The MTV VMAs were cray!
Old beefs were settled, and new ones were started! Stars fell into burning rings and threw their hats in the ring!
Surprises were had! Tears were shed! Nips were slipped!
And we have every amazing moment for you right here… in our GIF recap (below)!
Before the show even began, Nick Jonas brought the show to new Levels of sexy with some dirty dancing with Kelly Osbourne.
Then Nicki Minaj got gynocentric with her opening performance of Trini Dem Girls.
And then special guest Taylor Swift came out to join her, proving their beef is officially over!
Or is it???
It totally is!
The only Bad Blood was in Tay's song!
Next, Macklemore ditched the stage in favor of the streets to perform a live version of his Downtown music video!
Host Miley Cyrus came out as self-deprecating as she was colorful!
With some help from Andy Samberg and Ike Barinholtz, she showed everyone just how she makes those cray Instagram posts!
Jared Leto debuted his new hair color (PINK! We LOVE it!) as he introduced…
…The Weeknd, who held the crowd in the palm of his hair as he set the stage on fire — literally — with I Can't Feel My Face!
Taylor and Selena Gomez approved!
Rebel Wilson broke the law, dropping a surprise, completely uncensored F-bomb on her shirt as she HIGHlariously ranted against the police… strippers!
Then when Nicki accepted the award for Best Hip Hop Video, she threw back to host Miley…
And threw some straight NSFW shade!
Miley took the high road — well, kinda, not really!
And after that awkwardness, the burn didn't stop…
As Demi Lovato got hot for Cool For The Summer, throwing a pool party for all the cool kids outside!
And brought on surprise guest Iggy Azalea!
Next, Justin Bieber came back to the VMAs for the first time in a half decade, showing us he could fly…
Forget dropping the mic — Tori Kelly dropped the entire guitar as she performed Should've Been Us.
Finally, Kanye West accepted the Video Vanguard Award — from presenter Taylor Swift, who jokingly referenced their infamous 2009 run-in…
But it was Kanye himself who brought the house down — the White House that is — by announcing his 2020 run at the Presidency! WHA??
Pharrell had a
dance card full of "F"s for his performance of Freedom.
Miley spoke from backstage, covering herself only with the curtain — which resulted in a nip slip on live TV!
Then with the help of 30 drag queens and The Flaming Lips, Miley finished the show with a bang!
Will Miley be back for more insanity next year?? We can't say for sure… but she is the GIF that keeps on giving! LOLz!

We were waiting for that jaw-dropping moment at the 2015 VMAs -- and we think Kanye West just checked off that box!
The All Day performer was awarded the night's honorable Video Vanguard Award, presented to him by Taylor Swift, who spoke about the infamous "Imma let you finish" fiasco from six years ago.
But when Yeezy took to the stage, he made it abundantly clear that he doesn't understand award shows!
After relishing in the applause for a bit too long, the rapper gave a long-winded speech that seemed to start out as an apology for his past antics, then turned into throwing MTV under the bus for only wanting good ratings, and then he reminded us that children are the future.
'Ye wrapped up his speech the best way possible -- by, what else, announcing that he'll be running for president in 2020! (Yes, srsly!)
Check out the speech (above) and see if you think Kanye is seriously running for prez!
