2011 MTV VMAs: The Performances — UPDATED

The big night has finally arrived! At last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, we were treated to show-stopping performances by the likes of Eminem and Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Florence + The Machine. This year’s lineup is possibly even more enticing, with Lady Gaga, Jessie J, Adele, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, The Throne, and the pregnant Beyonce amongst the talents on hand. We’ll update this post as performances as appear online throughout the night. Head below to see Lady Gaga (or is that Jo Calderone?) doing “You & I” and the pre-show’s “You Make Me Feel” from Cobra Starship featuring Sabi, among many others. Who stole the show?

    Kinda disappointing actually. B’s performance was cute but that’s all.

    I find it kind of disgusting that Beyonce used her pregnancy as a chance to get “the moment” from the 2011 VMA’s… she would do anything to grab headlines, even exploit her unborn child.

    Beyonces performance was so cute and precious I loved it to death and that song all by itself really makes you smile it is my favorite track on the album. No it wasn’t as theatrical as we know she can be but it was powerful all in its own.

    That Britney tribute was simply a joke, it came and went so fast I thought like people were going to be apart of it? It was like hey Britney, look what you cant do anymore

    I found Adele’s performance a bit off key and pitchy but that’s to be expected from a habitual smoker, the effects its having on her vocals are clear.

    The JayZ Kanye performance was just a utter waste of time

    Chris Browns less than subtle lip-syncing took away from an otherwise decent performance

    Gaga was Gaga I didn’t like the last VMA performance she did and I don’t know if I liked this one. It was so weird when she started dancing with the dancers but I really liked the opening skit.
