Best: Miley Cyrus
You've gotta give it to Miley Cyrus: the girl knows how to put on a show. Witness tonight's performance of "We Can't Stop," which saw the former Hannah Montana energetically vamping in a teddy-bear leotard before stripping down to cream-colored "bra and panties" and shamelessly grinding her butt against Robin Thicke's man-parts. Sure it was distasteful, but this is the VMAs, which has long billed itself as the craziest, least family-friendly awards show out there - and Cyrus's crotch-thrusting, no-holds-barred performance fit perfectly in that tradition. Say what you will about her onstage antics, but as memorable moments go, no one who saw her performance tonight will likely forget it.
