MTV Video Music Awards

Since the first "MTV Video Music Awards" aired in 1984, the VMAs instantly earned its reputation for delivering the most popular bands and artists to create the loudest, most influential and at times, the most controversial, annual live celebration of music in the world. No other award show has been responsible for creating more memorable or bigger musical moments in pop culture history than the MTV Video Music Awards. From Madonna, Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses and Nirvana to Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Beyoncé, an appearance on the VMA stage can forever change the trajectory of an artist's career in one single night.

The 2011 Video Music Awards scored MTV's biggest audience in the network's history with a record-breaking 12.4 million total viewers. Additionally, Beyoncé's big MTV #VMA pregnancy reveal moment at the 2011 Video Music Awards made social media history at the time by giving Twitter a record bump: 8,868 Tweets per second. To watch video of 2011's biggest VMA moments, and see the full list of winners as well as fashion, celebrity and music commentary from the shows' red carpets, please go to VMA.MTV.com.
