VMAs Hottest Moments

9/1/2006 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

VMAs rock NY: Click to launch galleryThe biggest names in music rocked Radio City Hall in New York last night for the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. While some critics have already panned the show as one of the worst in years, you can't blame the stars.

A leather clad Beyoncé rocked the house with her new single "Ring The Alarm," Shakira gyrated all over the place in belly dancing garb and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz even brought a monkey to the red carpet.

Check out TMZ's gallery of the hottest people, moments and on stage performances from the evening. It might be easier than sitting through the three-and-a-half hour show again.

Beyonce is a PIG and her parents need to tell her to CLOSE HER LEGS AND KEEP SOMETHING FOR THE IMAGINATION! GROSS! NASTY!

Wasn't she trying to be classy at one point?

She has animals killed for the fur but gets her own fur waxed off???

I like her skin tone, let's club her, skin her, and make a coat out of her.
And I'm not a member of PETA. But I hate injustice, fair is fair. Rip her skin off!

I like Beyonce but do not like the new song she performed. I thought it was horrible. Love Christina as she is a real talent and liked Justin T's performance. I didn't find Jack Black funny and thought the show in general was boring.

I think "Ring The Alarm" is AWFUL. Cool video, but the song is torture. She's a great performer, but should have chosen a dfferent song......

Paris looked like a f*cking idiot.

the performers weren't bad, but there were constant screwups (jack black reading the teleprompter for lil kim's lines) and he just wasnt funny AT ALL. while i am liberal, they should never bring politics (al gore) into the VMA's. by doing that they alienated viewers, audience members, and "stars" who don't agree with the global warming idea. yes beyonce should have had a little more class than to walk out in a trench and do a christina-esque pelvic thrusting performance, but f*ck you guys, its beyonce and shes earned the right to f*ck up once or twice.
overall the VMA's sucked

WHAT IS THE RUSH    

IT LOOKED LIKE THE GANGSTER VMA, THIS IS NOT MUSIC, THIS IS A SHOW OF WHO HAS THE BEST BLING. HATS BACKWARDS, LARGE JEWELRY HANGING FROM THEIR NECKS, IT LOOKED LIKE THE VGA. I FOR ONE AM THROUGH WITH THE VMA, THIS IS NOT MUSIC. WHAT HAPPEN TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS WITH BANDS AND DANCERS AND GREAT STARS. THIS LOOKED LIKE VMA ON CRACK, AND BRITNEY AND KEVIN, PLEASE DO WE NEED THEM MAKING FUN OF THEIR UNIMPORTANT LIFES AGAIN, THEY ARE BECOMING THE BIGGEST JOKE COUPLE OF ALL TIME. NICK AND JESSICA LEAVE THEM ALONE ALREADY, THEIR DOING FINE WITHOUT YOUR, HEY, THEY ALMOST RAN INTO EACH OTHER, HEY, THEY ALMOST FLUSHED THE TOILET, HEY, WHAT KIND OF CRAP SHOW WAS THIS, WHEN PARIS HILTON IS CONSIDERED EVEN A MUSIC ENTERTAINER,. BOB DYLAN SAID IT BEST. MUSIC IS NOT WORTH CRAP THESE DAYS, NOT HIS EXACT WORDS, BUT DARN CLOSE.

WHAT IS THE RUSH    

What is amazing is how black the white entertainers become. Suddenly they sound black and walk with a swagger. Some go back in time like Christina who thinks she is Jean Harlow and this is 2006. When you have people like Ashlee Simpson going, maybe to do Broadway and yet she can't sing her way out of a paperbag and Paris in the front row of the VMA's who now has an album, then you know were really getting desperate. The music business has really gone down hill since the first MTV Music Awards, we don't have entertainers now, we have wannabe entertainers who get awards from the Teen Sect. Pure Crap, time for MTV to stop the award shows, Gangster VMA, Teach you kid to dress cool Mama.

A lot of racist comments. "Gangsta VMA's"????? I thought they were a lot more rock groups this year and that was the only thing I liked about the show. This year showed alot more diversity. The show sucked all together though. You don't have to blame the "Gansta's" for it. Blame MTV!!!
