The J-14 Editors had a tough time deciding their favorite moments from last night's MTV Video Music Awards -- there were so many to choose from! But alas, here are our top picks from the night where the unexpected can happen:
"All Adele need was a microphone, a spotlight, and a piano and I was glued to the tv. Her performance gave me goosebumps." --Photo Editor Danielle Kepler
"I loved the Britney Spears tribute. It was so cool to see kids dance to her most popular tunes. The choreography and the costumes were dead on and you could tell Britney felt honored by all the attention." -- Assistant Editor Rachel Sheehan
"My favorite moment of the night was the tribute to Amy Winehouse. Russell Brand's speech was sincerely sweet and Bruno Mars's performance to ''Valerie' was one of the most genuine moments of the night. Also, the guy can dance!" --Assistant Photo Editor Nicole Mazza
"Definitely The Hunger Games sneak peek. As a huge fan of Suzanne Collins' trilogy, I was seriously impressed by the footage -- it captured all the energy and suspense of the books. Plus, it's more obvious to me than ever that Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect Katniss Everdeen. Can't March 23 get here already?" --Editorial Assistant Leigh Weingus
"Jessie J completely blew me away as the VMA house artist. She sang every song from Katy Perry's 'Firework' to Cee Lo Green's 'Forget You' flawlessly... while sitting down with a cast on her left foot, no less!"--Editor-in-Chief Rachel Chang
"Beyonce and Chris Brown both blew me away with their performances. I literally screamed with joy when Chris began to sing my current favorite song 'Beautiful People,' and Beyonce showed that even pregnant (another big shocker of the night!), she can still dance her butt off in heels! Plus, it was absolutely precious when she rubbed her bump at the end!" --Associate Editor Kim Messina
