Between the not-quite-record-breaking numbers and the dozens of HIGHlarious new GIFs that will forever be burned into our retinas, we think it's safe to say Sunday night's VMAs were enjoyed by
absolutely everyone nearly everyone except for sad Drake.
And we've got an EXCLUSIVE! interview with one of the big kahunas behind-the-scenes that helped make it happen!
Hamish Hamilton is the Emmy-nominated VMA Director responsible for a large chunk of the aforementioned awesomeness, so we just had to pick his brain on topics like *NSYNC's reunion and the Taylor Swift reaction shots!
Ch-ch-check out the full EXCLUSIVE! interview and see what he had to say…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
