Timberlake, 'N Sync take over VMAs

The MTV Video Music Awards are all about Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake took over the awards Sunday night, wrestling the spotlight away from a rehabilitated Lady Gaga, an X-rated Miley Cyrus and a vengeful Taylor Swift with a medley of hits and the rumoured reunion with former boy band mates 'N Sync.

Timberlake - the night's top nominee with early leader Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - also was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award by Jimmy Fallon. "I don't deserve the award, but I'm not going to give it back," Timberlake said. "I'm taking this home."

Timberlake, dressed in a black suit and black hat with a red feather, powered through a breathless series of solo hits before the other four members of 'N Sync - JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass - joined him on stage, opening with Bye Bye Bye.

"Half of the moonmen I've ever won, I won with those four guys right there," Timberlake said pointing at his former band mates while holding the Vanguard trophy. "So above all else, I'm going to share this - we can keep it my house - but I'm going to share this award with them."

Up till then, the ladies of pop music dominated as Cyrus became the rare artist to upstage Lady Gaga. But Swift managed to take the spotlight from both after appearing to utter an expletive when One Direction and rumoured former love interest Harry Styles appeared at Sunday night's award show - a moment that lit up Twitter and was memorialised immediately in a GIF online.

She also thanked a former beau for helping her win another moonman trophy for I Knew You Were Trouble in the best female video category. "I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because I got one of these," Swift said. "Thank you so much!"

Gaga changed costumes four times during her first return to the stage since hip surgery as she performed her new single Applause at the top of the show. It was a predictably unpredictable appearance for Gaga, who seemed to pump in boos over the over the sound system as she opened the song in a white nun's habit and square headdress. By the time she finished the song, she was surrounded by unitard-clad male dancers and wearing a thong bikini decorated in shells and a long blonde wig.

Cyrus immediately kicked things up well beyond provocative, however, as she appeared on stage with a multitude of dancing teddy bears in a bodysuit adorned with a cartoon character. She twerked to her song We Can't Stop, changed into a nude bikini, ran a fan's foam finger along her privates as Robin Thicke appeared on stage to perform Blurred Lines, then gave the singer a lap dance. "Miley better go get a pregnancy test after all that grinding," comedian Kevin Hart joked afterward.

Kanye West continued his stark portrayal of new music from his album Yeezus, performing Blood on the Leaves with its controversial Nina Simone "Strange Fruit" sample in silhouette in front of a black and white picture of a tree.
