The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were chock-full of shocking moments and showstopping performances, from 'N Sync's much-anticipated reunion to Miley Cyrus' dirty dancing with Robin Thicke. Here's a look at those and other memorable moments from inside Brooklyn's Barclays Center -- and beyond
Best Song Ever?
The guys of One Direction -- Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne -- celebrated their VMAs win for Best Song of the Summer (for the track "Best Song Ever") but were greeted with boos from the audience. Lady Gaga later showed her support for the group backstage, telling them she wanted to leave because she was so upset at the way people had reacted. "You deserve every bit of success that you have," she reassured the Brits.
