Jessie J performed her hit "Bang Bang" at the American Music Awards 2014, with Ariana Grande joining her on the track and several audience members dancing along.

And by dancing, we mean shaking booty in the case of Khloe Kardashian, and Taylor Swift ... doing whatever it is Taylor Swift does. Because obviously. Watch:

The British brunette beauty certainly bang banged into the room in her tight, gold body suit, while Ariana and Nicki Minaj provided the track even more energy.

While Ariana did her thing on stage, Jessie worked the crowd, getting down with Taylor and Khloe, the latter of which gave her bottom a smack in mid-performance.

Ariana's brother and Big Brother star Frankie Grande also caught the cameras' attention, bopping along to the catchy tune as he supported his little sis and cohorts.

Jessie J's peformance was but one of many memorable efforts at the 2014 American Music Awards, a star studded bonanza that also featured the likes of ...

Ariana Grande has become a huge diva, according to the Internet.

Not according to "Bang Bang" collaborator Jessie J, however.

According to J-squared, the rising star isn't full of herself in the slightest. Rather, Grande just knows "what she wants," Jessie opines, and goes after it.

"I always say, judge a person when you meet them," she says.

"I’ve met Ariana, and there’s a very thin line between 'diva' and 'survival mode.' And a lot of people can’t [differentiate that] ... and I’ve had that," she said.

"I've had the diva stuff. And it’s when people can’t cope with how passionate you are, and how much you care," the "Price Tag" singer went on to explain.

So basically, to hear Jessie J tell it, Ariana is out there hustling and winning, and people just can't accept it because she's not always meek and submissive.

We can sort of see it as a possibility, but do you believe it?

Not even 12 hours ago, a show-opening Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj VMA performance offered fans their first taste of "Bang Bang" the duo's new single.

The divas, along with their third collaborator Jessie J, decided this wasn't sufficient, however, debuting the official “Bang Bang” music video the same night!

Take a look at the pop power trio's effort below and see what you think:

“Bang Bang” is a late but strong entry to the annual "Song of the Summer" debate, facing stiff competition from Ariana's "Problem" among other hit songs.

The video is appropriately hot, featuring Jessie J singing from fire escapes, Ariana prepping for a night out and the "Anaconda" rapper crashing the party.

Via helicopter, naturally. Go hard or go home, right Nicki?

Fortunately for Nicki, unlike the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards stage, there were wardrobe malfunctions involved in the making of this video. Probably.

All of that looks pretty deliberate to us.

She came. She saw. She Twerked. She blew up Twitter. Yes, Nicki Minaj's VMA performance was the talk of the event ... and that was before she even took the stage.

The slithering, seductive, Sir-Mix-a-Lot-inspired song, its cover art and video have already generated insane buzz, inspired countless memes and shattered YouTube records.

To top it all off, a giant snake bit one of her dancers during her VMA rehearsal, leaving fans wondering how the actual performance could possibly live up to the hype.

See the live debut of the Nicki Minaj Anaconda phenomenon - bookended by somewhat unlikely medley collaborator Ariana Grande - and see if it did:

If it didn't quite mesh with expectations, it's only because there was so much going on. No one can accuse the 2014 MTV VMAs of phoning in this year's intro.

Grande opened the awards show with her hit song “Break Free” in a sparkly silver getup, followed by Minaj strutting her stuff in "Anaconda" themed attire.

Minaj and her booty-shaking backup dancers were all covered in green body paint resembling the jungle, with plenty of raunchy writhing to go around.

Just from the humans, fortunately. The snake was 86'd from the performance.

English singer Jessie J then joined Nicki and Ariana to perform their new hit song “Bang Bang,” after which Minaj suffered a wardrobe malfunction of sorts.
