Vote on All the Performances From the 2014 VMAs

Aug 25 2014 - 7:00am

Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift [1], Sam Smith, and Usher [2] were among those to perform at the VMAs [3] this weekend. It was definitely a star-packed show, though some performances were better than others. I won't name any names, but . . . Beyoncé. Vote on all the songs, and let us know whether you wanted to stay with "Stay With Me" or whether you wished you could shake off "Shake It Off." (See what I did there?)

Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande, "Bang Bang"

The trio performed a bangin' version of their hit song, complete with a possible wardrobe malfunction [4] on Minaj's part.

Taylor Swift, "Shake It Off"

Swift brought her usual bubblegum charm to a performance of "Shake It Off," the video for which [5] is still on our minds.

Sam Smith, "Stay With Me"

Smith got the audience all kinds of emotional for his stripped-down performance of "Stay With Me."

Usher, "She Came to Give It to You"

Can you really top Usher [6]? The dance machine brought some slick moves to his performance of "She Came to Give It to You."

5 Seconds of Summer, "Amnesia"

5 Seconds of Summer ended up losing the artist to watch award to Fifth Harmony, but at least they got to perform "Amnesia" for the crowd.

Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora, "Black Widow"

Azalea and Ora went vampy for their performance of "Black Widow," sticking with a spidery theme.

Maroon 5, "Maps"

Adam Levine brought his pipes to the stage to perform Maroon 5's current hit, "Maps."

Beyoncé, Medley

And finally, Queen Bey performed a 15-minute medley of some of her most popular songs, including "Drunk in Love."
