The 2007 MTV VMAs: New Location, Same Drama

jtimberlake.jpg Known for some of the most outrageous moments on television, MTV's Video Music Awards did not disappoint Sunday at Las Vegas' Palms Hotel.

The show, which bestowed its trademark Moon Man statues to winners in a variety of categories, began with a much-hyped performance by Britney Spears, who many agree failed to deliver. The former Mouseketeer wandered around the stage lip-synching to her new song, showing signs she's been on hiatus for a little too long. CNN declared the performance a "train wreck," while Variety reported Spears was "bleary and unprepared."

And that was all in the first three minutes. Later, during Alicia Keys' performance, Kid Rock and Tommy Lee decided to brawl over Pamela Anderson. That fight ended with the two rockers being escorted out of the building. Then, to top off the evening, Kanye West added one more outburst to his resume. After losing in all five categories he was nominated for, West ranted backstage that he would never return to MTV.

Despite the drama, the show managed to hand out several awards as well. Justin Timberlake was the big winner in four categories, including Quadruple Threat of the Year and Male Artist of the Year. Rihanna won Monster Single for the song "Umbrella" and Fergie won Best Female Artist. --Chris Sardelli
