The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards took place last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The night was packed with incredible performances including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Macklemore & Lewis with Jennifer Hudson and Kanye West. Justin Timberlake stole the night with a performance featuring a medley of hits and a brief reunion with his NSYNC bandmates.
The most talked about performance was that of Miley Cyrus who shocked the audience with a raunchy rendition of her smash We Can’t Stop. She then joined Robin Thicke for an even raunchier performance of his hit Blurred Lines before staying on stage to dance whilst he sang Give It 2 U. Oh Miley!!
