No worries because we have the wrap up right here! This year's VMAs didn't really have any shocking moments (Kanye West surprisingly did not show up), but there were some great performances: Frank Ocean sang a beautiful acoustic version of "Thinking About You" with a fake fire behind him, Pink had dancers with giant lips as heads, Alicia Keys did "Girl on Fire" with help from Nicki Minaj while Gabby Douglas flipped around on stage, and even more happened! A surprise was when Amber Rose (Kanye's ex) showed up with Wiz Khalifa in a dress accentuating her new baby bump!


The focus of the night was mostly on One Direction, and the British boy band ended up winning THREE awards! But, congratulations is due to Rihanna who won Video of the Year!
