The rapper – neigh, rhythmic mastermind – behind viral hit “Gangnam Style” is joined by host Kevin Hart in bringing the ubiquitous horse dance to the VMA stage.
In an homage to Cleopatra and ’90s choreography, cocked her “Cockiness” in front of a serpent’s open mouth.
For her first live performance of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” got positively balletic, getting a lift from a group of dancers.
Having left the Olympics behind in a trail of gold dust, Gabby Douglas flies over the VMA stage during performance of her new single, “Girl on Fire.”
The Flying Squirrel’s gymnastic leaps even put a bounce in the singer’s step, and the two high-fived as Douglas left the stage.
In case the command to “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” didn’t come through clearly enough, stomps her feet emphatically to really get her point across.
Joining rapper 2 Chainz for a bouncy performance of “Yuck!,” Lil Wayne lets his whole body – and all his dreads – go with abandon.
