Never a dull moment! It was all about wardrobe malfunctions and Queen Bey at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 24. During the show, held at the The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Nicki Minaj was caught undressed, Miley Cyrus kept us on our toes and Beyonce seriously claimed her throne. Here’s a look at some of the most memorable moments from the awards show. 

1. Beyonce Features Home Videos During Video Vanguard Award Performance, Kisses Jay Z and Blue Ivy on Stage

Beyonce took the stage for 15 minutes to perform a medley of songs from her latest self-titled album before accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The songstress kicked off her sparkling performance with "Mine" then transitioned into favorites like "Drunk in Love" and "Partition," while also including lesser-known songs like the sex jam "Rocket" and the emotionally intense "Jealous." The best part of Bey’s performance? Watching husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy cheer her on in the audience before presenting their main lady with the Video Vanguard Award.

2. Nicki Minaj Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction During "Bang Bang" Opening Number with Ariana Grande, Jessie J

Nicki Minaj helped kick off the awards show with Ariana Grande, Jessie J and a wardrobe malfunction! After sexily performing her new track “Anaconda” in a green sequined two-piece number, Minaj failed to complete a quick outfit change and had to hold her black mini dress together when she joined Grande and Jessie J on stage for “Bang Bang.” The rapper later told The Hollywood Reporter, “We ran out of time getting the dressed zipped up.”
