MTV Video Music Awards
While some stars hit the right notes when it came to red carpet outfits, others fell flat at the VMAs. In these worst dressed pictures from the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, see some far-from-flattering ensembles from some unlikely candidates like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Rita Ora and Alicia Keys... and some not-so-surprising faux pas from rappers 2 Chainz and Nicki Minaj.
Alicia Keys was blazing hot as she premiered her brand new single and album title track 'Girl on Fire' at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (Sept. 6.) She began the song singing in the dark, illuminated only by the red lights on the stage. She was also standing up while playing the piano and wore her newly shorn locks slicked back. She was hotter than the lava of a thousand volcanoes. Yeah right she was!
As you can see in these performance and show pictures from the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, the entire evening was jam-packed full of entertaining moments. Rihanna kicked off the festivities in true gangsta fashion, rising from beneath the stage lounging in a throne, all while basking in red light. She sang 'Cockiness' and 'We Found Love,' but the ultra risque first song was definitely the standout.
