MTV VMAs: Top 5 Moments From the Show

Taylor, Miley, Bieber and more!

Missed the action live? Here are the top 5 moments from the show.

1. Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj took the stage together: Swift opened the show not only with her new music video for "Wildest Dreams," but performing with Minaj, who if you recall, she had a bit of beef with a few weeks back over the nominations for the VMAs. They performed "Bad Blood" in an ironic twist and hugged after the set, laughing afterwards. It was a surprising way to kick off the show.

She closed the night with a performance that was as wacky as you'd expect. The outfits were colorful and the lyrics were not soft-spoken, as about 30 dancers joined the pop star on stage. Cyrus gave the audience a look into what her "Bangerz" tour is really like. "Thank you for tuning into the f----- VMAs, I'll see you next year," she yelled.

She also announced a new album.

5. Taylor Swift had a huge night: Swift went into the VMAs with the most nominations and took home a bevy of Moonmen. With her "Bad Blood" video co-stars there to support her, Swift took home the biggest award of the night, Video of the Year, and ended her acceptance speech on a sentimental note. "I'm just happy that in 2015, we live in a world where boys can play princesses and girls can play soldiers," she said.
