No host? No problem!

Sunday night's 2011 MTV VMAs had the highest ratings for the show ever! The Los Angeles Times reports that according to Nielson Co., the audience was up 9 percent compared to last year's VMAs; 12.4 million viewers tuned in to the show -- which didn't have a host -- making it MTV's most-watched telecast ever.

The show didn't fail to deliver -- a glowingly pregnant Beyonce performed, along with Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, and a cross-dressing Lady Gaga.
