The MTV Video Music Awards never fail to provide us with a vast array of WTF?! moments. For example, Miley Cyrus‘ foam finger and twerking combo will forever be ingrained in our minds. And between her controversial “Like a Virgin” performance in 1984 and her threesome kiss with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in 2003, Madonna is a VMA legend. Tragically, these moments often overshadow slightly less insane (but still totally nutty) incidents. What about those other crazy escapades that didn’t get as much headline love? Some folks may have forgotten, but we have not.

Sure, Eminem and Rihanna made passionate musical fire on 2010′s “Love The Way You Lie” and last year’s “The Monster.” But did they have enough in common to sustain a full collaborative tour?

Yet once they took to the stage at New Jersey’s Metlife Stadium on Saturday, the combination sparked middle finger-raising magic as fans rocked to a monster sized 50-song set list.
Each year, MTV’s Video Music Awards boasts a fantasy lineup of every artist you’d ever want to see in concert. But unlike many festival extravaganzas, the most crucial performance is usually the opener. This prized slot always goes to the superstar guaranteed to bring the gasps with awesomely unexpected antics. Among the unforgettable opening acts are Britney Spears and Madonna‘s infamous kiss, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky‘s sizzling duet, and Eminem leading an army of bleach-blonde Eminems through New York City. This year, reigning pop queen Ariana Grande has been tapped to open the proceedings. How will she measure up to these past greats? We can’t wait to find out!

Following its release….they remained a little known punk funk band from Los Angeles. Gradually though, over successive releases and tours, they built their fan base and finally broke big with their fourth long player, 1989’s Mother’s Milk.
