robin, and if anyone still had doubts about her not being Hanna Montana anymore, they can now be in peace.

Another highly anticipated moment of the evening was Daft Punk's performance, after the electro-pop duo couldn't sing at Stephen Colbert's show, because of contractual obligations to MTV. However, instead of the hit of the summer, Get Lucky, all we heard from Daft Punk was the introduction of an award, for best female video. Not what everyone had expected!
