MTV Video Music Awards 2014: 7 Important Moments From The Show

Make sure you don't miss any important moment from the VMAs earlier!


The music industry's biggest names came together earlier for the MTV Video Music Awards 2014 at The Forum in Los Angeles to recognize the artists who made it big this year. Relive some of the important moments from the event in this list we came up with for you!

1. The performances, of course! Haven't seen Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, and more artists perform their chart topping hits yet? We've compiled them for you over here.

2. Katy Perry and Riff Raff showed up wearing a recreation of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's American Music Awards 2001 outifts (the best couple's outfit to grace red carpets, TBH). We can't help but feel a little happy and sad, because Brit and JT will always be one one of our OTPs.

3. Lorde became the first female artist to win Best Rock Video Award for "Royals." The 17-year-old beat Linkin Park, Imagine Dragons, Arctic Monkeys, and The Black Keys in the category.

Even her BFF Taylor Swift is too happy for her because she clearly deserved the award!

4. The recent death of actor Robin Williams shook the entertainment industry. During the VMAs earlier, a short tribute to the actor (a montage of his photos with Coldplay's "A Sky Full Of Stars" playing in the background) was flashed onscreen.

5. Ed Sheeran took home the Best Male Video Award for "Sing," beating Eminem, John Legend, Pharrell, and Sam Smith. This is Ed's first win at the VMAs, but he was already nominated in the same category in the past for "Lego House."

6. Miley Cyrus turned into an emotional wrecking ball when she won the Video of the Year Award for "Wrecking Ball," and asked a formerly homeless man named Jesse to accept the award on her behalf. Miley brought the attention to helping runaways and homeless youth in the USA.

7. Beyonce was awarded this year's MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for her contribution to the MTV culture and to the music industry. Her husband Jay Z and their adorable daughter Blue Ivy presented the award to Queen Bey after her performance.

P.S. Baby Blue was doing this during her mommy's performance. Totes adorbs!
