Remember when MTV (music television) actually used to play music videos on TV? Yeah, we do too. Pour one out for the good ol' days...

After three years of airing 'round-the-clock music, MTV unleashed a phenomenon known as Video Music Awards upon the world in 1984.

The idea? To celebrate the artists that brought our favorite tunes to life on the small screen and intersperse said awards with live performances from those very artists.

That was probably where MTV went wrong. Or very, very right.

What happened after that first very crazy VMA show in 1984 when Madonna's "Like a Virgin" took on new life was that the ante was summarily upped.

Every musical act to come would need to bring their A-Game if they'd make headlines the next morning. Plenty of them, from Madge to Miley, managed to do just fine.

In honor of the 30th MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, let's take a walk down memory lane to relive the 17 craziest moments in VMA history ...

Like a Virgin
Madonna didn't intend to writhe around on the stage during her 1984 performance of "Like a Virgin." She lost one of her shoes and the rest became history.

Hey, Lady Gaga is just calling it like she sees it. Or at least like Jo Calderone, her male alter ego who performed at the MTV VMAs last night, sees it.

Jo put on quite the show on stage, but also in the press room, where he weighed in with some, um, interesting remarks about Britney Spears.

Asked if he would hook up with Britney, Calderone said this ...

Lady Gaga and Britney Spears

"Well, maybe if she wants to, you know what I'm saying ... She is f--king hot. Britney's f--king hot. I don't know. Gaga is my girl, but Britney's f--king hot - this is f--king Britney Spears! Didn't you jerk off to Britney when you were a kid?"

Okay then.

As for who the heck Jo Calderone - an anagram of "Alejandro" - thinks he is and where he came from, the drag version of Gaga had this to say:

In addition to winning Best Pop Music Video for "Till the World Ends" at the MTV Video Music Awards last night, Britney Spears was recognized by the event.

The singer was given the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for her life's influence on music videos, with a two-minute dance tribute performed in her honor.

None other than Lady Gaga-Jo Calderone presented the award:

Upon winning Best Pop Music Video, she took the stage and could not help getting a little choked up discussing her family and beau Jason Trawick!

"Thank you so much," Britney Spears gushed. "I wasn't expecting this!"

"First I'd like to thank God, for blessing me so much. And my beautiful family - my two boys, Jayden and Preston, Mommy loves you so much. My management team... And to all my fans! And to Jason ... I love you!"

Aww. She was pretty emotional. Check it out after the jump:
