The MTV VMAs were packed with excitement in LA tonight. The show opened with a performance by Lady Gaga in character as Jo Calderone, which she even maintained when presenting Britney Spears with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award later in the night. Kanye West and Jay-Z took the stage after being announced as performers just hours before things got started. The Watch the Throne duo rocked their hit "Otis," though the song was almost disrupted by a fan who rushed the stage. Another hot performance of the evening was by Jay-Z's wife Beyoncé Knowles, who belted out "Love On Top," and showed off her growing baby bump in front of the audience. Justin Bieber took home the moon man for best male video while Katy Perry was honored with three awards, one of which she accepted with Kanye for their collaboration on "E.T." Russell Brand took the stage to introduce a special tribute to Amy Winehouse, which included a performance by Bruno Mars, and Kim Kardashian stepped out in a sexy dress as a presenter. Katie Holmes also presented an award and Jennifer Lawrence, who joined the show via video from the set of The Hunger Games in North Carolina, shared a short clip from the movie.
