VMA FACTS

During a 1992 VMAs performance, Seattle grunge rockers Nirvana had a bit of technical difficulties when Krist Novoselic threw his bass up in the air and instead of using his hands to catch it, he used his face. To Novoselic’s credit, he continued to play after the incident.

Justin Timberlake had his first solo performance, “Like I Love You,” at the 2002 VMAs.

Peter Gabriel weighs in as the reigning champion in the category of most awards won in one night with a whopping ten, beating a-ha and Lady Gaga by two.
