MTV’s Video Music Awards 2014 turned out to be one of the most exciting music shows of this year with performances from Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and more. If you missed out on the performances, here is a quick overview of what you missed and what people are talking about.
Beyonce Delivers Killer Performance
Everyone this week is talking about Beyonce and the exciting performance that she delivered at this year’s VMAs. Beyonce performed her new song “Mine” which featured blue fire that lit up behind her and she was surrounded by people dancing in white. Beyonce was also nominated for eight awards and went home with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement. She was nominated for more awards than any other artist at this year’s show.
Nicki Minaj Performs Like a Pro
Nicki Minaj showed everyone her expertise at performing during the VMAs when she encountered a wardrobe malfunction during her performance of “Anaconda.” While the performance itself went just fine, it had to be adjusted. The performance was originally supposed to feature live snakes but had to be modified after a backup dancer was bitten by one of the snakes during the rehearsal.
Miley Cyrus Shocks With Homeless Man
Miley Cyrus shocked viewers once again when she invited a homeless guy to the stage to make her acceptance speech for her. She said that she was using the speech in order to raise awareness about homeless youth in America. The person that she invited to the stage, 22 year old Jesse Helt, is now wanted by police on a probation violation in Oregon on an unrelated matter.
