There were plenty of highlights during last night’s 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards; 90s boy band ‘NSYNC reunited for one song; Lady Gaga wore a box and sea shells; and dozens of artists wowed with performances throughout the show.
But the most talked about was without a doubt Miley Cyrus’ bizarre performance of her single “We Can’t Stop” and duet on stage for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”
Miley’s racy performance raised a lot of eyebrows and left many watching perplexed, especially the celebrities sitting in the audience. The priceless reactions soon went viral online, so we rounded up some of the best audience reactions from the show, plus what the stars were saying on Twitter after watching the performance!

Things I learned watching the #VMAs2013: There’s nothing you can do with a foam finger that you can’t air on MTV.
