WORST: Basically the Entire Show

Did the 2014 VMAs even happen? Unless you work for one of the brands that sponsored the show (and had their names repeated over... and over... and over again on-air), there wasn't a whole lot to cheer about at this year's event, a strangely somnambulant affair periodically interrupted by commercials. Sure, there were a few memorable moments — Miley allowing a homeless youth to accept her Video of the Year Award, Beyoncé's show-capping medley, Blue Ivy being adorable — but nothing on Sunday night truly broke through in a big way. MTV will be lucky if people are still talking about the show next week, let alone next year. The whole thing was so blasé that even the butts looked bored. And there were a lot of them.
