Winners for "Viewer's Choice," "MTV2 Award," and "Best Video Game From a Soundtrack" were not determined at the issue of this release.

Officially launching on August 29th following the live VMA broadcast, "My VMAs," a dedicated channel within MTV Overdrive, will allow viewers to re-live and re-mix their VMA experience by combining their favorite moments from the star-studded night with exclusive, bonus segments, all available in an a la carte, on-demand menu. The expanded VMA footage will include in-depth "white" carpet fashion coverage; arrivals by yacht and tricked out cars; backstage artist interviews; as well as more music performances produced especially for Overdrive. "My VMAs" puts control in the hands of music fans and allows them to experience the VMAs the way they want.

The night started with celebrities flooding the white carpet as they arrived in their tricked out cars and luxurious yachts. For the first time in awards show history, celebrities revved up their engines for a pimped out and tricked out car show. The Game, Green Day, Ludacris, Shaquille O'Neal, Snoop Dogg, Lil' Kim, and Nelly wowed the white carpet as they showed up in their customized cars. While Usher, Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, Ricky Martin, Lil' Jon, and Trillville fashionably sailed into the arena. Carpet stopping performances from Fall Out Boy, Houston hip hop stars Mike Jones, Paul Wall, and Slim Thug, and Caribbean phenomenon Rihanna electrified MTV News' "Pre-Show by the Shore." There was so much action on the carpet that MTV News' extended the pre-show to an unprecedented two hours!

Water played a spectacular role in this year's show, omnipresent during performances and presenter moments throughout the evening. The special water effects were produced by Wet Designs, the same production company that designed the fountains at the famous Bellagio in Las Vegas. Inside American Airlines Arena, host Diddy dove right into the awards festivities by launching an explosive and dramatic water and fire show, as lithe dancers amazed the audience with their spectacular aerial moves from 25 feet in the air. Green Day explosively kicked off the music extravaganza with their hit "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," complete with pyrotechnical wizardry!

The party kept sizzling as Missy Elliott and Ciara introduced Ludacris to the stage. Ludacris started a world music party with "Pimpin' All Over the World" as drummers and dancers from Brazil, South Africa, and Trinidad joined his performance. And that was just the beginning of a night filled with music from the ultimate list of performers and star-studded presenters.

The VMAs marked the return of MTV favorites Beavis & Butt-Head. Throughout the show, Beavis & Butt-Head revealed the nominees for Viewer's Choice. Another memorable moment had Grandmaster Flash on the turn tables as Diddy introduced pop-culture icon MC Hammer who busted a move to his hit "U Can't Touch This." Ashlee and Jessica Simpson had a sisterly moment when they announced the nominees of Best R&B Video which were displayed on surfing plasma TVs positioned on the floor where hundreds of fans played an active role throughout the show.

The revelry continued as Miami Heat's Shaquille O'Neal & Dwayne Wade joined by Jessica Alba announced the next electrifying performance by Shakira. Making a splashy entrance amidst a duel of fire and water, Shakira gyrated onto the stage singing her hit "La Tortura" as Alejandro Sanz joined from the middle of the arena. To announce the winner of Best Dance Video, Usher kept the rhythm going as he brought up the Rize dancers from the popular David LaChappelle documentary. The Rize dancers in full clown make-up had the audience crumping in their seats. In another VMA first, R. Kelly performed Chapter 12 of his hit single "Trapped In a Closet" in theatrical one-man show. Performing in-the-round on center stage, he acted out all of the characters from his dramatical video series.

Hot couple Hilary Duff and Joel Madden, in their first official public appearance on TV together, introduced The Killers who amidst a pool of fire, performed their song "Mr. Brightside" from South Beach Miami's Hotel Victor, one of the remote locations of the night that showcased some of the most extravagant pools in Miami. Back to the arena, Diddy in a poignant moment, honored the late Notorious B.I.G. Diddy conducted a full orchestra as Snoop Dogg joined in this tribute to the famed rapper.

Fat Joe turned the volume back up with an energetic music moment, as Reggaeton superstars Don Omar, Tego Calderone, and Daddy Yankee joined him on stage with dancers working the audience into a frenzy. To keep up the energy of the music celebration, Diddy entrusted his "dogg pound" to cheer him on throughout the show. The show continued with the house lights simmering low as, Coldplay performed a moving rendition of "Speed of Sound," with Chris Martin running into the stands, creating an intimate performance.

Amidst a club setting, Kanye West, after winning Best Male Video, performed his smash hit "Gold Digger" that featured incredible background vocals from Jamie Foxx. At the end of their performance, the audience hit pay dirt as money shot onto the stage. Snoop Dogg introduced Dane Cook who had the audience laughing in their seats as he injected his unique brand of comedy into the show. Eva Longoria took the show to its second remote location, poolside at the National Hotel, as Mariah Carey belted out an energetic medley of her songs, "Shake It Off," and "We Belong Together." Carey was joined by her surprise special guests Jermaine Dupri, Jadakiss, and DJ Clue and Styles P.

50 Cent, joined by Mobb Deep and Tony Yayo, kept the energy up as he performed a medley of "Disco Inferno," "Outta Control," and "So Seductive." 500 tambourines clamored along throughout 50's frenetic performance. Then Diddy surprised the crowd as he brought on surprise performers My Chemical Romance, who rocked their hit "Helena" as 300 white umbrellas appeared in the crowd with Helena revealed under a sole red umbrella. The show came to a dramatic close with Kelly Clarkson's performing her hit "Since U Been Gone" with rain cascading down onto the audience.

The 2005 VMAs included appearances by the biggest names from the worlds of music, movies and television including Gwen Stefani, Jessica Simpson, Lil Kim, Ricky Martin, Ashlee Simpson, Bow Wow, Eva Longoria, Nelly, Hilary Duff, Joel Madden from Good Charlotte, Ciara, Alicia Keys, Usher, Jessica Alba, Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, Lindsay Lohan, Joss Stone, Jeremy Piven, and Snoop Dogg.
