Last night was the annual MTV VMAs which brings the music industry together to celebrate the art of video-making. This year the ceremony was held in Brooklyn New York.
Throughout the evening we were treated to performances from Lady Gaga who opened the show with her new single ‘Applause’ and Katy Perry who closed the show with her new single ‘Roar’.
That’s not all…
We were also somewhat treated to what some are describing as a ‘Car Crash’ performance and well, if you got the chance to see it, it was slightly uncomfortable.
Yes, we’re talking about the ‘performance’ from a semi-naked Miley Cyrus who ‘twerked’ and gestured her way around the stage wearing something that should probably only be worn in the bedroom – if that.
First up, a video of the performance – be warned, if you’re eating or you’re with your Grandparents, don’t watch just yet. We’d also like to know how long you lasted in the video before you clicked away.
Strange huh, you’re not alone if you thought that way. Let’s take a look at some of the best reactions from during and after this odd ‘performance’.
Normally we like to keep the best till last, that’s how things usually go but we just had to share the reaction of Will Smith and his family first. Caught by audience cam, it really is priceless.
Next up is a collection of photos that a kind Twitter user has put together to show their reactions during the performance and yes, the reaction above does seem to remain consistent throughout.

Remember if you bought a copy of Achy Breaky Heart in the 90's then YOU are directly responsible for Miley Cyrus

Someone needs to perform an exorcism on Miley Cyrus.

I'm just really disappointed in Miley Cyrus. She could've been a young classy woman but no. She became this. pic.twitter.com/xs5kaJ2ybq

I just read that Miley Cyrus twerked at Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs and then realised that I don't know what any of those words mean.

Miley Cyrus went from being a 20 year old woman to being a 12 year old boy in a single evening. #Impressive.

I thought "twerk" was where Yorkshire folk went on a week day. #MileyCyrus

We’re not even sure if this one was during the performance or while watching the video but we’re sure that dogs would also react the same way as us.

However following her performance her dad Billy Ray Cyrus took to Twitter to comment and while he didn’t say anything directly, he made his point clear.
Thanking God for so many blessings tonight. Continue to pray for world peace. More love …less hate.

What did you think of her performance? Were you as shocked as us? Have you found a better reaction? Let us know and we might just add it above.
