The MTV Video Music Awards air live from the Los Angeles Forum this Sunday night, and as usual, the awards themselves will almost be an afterthought: The big moments will all come from the performances. Everyone remembers the Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke twerk-heard-around-the-world from last year, but how many recall that Justin Timberlake‘s “Mirrors” won Video of the Year?

Now we have a question for you: What is the single greatest performance in the history of the MTV Video Music Awards? Anything back to the first broadcast 30 years ago counts, so feel free vote for Madonna and her upturned wedding dress doing “Like a Virgin” (1984), Neil Young and Pearl Jam teaming up for “Rockin’ in the Free World” (1993), Sting‘s surprise appearance with Puff Daddy for “I’ll Be Missing You” (1997), Justin Timberlake reuniting with ‘N Sync (2013) or anything else from the long history of the show.
