Round up: Best moments of the 2015 VMAs
Following the 32nd installment of the MTV Video Music Awards, we round up the highlights from the eventful night

With this year's VMAs hosted by Miley Cyrus, we expected nothing less shocking than her controversial performance with Robin Thicke in 2013. With spectacular performances by award-winning artists, extravagant costumes and a bit of bad blood spilt on stage, this year surely did not disappoint. Have a look at the most memorable moments below: 

1. Nicki Minaj's opening performance with a special appearance from Taylor Swift. The two VMA winners made up their Twitter feud by warming up the stage with their glittery red frocks and friendly embraces.
