ESSENCE Poll: What Was Your Favorite Part of the VMAs?
Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic for MTV

Miley Cyrus’ twerking set Twitter ablaze last night during the 2013 MTV VMAs. The former Disney star’s onstage romp with Robin Thicke set a Twitter record of 306,100 tweets per minute. Cyrus was clearly out to get the award for most provocative performance of the night. Even Kanye West was subdued in comparison, performing “Blood on the Leaves” on a blacked-out set. It wasn’t until the end of the song that the audience got to see Kanye’s face.

Other notable moments included a mini Justin Timberlake concert, an N’Sync reunion, a surprise appearance by Jennifer Hudson and Rihanna looking bored out of her mind. Did you watch the VMAs?
