The wildest and craziest award show of the year has lived up to its name once again!
Of course, we’re talking about the 2016 MTV VMAs — which made up for the lack of shocking WTF moments (Miley Cyrus was nowhere to be found) with truly phenomenal performances!
Between Beyonc├â┬⌐‘s show-stopping mini-concert, Kanye West‘s seven-minute rant, and Britney Spears‘ triumphant return to the VMA stage, there were plenty of can’t miss moments from the red carpet and show!
