While Ariana Grande took up the “Best Pop” VMA for her Iggy Azalea-assisted single “Problem”, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J went home empty handed. However, their performance medley was one of the show-stoppers at Sunday’s (Aug. 24) MTV VMAs.

Grande kicked off the performance with “Break Free,” Nicki Minaj performed a jaw-dropping rendition of her buzzing “Anaconda” single, and all three came together for their collaboration, “Bang Bang.”

The audience reactions to Nicki’s performance were priceless, especially Rita Ora’s at 4:02. LMFAO.
