Despite New York Fashion Week being in full swing, all eyes were on the star-studded red carpet last night at music TV's biggest night out.
Madonna was the star of the MTV awards, dressed in a chic all-black ensemble by British designer Jonathan Saunders, she paid a long and moving tribute to her old friend Michael Jackson before his sister Janet and a team of dancers performed on stage in his memory.
Those honoured at the awards, included Beyonce who won Video of the Year for 'Single Ladies', but only after Kanye West heckled Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video, asserting Beyonce should have won the award.
