Watch The Biggest MMVA OMG Moments From 1990s and 2000s
This year’s iHeartRadio MMVAs were full of OMG moments, from Marianas Trench and their balloon-filled red carpet entrance, to Lorde’s incredible closing performance (watch the entire show again here).
Over the years we’ve come to expect the unexpected from the MMVAs. With a red carpet that allows guests to arriving in any type of vehicle or outfit they want, to a live show that takes place right on the street, the MMVAs are the perfect place to see OMG moments.
During this year’s iHeartRadio MMVA Pre-Game, we took a walk down memory lane to relive some of the biggest OMG moments from the MMVAs of the 1990’s. We’ll never forget Alanis Morissette’s 1995 performance from Helsinki, or all the wacky award deliveries, including a presenter on fire and one taking a nose dive over the railing in the Much lobby. What about Bush (or Bush X in Canada) and their 1997 performance that ended with frontman Gavin Rossdale having to fight off fans to hang onto his guitar?
The 1990s were packed with incredible performances by musical legends like David Bowie and A Tribe Called Quest, who made their final Canadian performance at the 1998 MMVAs. The 90’s were also a time of firsts, like the first time using the internet during the annual award show. Chat room. Real room. Trippy.
Not to be outdone, the next decade of MMVAs continued the tradition of outrageous moments. We loved that Lenny Kravitz brought Denzel Washington as his guest when he performed at the 2000 MMVAs. Most Canadians will never forget the 2002 MMVAs when newcomer Avril Lavigne forgot her belt and accidentally mooned the entire country. Of course, there was also the time that Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock put the ‘eh’ in PDA, and we can’t forget Sum 41’s penchant for setting off firecrackers and soaking the MMVA crowd with water guns.
The 2000s are also the decade of arguably the greatest MMVA entrance ever, when Flo Rida opened his 2008 performance by zip-lining onto the stage from the fifth floor of the Much building. Oh. Em. Gee.
