2001 has been a great year for the music and entertainment channel MTV New seasons of The Real Word and Road Rules various concerts and specials and the Movie Awards have all been big highlights of this year so far The channel also celebrated its 20th Anniversary this past August However arguably the biggest event of them all is the Video Music Awards Known for its tendency to push the envelope when it comes to what can and cant be shown on cable television the VMAs are more about the show than the awards This year was no exception Live from the Metropolitan Opera House the show opened with host Jamie Foxx performing a very fitting opera rendition of several of this past years most popular songs Then he quickly shifted gears into a monologue insulting several celebrities that were present at the awards contrary to earlier reports that he wouldnt do so Thankfully Will Ferrell of Saturday Night Live fame ran onto the stage in the middle of Foxxs act climbing up a prop on stage while shouting Im raging This was a homage to a similar act performed by the bassist of the band Rage Against the Machine from last years VMAs and forced MTV to cut to a commercial break Thus began a constant stream of performances and awards An interesting theme to the VMAs this year was the jungle Before the nominees for each award were named small nature documentary clips were shown however in true MTV fashion most of them were rather provocative Britney Spears lip-synching performance also featured a zoo-full of caged animals behind her not to mention a snake around her neck Another moment of the VMAs that cannot be overlooked is the tribute to Aaliyah Several artists including Janet Jackson and Missy Elliot said a few words Aaliyahs brother also made a rather moving speech The moment wouldve been perfect had Janet Jackson
