Three years after the inception of MTV as a music channel in 1984, MTV introduced the world to the MTV Video Music Awards, a show that was designed to celebrate the best music videos in a year. The very first VMA had Bette Midler and Dan Aykroyd to lord over the proceedings and they were the right people for the job, the stage was set for all that was to follow in the coming years. Madonna took to the stage dressed in a white wedding gown and had the attention of every single person in the audience with an unforgettable performance of Like a Virgin. Michael Jackson
