What you didn't see at the VMA's
- 7:42 p.m. Rapper Method Man is kicked off of the red carpet by security moments before Fergie's pre-show "London Bridge" performance. They needed to clear the area and he didn't listen.
- 8:25 p.m. After the Black Eyed Peas win for best hip-hop video, presenter Ciara gives Fergie a huge hug on the side of the stage.
- 8:56 p.m. While the monitors show the nominees for best dance video, a raspy sounding Jessica Simpson waves and blows kisses to fans in the orchestra pit.
- 9:12 p.m. A machine randomly begins emitting fog during a commercial break – apparently a mistake.
- 9:17 p.m. Nick Lachey and Nicole Richie present the best pop video award. As the nominees are being announced, they dance playfully together, with Richie doing a shimmy-booty dance.
- 9:27 p.m. Off-camera, a crew member hands presenter Snoop Dogg a moon man. He sets the statuette down next to him and takes a swig of his liquor, which he then brings with him on stage.
- 9:34 p.m. After Beyonce's performance, Pharrell Williams stands up almost immediately to give her a standing ovation. Most of the other celebs soon follow suit, as Beyonce's proud boyfriend Jay-Z beams.
- 9:37 p.m. During a commercial break, the announcer says over the loudspeaker, "Has anyone seen Diddy? He's supposed to be backstage."
- 9:39 p.m. Diddy is found and goes on.
- 9:50 p.m. Awkward moment alert: Backstage in the green room, Paris Hilton and sister Nicky walk in as Hilton's archrival Nicole Richie chats with new boyfriend Brody Jenner, who was attached to her hand all night.
- 9:53 p.m. Richie and Jenner leave the room.
- 10:21 p.m Beyonce wins best R&B video. Jay-Z puts his arm around her waist to help her stand up. Someone else then escorts her to the stage.
- 10:30 p.m. During the tribute to music-video director Hype Williams, Jay-Z gleefully shouts, "Yeah Hype! Yeah baby!"
