ICYMI: The 2016 MTV VMAs featured some memorable and historic moments onstage — Beyoncé slaying with her Lemonade performance, Britney Spears’ comeback after nearly a decade, and Drake honoring Rihanna with the Vanguard Award — but fans had their own fun online creating hilarious memes throughout the night.
Here, Us Weekly rounds up some of the best memes and observations from the red carpet and the show.
No doubt Beyoncé owned the night with her fierce performance of songs off her Lemonade album, but her fashion off stage caught the attention of several fans, who compared her to everything from the feather duster from Beauty and the Beast to an ornament atop a Christmas tree.

2. Britney Spears
Spears’ return to the VMAs stage after nearly a decade was cause enough for celebration, but her rockin’ body gave fans something more to cheer about. Her barely-there yellow outfit, however, summoned up images of Borat for some viewers.

3. Chance the Rapper
Chance the Rapper definitely channeled a very particular set of cartoon characters with his overalls and cap combo. The only question was: Mario or Luigi?
Drake missed the opportunity to accept his own MTV VMA for Best Hip-Hop Video (“Hotline Bling”), but he definitely wouldn’t miss the chance to present the Video Vanguard Award to Rihanna, the woman he’s been in love with “since [he] was 22.”

When Rihanna accepted Drake’s words of high praise in addition to the Vanguard Award, she gave him what can best be described as a friendly hug, sparking memes all over the internet.
