My Top 10 VMA Performances

The 2012 Video Music Awards are only 4 days away!!!!  I'm so excited because it is honestly one of my favorite award shows.  I've been watching since I was 8 or 9.  Since the VMA's are coming up in a few days, I decided I'd do my top 10 favorite past performances.  I will be blogging all about this years VMA's also.  Who are you most excited to see this year?  The 2012 VMA's are September 6 on MTV.

10.  I'm A Slave 4 U by Britney Spears

This performance was considered "racy" back in 2001.  I loved it though.  I thought it was cool with the whole jungle theme.  Plus she dances with a live boa snake.  I'd never do that.

9.  This I Promise You/Bye Bye Bye/It's Gonna Be Me by *NSYNC

*NSYNC was my boy band obsession.  Although they performed many times on the VMA's this was my favorite by far.  Using the TV screens was so cool and really creative.  In 2000 our technology wasn't anywhere near what we have now so it was awesome to us.

8.  You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift

Right before this performance Kayne West had ruined her first ever VMA win.  Nothing could stop her though and she nailed it.  I love her because everything she does is for the fans.

7.  Real Slim Shady/Way I Am by Eminem

Eminem is genius no matter what he does.  I loved how hundreds of people dressed exactly like him.  This stood out to me most for that reason.  I would call this performance iconic for the VMA's.

6.  Like I Love You by Justin Timberlake

JT had finally went solo!  I loved the song, the dancing, pretty much everything about it.  Most say he was trying to be like Michael Jackson but I didn't feel that way.

5.  Wall To Wall/Kiss Kiss by Chris Brown

Chris Brown is an amazing dancer.  The 2007 VMA's were in Miami so it had a different setup than usual.  Hopping over people to dance on tables was awesome and unexpected.

4.  Confessions/Yeah by Usher

Usher killed this performance.  I love both songs.  Singing under rain was something I hadn't seen on stage before.  Plus his shirt comes off!

3. Tilt Ya Head Back by Nelly and Christina Aguilera

I love how it had a flapper theme to it.  Plus Christina looked and sounded amazing.  You would think they wouldn't sound right together but they did.

2.  Baby/Somebody To Love by Justin Bieber

For his first ever VMA performance he did amazing.  I just have Bieber Fever!

1.  Paparazzi by Lady Gaga

Only one word can describe this.  EPIC
