The 2015 MTV VMAs always provide plenty to talk about the next day. Along with Miley Cyrus as host, a teary-eyed Justin Bieber plus the launch of a 2020 Kanye West presidential campaign, there were some pretty killer music performances.
The evening took off with a full-on spectacle that started a show that never slowed down. Nicki Minaj, in a full-on Queen of Everything setup, was the first to take the stage, soon joined by Taylor Swift (and with that, we guess their beef is over). The superstar duo put a public end to their beef by singing together on Trini Dem Girls, The Night Is Still Young and a jaw dropping Bad Blood before tossing it over to another epic twosome.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis pulled off a massive street performance in downtown L.A., throwing down an unforgettable old-school performance of "Downtown," being joined by Eric Nally of Foxy Shazam who really stole the show.
It was possibly the highest anticipated act of this year's MTV VMAs and The Weeknd delivered big time. The stunning performance of his smash summer hit "Can't Feel My Face" left the audience screaming and Twitter begging for more.

Justin Bieber (or maybe just his hair) was the talk of twitter leading up to his triumphant return the VMAs. In one of the more bizarre moments of the night, The Biebs got a little teary-eyed but still killed it on stage.
If you tuned into Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, you might have noticed Kanye’s presidential campaign announcement or Miley and Snoop Dogg bonding over a batch of brownies. But in between all the over-stimulating craziness, there were actually some winners to celebrate!
And as of now, Nicki isn’t mad about Taylor’s win for “Video of the Year,” but she is significantly less impressed with Cyrus’s hosting performance.
See below the winners for the top awards of the night from one of the most bizarre award shows in the history of ever.

The BET Awards have always been known for their amazing performances as well as their eyebrow raising moments, and last night's show had plenty of each. So in case you missed it, here were the best and most entertaining moments of the 2015 BET Awards.
Ross feeling about rappers Tyga and Chris Brown were very evident when she paused in the middle of her introduction to chuckle and give some serious side eye before saying their names.
We're not entirely sure why Rihanna was wearing a roll of duct tape as a bracelet, but we do know her duct taping antics stole the show.

The Bad Boy reunion performance at the show was already epic enough, but with Diddy falling off the stage during the middle of it, the performance reached legendary status. Mainly because we know that we'll be seeing gifs of it for years to come.
