The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards had some surprises! Missed the show? No problem—We’ve got a recap with the evening’s highlights.


BEST PERFORMANCE: TAYLOR SWIFT

Unlike most performers, she didn’t have a skimpy outfit on, and she managed to make it fun and interactive.


MOST OUTRAGEOUS OUTFIT: NICKI MINAJ

She had humongous yellow hair that was as big as a bird’s nest, with a red and black crystal jumpsuit. She definitely stood out—especially since you could see her hair glowing in the crowd. 


BEST AWARD WINNER: DEMI LOVATO FOR BEST VIDEO WITH A MESSAGE

Her song really did have a great, deep message, and she’s so down to earth and grateful.


MOST UNEXPECTED WIN: VIDEO OF THE YEAR

No way did I expect Rihanna’s “We Found Love” from a year ago to steal the award from new, hot artists!


BIGGEST SHOCKER…

JUSTIN BIEBER DIDN’T WIN ANY AWARDS! For once he went home empty handed, and One Direction trumped him. Seems like his time is up…
