21. Tommy Lee and Kid Rock Stage the Las Vegas Fight Club (2007)
In 2007 the Video Music Awards took over the Las Vegas casino the Palms, with not only performances on the venue's main stage, but entire hotel suites given over to parties "hosted" by nominated artists. The train started going off the tracks from the opening close-up on Britney Spears's hastily assembled wig, and got more chaotic from there. Kid Rock attacked Tommy Lee during Alicia Keys's performance in an incident that caused Jamie Foxx to quip about "white-on-white crime." West got upset that his performance was in a suite and not on the main stage and reportedly claimed he would "never return to MTV." Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds got into a post-show fight that resulted in a concussion, brain hemorrhaging and vertigo. The next year's ceremony returned to the cozier confines of a Los Angeles studio lot — where West closed the show.
