Flashback to the 2008 VMAs: A Throwback to the Glitz and Glam of Music’s Biggest Night

The 2008 Video Music Awards (VMAs) were quite an eventful affair and Keri Hilson’s outfit choice is a prime example of the craziness that went down. It’s definitely a style statement worth noting.

In 2008, everything seemed much simpler. Gone were the days of constant celebrity feuds and drama. Back then, it seemed like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus were the best of friends and often walked the red carpet together.

During the MTV event, Taylor Swift acted as a red carpet host and managed to change two different dresses. This move allowed her to showcase two unique looks during the night.

To add a touch of nostalgia, it’s worth mentioning that Taylor Swift was once romantically involved with the iconic Joe Jonas.

Speaking of the event, the Jonas Brothers attended while sporting their purity rings, which effectively served their purpose.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend made an appearance at the event and they’re definitely among our favorites.

Rihanna had also graced the event with her performance of popular tracks like “Disturbia”, “Seven Nation Army”, and “Live Your Life”. The audience was treated to her amazing talent on that night.

Back in 2008, before the release of the Twilight films, the cast members gathered to generate excitement for the soon-to-be iconic series. Even though the first movie wouldn’t hit theaters until two months later, stars like Frederick M. Brown and Dave Hogan were already on hand to build anticipation.

The famous cast members weren’t the only ones striking poses for the cameras. The ensemble from High School Musical, who were gearing up for the release of their third and last film, also made an appearance.

Britney Spears was the star of the night and came out on top by winning three awards at the VMAs. It was quite surprising as she had never won before, and it proved to be a successful comeback after receiving criticism the previous year for her performance of “Gimme More.”

Taylor was not exempt from the excitement as everyone eagerly sought to take a photo with the shining star of the evening, as evidenced by a plethora of requests.

The Jonas Brothers are a popular musical group, as evidenced by the numerous photographs of them taken by Kevin Mazur for WireImage.

Paris Hilton and Jeff Kravitz were in attendance.

It’s quite a nostalgic sight to see the couples who graced the event. Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn as well as Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were among them. Katy Perry was also in attendance with her then-partner, Travie McCoy.

Lindsay Lohan was spotted enjoying some quality time with her significant other, Samantha Ronson.

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson, who was carrying a baby bump, seemed to be enjoying each other’s company. The photo credit belongs to Kevin Mazur / WireImage.

It’s no surprise that our appearances change over time, but I was taken aback when I recently saw Ciara – I almost did a spit take with my coffee.

Solange appeared incredibly youthful, just like Jeffrey Mayer’s photo of her suggests.

Do you recall the popular reality show, The Hills? In case you missed it, here’s a delightful throwback photo of Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge, captured backstage.

Oh, but the party didn’t end there. The notable Jenner of that time, Brody, was also present.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were also present, according to Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic’s account.

Christina Aguilera opted for a monochromatic black ensemble, from head to toe, while attending an event and later on stage for her performances of “Genie in a Bottle” and “Keeps Gettin’ Better.”

Pink, with her signature hairstyle that seems to be a part of her from birth, appeared stunning on the red carpet. She later performed her popular song, “So What,” with great energy and enthusiasm.

We should definitely give a shoutout to Paramore for their awesome rendition of “Misery Business”. The energy they brought was truly unforgettable!

Kanye West’s hit song “Love Lockdown” was also part of the performance. This was captured by photographers Christina Radish from Redferns and Chris Polk from FilmMagic.

So, who dominated the awards night? It was none other than Britney Spears! She scored big wins for her music video “Piece of Me,” taking home trophies for Video of the Year, Best Female Video, and Best Pop Video.

The Pussycat Dolls were also awarded a moon man for their song “When I Grow Up” for the Best Dancing in a Video category at an event that Dave Hogan captured with his camera.

Hey, can you believe what a year it has been? But guess what, we have something to look forward to. The 2018 VMAs are going to be aired on Monday 20 August! Let’s watch and see how they compare.
