2010 MTV Video Music Awards Winners and Kanya West Performance - The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards was concluded at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, September 12, 2010. The event was hosted by Chelsea Handler, the first female in 16 years.
The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards was highlighted by Lady Gaga who received the most nominations, being nominated for 13 awards (18 including nominations for her collaboration with Beyoncé for "Video Phone"). This made Lady Gaga the most-nominated artist in VMA history for a single year, and subsequently became the first female solo artist to receive two nominations for Video of the Year when both "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" were nominated for the award. Lady Gaga also made another history by winning most awards by a female performer in a single night. Simply fantastic.
The highlight of the VMA 2010 for me however is the forgiveness which happened between Taylor Swift and Kanya West. Taylor Swift performed a song entitled, "Innocent" which talks about what Kanya West.
Kanya West then performed his own rap which mocks what he did during last years VMA. Here is Kanya West VMA 2010.
