Best MTV VMA Performances Of All Time

Tomorrow, August 28, will be the much awaited MTV's 2011 Video Music Award before putting so much buzz about this upcoming event, comes up with a very interesting list of 10 Best MTV VMA Performances of All time.
10. Rihanna - Distrubia/ Seven Nation Army (2008) = It's the 25th Anniversay of VMA's and Rihanna opened the show with her hit song Disturbia in a black leather outfit and spectacular performance.
9. Eminem - The Real Slim Shady/ The Way I Am (2000) = Eminem's performance is one of the VMA 2000's notable performances alongside with Britney Spears Satisfaction. Eminem performed his two singles The Real Slim Shady and The Way I Am, the performance began with Eminem's single The Real Slim Shady which started outside the Radio City Music Hall on 6th Avenue, Manhattan. Eminem continued his performance into the arena and was followed by multiple Eminem 'clones' wearing white tank tops and baggy jeans with dyed bleach blonde hair
8. Taylor Swift - You Belong With Me (2009) = Swift performed "You Belong with Me" , the same day in which Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech. She began the performance in a subway station, dressed in a brown trench coat and black beanie, and continued it in a subway, taking off the trench coat and revealing a red cocktail dress. Once the subway docked at a stop, Swift completed the performance atop a yellow taxi cab.
7. Beyonce - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) (2009) = Beyoncé performed her song Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) in 6 inch heels. Onstage, she performed her well-known choreography for Single Ladies with over two dozen female dancers dancing with her.
6. Madonna - Vogue (1990) = Madonna gave a memorable performance of her hit "Vogue," which featured Madonna and her dancers dressed in an 18th-century French theme, with Madonna bearing great resemblance to Marie Antoinette. The performance consisted of both a dramatic 18th-century reinterpretation of "Vogue" as well as her dramatically becorseted breasts.
5. Bon Jovi - Livin on A Prayer/ Wanted Dead or Alive (1989) = Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora turned out a legendary stripped down acoustic performance of the Bon Jovi hits "Wanted Dead or Alive & "Livin' on a Prayer," and in the process provided the inspirational spark for MTV Unplugged.
4. Madonna / Britney / Christina - Like A Virgin / Hollywood(2003) = Madonna portrayed a groom kissing her brides, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, on stage. The gender role-reversal and lesbian theme instantly made front page headlines. The three singers performed a medley of her early hit, "Like a Virgin", and her then latest release, "Hollywood", with a guest rap by Missy Elliott. The design resembled Madonna's performance of "Like a Virgin" at the 1984 VMA: the same wedding cake set, wedding dresses and "Boy Toy" belt worn by Madonna in 1984 now adorned Aguilera and Spears.
3. Lady Gaga - Paparazzi (2009) = Lady Gaga performed her song "Paparazzi" and shocked the audience when she appeared to bleed out on stage. It was actually a contraption in her outfit.
2. Britney Spears - I'm A Slave 4 U (2001) = Britney Spears gave another memorable performance when she took the stage to sing her new single, "I'm a Slave 4 U." Along with dancing in a very revealing outfit, the performance is probably most remembered for featuring the singer in a cage with a tiger and briefly dancing with a live albino Burmese Python on her shoulders.
1. Michael Jackson - Medley (1995) = Michael Jackson performed a medley of his main songs, some new songs including "Scream." Slash played guitar on "Black or White." I think, no one can beat MJ when it comes to giving remarkable performances.
