StreeXB Global Talent SearchLet’s take you back in time to the year 2000 when the VMA’s was perfect.

This Sunday, you will expect racy outfits and a lot of crop tops.

Also expect skin-tight or “barely there” costumes when artists come to perform on stage.

Let’s take it back to a time where all this was just starting but remains our favorite moment in music.

The 2000s brought so many great artists and tracks that are the throwback music we have today. The VMA’s at this time was one on the main events that we looked forward to. The millennium brought out the best artists who inspired the original scantily-clad costumes of today. Back then, those costumes were the best. Nothing was off-limits in the 2000s and we really miss it. Since we can’t actually hop in a time machine, we’ll just bring the memories to you.

Go through the whole article to throw it back to the 2000s.

With just a week to go until MTV’s 2015 Video Music Awards, there’s no better way to celebrate than by worrying about Y2k, breaking out the trucker hats, and turning back the clock to the year 2000.

Eminem’s quest to find “The Real Slim Shady”

In one of the most memorable VMA moments in history, Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford took his band’s name to heart and climbed the stage to protest Limp Bizkit winning Best Rock Video for “Break Stuff.”

Britney Spears doing it again, Fedora, nude sequined get-up and all, the pop princess put on an epic performance of “Oops!…I Did It Again,” remixing the jam with The Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”




The VMAs didn’t forget about Dre - Dr. Dre beat out DMX, Eve, Jay Z, and his pal Eminem to nab the high honor of accepting his Moonman from the unlikely pairing of Moby and Pink.

The 17th annual VMAs brought millennium favorites Britney Spears, her then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, Aaliyah, Blink-182, and Destiny’s Child to New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

Ahead, the 15 moments that made the show unforgettable.
