10 Most Cringeworthy VMA Moments

Sure, we watch the MTV Video Music Awards to see our favorite artists pick up a trophy or two for their work in the past year and to watch some phenomenal performances. But there’s a big reason it’s way more fun to watch than, say, the Grammys: Having this many stars in such a party-hard atmosphere always leads to some of the best unscripted moments on TV.
