Christmas came early this year as the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards had not one but two amazing performances by Rihanna last night.
The “Umbrella” singer performed the first song of the night, leading off with a fantastic rendition of her hit “Disturbia,” accompanied by a team of backup dancers.
Then, later in the night she joined T.I. for a lengthy medley including “It’s Your Life” in which traded in her S&M-inspired “Disturbia” costume for a rock and roll chick getup including a cropped black leather jacket and black jeans with black leather boots.
According to press, Rihanna’s boyfriend Chris Brown kept a close eye on her during her rehearsal with T I the day before the VMAs, accompanying her to the venue and sticking around for the duration of practice.
It was a big night for Britney Spears at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, as she get to make up for her less-than-stellar performance last year with a big win.
Though she’s been nominated multiple times throughout her tenure as an American pop music princess, Brit never got to take home a moon man - until tonight.
The “Gimme More” songstress garnered the trophy for Best Female Artist for her video for “Piece of Me,” and received a warm congratulations from her manager/date Larry Rudolph.
Upon accepting the award, Spears said: “I’m speechless, oh my goodness, thank you… this is an honor. I first want to thank God first and foremost for just blessing me like this.. um...my beautiful family, my two beautiful boys for inspiring me everyday and my fans… this if for you. Thank you so much.”
Later on in the evening, Britney continued on with her winning ways - picking up two more awards for Best Pop Video and the much-coveted Video of the Year trophies.
You gotta hand it to Lindsay Lohan - no matter what’s going on in her crazy life, she always looks so good! And at tonight’s 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, LiLo definitely brought her fashion A-game.
The “Labor Pains” actress wasn’t messing around when she made her way down the red carpet, sporting a sexy black form fitting dress, complete with matching platform heels.
And of course, Miss Lohan was joined by her deejay girlfriend Samantha Ronson as she meandered around the Paramount Studios venue.

Though she’s only 15, Miley Cyrus already has a way with the media. And earlier tonight she was hamming it up on the red carpet at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
The “7 Things” sweetie actually got a chance to chat with her fellow Best New Artist nominees, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry (who recently made a comment that she’d like to kiss the “Hannah Montana” starlet).
And Miley looked absolutely fabulous in a sleeveless black sequined belted dress teamed with a pair of strappy black heels as she posed with Swift, Perry, and her mom Tish.
