WORST: Iggy Azalea Fails to Get Fancy

The most noteworthy part of Iggy Azalea's performance was what was missing: The Australian rapper didn't use her VMAs spot to perform "Fancy," a track up for Video of the Year.

Considering how lackluster the VMAs were on a whole, the crowd-pleasing megahit "Fancy" could have been a much-needed adrenaline shot. Instead, we got the downer single "Black Widow" with Rita Ora.
