In many ways, the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards could have been dubbed the 2014 MTV Nicki Minaj Rear End Awards.
First, music's top Twerker performed alongside Ariana Grande for a rendition of "Bang Bang."
Then, Minaj brought out the big

It included Usher bouncing his head off Nicki's butt. Seriously! Check out all the fun and raunchy moves now:
Other performances that stood out from the VMAs included Beyonce putting on an epic medley prior to being handed the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard trophy, along with Taylor Swift performing "Shake It Off" for the first time.
