The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone, providing plenty of memorable moments from the red carpet to the big stage at the Forum in Inglewood.

From Taylor Swift's red carpet prediction of her own terrible dancing (she delivered) to Blue Ivy and Beyonce showing us all how it's done, this night had it all.

Amber Rose's VMA dress turned heads (as did Demi Lovato's), Ariana and Big Sean were caught holding hands and Common paid tribute to Michael Brown.

As expected, we saw Nicki Minaj Twerking until the cows came home (and Usher sampling the goods), the Kardashians looked bored to tears, and Lorde?

Lorde was Lorde. Awkward, talented Lorde.

Did you miss the ceremony? Want to see all of the aforementioned highlights and more in just two minutes? Let's break down the 2014 MTV VMAs in GIFs!

Have you clicked through our MTV Video Music Awards fashion gallery yet? Have you decided who looked best and worst on the red carpet?

Okay, good. Now it's time to focus on the actual music at the center of the MTV Video Music Awards.

At last night's fun ceremony, Taylor Swift sang "Shake It Off" for the first time live. Nicki Minaj gave us multiple looks at her Twerking rear end. Adam Levine sang very handsomely on stage. And Beyonce put on one of the most memorable performances in event history.

Whose set did you like best? Whose will you be telling your grandchildren all about? Whose vocals and/or choreography were lacking?

An already elaborate and outrageous Nicki Minaj VMA performance became even more risque thanks to a wardrobe malfunction Sunday night on MTV.

Talk about kicking off the show with a bang ... bang.

The mega-show at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., kicked off with a hot, nearly seven-minute-long medley performance by Minaj, Ariana Grande and Jessie J.

Grande performed "Break Free," Minaj slithered through her butt-celebrating single "Anaconda," and Jessie J joined them on the trio's new track "Bang Bang."

At that point came Minaj's wardrobe malfunction.

So what happened? She attempted a quick outfit change to a black dress for the collaboration with Ariana and Jessie J, but didn't quite make it in time.

She awkwardly spent their time on stage holding her tight black dress together while she tried to multitask and rap. Which she did admirably, we must say.

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.

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 guns buns for a live performance of "Anaconda," before later also joining Usher on stage for a dance-filled version of "She Came To Give It To Me."

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.

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.

A backup dancer working on the MTV Video Music Awards performance of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" was bitten by one of the actual snakes during rehearsal Friday.

A six-foot-long boa constrictor named Rocky, who was being used as a prop, bit the dancer; Minaj was on stage and personally rushed to her dancer's side.

This Nicki Minaj GIF may cause many anacondas to grow in length. If you know what we mean!

According to MTV, the incident occurred when the dancer was carrying the huge snake draped around her shoulders. The music was immediately stopped.

Minaj rushed over asking, "Did she just get bit by the snake?"

The snake, which constricts is prey, is not venomous. The unidentified female was treated at the scene where her wound was cleaned and then hospitalized.

This was done to prevent bacterial infection "out of an abidance of caution," said Chris Velvin, director of production safety for MTV's parent company Viacom.

Two of Hollywood's most eccentric stars made appearances on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet last night.

First, rumored new American Idol judge Nicki Minaj posed in a skin-tight outfit, yellow hair sprouting out the sides of a stylish black hat.

Then there was Ke$ha, who... looked sort of normal. For Ke$ha at least. Flowing blonde hair and a lack of facial glitter is simply not what we expect from this singer.

Did the regular look throw you off? Did it top Nicki's outfit? Compare and vote below.

The Fierce Five - Gabby Douglas, 16, McKayla Maroney, 16, Kyla Ross, 15, Jordyn Wieber, 17, and Aly Raisman, 18 - appeared at the MTV VMAs last night.

One of America's gymnastics golden girls in particular made her presence felt, however, during Alicia Keys' performance of "Girl on Fire" late in the show.

Midway through the song, Nicki Minaj appeared on stage to perform her verse, which included a shout-out to Douglas, who then tumbled onto the stage!

Nicki Minaj rapped: "Took me on the balcony, telling me to jump with her / Yeah, I'm in the ghost but I ain't doing stunts with her / I ain't trying to be that, haters want to see that / But I got 'em aggy, cause I win the gold like Gabby."

Cue Gabby!

Douglas strutted past Keys and performing a series of cartwheels, jumps and back hand springs, flashing her million-dollar smile and high-fiving Keys as she left.

Talk about making an entrance and an exit. The lame Russian judge probably found some obscure reason to deduct points, but we'd give Gabby a perfect 10.

Our only regret? That she didn't do this for every artist. The Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz MTV performance really could've used a little gymnastics flair.

Talk about a matchup made in celebrity fashion heaven.

Lady Gaga's performance as Jo Calderone wasn't the last we saw of her male alter ego at the MTV Video Music Awards. She showed up at Sunday's event in character and continued to channel Jo at an after party following the show!

Topping last year's meat dress wasn't easy, but she may have managed it in her understated drag. That is way too convincing. Gaga may have even outshone Nicki Minaj - not an easy feat - for wildest couture choice of the night.
