Madonna, 'Like a Virgin', (1984)

Madonna's performance of her seminal hit at the 1984 VMAs is one of the most iconic live moments in the awards show's history, and the perfect complement to its equally famous nuptially-themed video. Even though it didn't win any awards at the VMAs the following year (despite three nominations), the "Like A Virgin" video ensured that bridal style would never be the same. Britney Spears' and Christina Aguilera's reenactment of the look during their onstage tryst with Madge, nearly two decades later in 2003, only reinforces the clip's legendary style, and cultural status.
