MTV VMAs 2001

The 21st century was here and MTV had to put on a show worthy to usher in the new century. So they decided to get back to the legendry Metropolitan Opera House in New York with Jamie Foxx as the Master of Ceremony. The super talented Foxx led the show with an operatic medley of some of the year’s big hits. Weapon of Choice featuring the Academy Award winning Christopher Walken fetched Fatboy Slim six shiny Moonmen in 2001 including Breakthrough Video and Best Direction. NSYNC came in second with a haul of four awards including Best Dance Video, Best Group Video, Best Pop Video and Viewer's Choice. Michael Jackson made a surprise visit to the VMAs when he appeared out of nowhere and did a little jig to Timberlake’s ‘Beatboxing’. Lady Marmalade took the Video of the Year and Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya, Pink and Missy Elliot all got one award each for their contribution to the song. Alicia Keys was awarded the Best New Artist for her song Fallin’.

Britney Spears did not disappoint with her performance of I'm a Slave 4 U, dancing with tigers and snakes, unfortunately for her, PETA took notice and she was given a lesson what not to use as props. U2 also performed Elevation and Stuck in a Moment, stuck without an elevator riser, Bono joked that MTV had forgot to pay the electricity bills. Others on the bill included Linkin Park, Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez feat. Ja Rule, Missy Elliott feat. Ludacris, Nelly Furtado & Trina. MTV seemed happy with the show save for Bono’s comment.
