VMAs Recap: The 2012 Winners & Highlights


Although the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards were cut a little short this year to make room for President Barack Obama, they still packed a punch. The night's festivities began right on the red carpet, where Wiz Khalifa's fiance Amber Rose pulled a Beyonce and announced her pregnancy! Looks like this is a new tradition sparked by Queen Bey: we can't wait to see next year's VMAs just to find out who's having a baby.

How did the performances go? Frank Ocean performed his mega-hit "Thinkin' Bout You" and left everybody swooning, boy band sensation One Direction harmonized through "One Thing", and Green Day rocked out to their new song "Let Yourself Go". Alicia Keys & Nicki Minaj tore up the stage with "Girl On Fire" while Rihanna + A$AP Rocky rocked RiRi's new song "Cockiness". Lil Wayne returned and performed his new tune "No Worries", while Pink stole the show with "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)". Last but not least, Taylor Swift and her latest anthem "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" closed the show, finally living out her dream as being Ms. Popular!
