Best: Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake’s 15 minute-performance practically counted as a mini-concert and has to be the VMA’s longest one ever. Though it was probably too long for the short-attention-span generation, he showed why he is, as Jimmy Fallon bestowed upon him, The President of Pop. (What? Is King of Pop still taken?). Running through a career retrospective, he proved himself to be a modern day song-and-dance man. The disappointing, blink-and-you’d miss-it ‘N Sync reunion aside, it was killer.
