The Most Memorable VMA Performances

In Uncategorized on September 1, 2010 at 3:58 pm

I have loved the VMA’s for as long as I can remember. I think when pop tension used to exist it was even more enjoyable. The Brit/Mandy/XTina/Backstreet Boy/NSYNC era made for some AMAZING skits and dirty glances.

I thought I’d run through some of my all time favorite performances — see if you guys agree with any of them.

EMINEM — SLIM SHADY

No matter what the hell Eminem chooses to do in regards to his performance, it will always be outlandish and memorable. That’s what makes him amazing. This specific performance was revolutionary because this was really his first big ass foot in the door — and he nailed it. Hard.

MADONNA, BRIT, AND XTINA — LIKE A VIRGIN


The phrase “Sex Sells” couldn’t be more fitting for this performance. You take three of the most powerful, hot women of their time, stick em in lace and allow them to make out. What really could go wrong with this stunt? Absolutely nothing. It will go down in VMA history, no doubt in my mind.

TAYLOR SWIFT — YOU BELONG WITH ME

I’m not even a huge Taylor fan — but this intro to her performance at the VMA’s was out of this world. She started in the subway station with a hat and jacket on — got more into the song ripped it off and revealed a hot red dress. She then started singing while trying not to fall in the subway, eventually taking her to the VMA’s. SO cool.

ALICIA KEYS AND JAY Z– EMPIRE STATE OF MIND

I dug everything about this performance, except for the party crasher at the end aka Lil Mama. Alicia is an amazing pianist/singer and Jay Z was on HIS SHIT that night. It didn’t hurt that his ridiculously beautiful wife, Beyonce, was jamming out in a hot red dress front row.

BRITNEY — I’M A SLAVE FOR YOU

I mean…. do I really need to say anything? She was the epitome of hot during this performance. Take a slammin (*at the time) singer, put her in a bikini top, belly ring, and wrap her in a python. Again I say my friends, how could this performance have gone wrong? You’re right — it couldn’t possibly have.
