The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards: Did you watch?

Last night, MTV put on quite a show for the 2013 VMAs. Between the crazy fun performances and the even crazier celebrity drama, there weren’t any dull moments in the house last night. And the show was so big, they couldn’t keep it contained to the venue. Did you see Katy Perry rock out to her new song “Roar” on the historic Brooklyn Bridge?!

Check it out below…

As usual, the night was filled with tons of our fave stars. Besties T. Swift and Selena grabbed up tons of camera time when they picked up matching Moon Men and then proceeded to dance the night away during the killer performances by Drake, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars. Taylor finally got to finish a VMA acceptance speech (thanks, Kanye!) and ended it with the kind of ex-boyfriend shout out that we all wish we could give to the guy who broke our hearts.

Of course, the star of the show was definitely Justin Timberlake, who won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and rocked a 20-minute long performance, where he was even (briefly) joined by his boys from N*SYNC. JT’s Video Vanguard award wasn’t a surprise, but that rest of the awards announcements had us biting our nails. Read on to see if your fave videos earned them a Moon Man.
