But after all the night was all about the videos, and so here are the more memorable ones...

The night started and ended with honoring Michael Jackson.

 

Here is the trailer of Jackson's upcoming film, "This is It." The last glimpses of the "King of Pop" doing what he did best.

 

 

And then there was the new 'New Moon' trailer introduced by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner...

 

Lady Gaga had her moment to shine and did it with fake blood...

 

And then there was the moment of the evening courtesy of Kanye West at Taylor Swift's expense... 


 

 

And then Beyonce got up on stage to show the world why West had to do such a shout-out...

 

 

 And who can forget Paula?

 

All in all, a very eventful night. What did you think?
