BWW Asks: Was Justin Timberlake's Marathon Medley Best VMA Performance Ever?

At the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, the "President of Pop," Justin Timberlake was awarded the 2013 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Before accepting the award from his friend, and "History of Rap" collaborator Jimmy Fallon, JT treated the crowd to an Epic 17-minute medley of his biggest hits, highlighted by the reunion of one of the biggest boy bands of all-time, *N'sync.

So, that got me thinking. Was JT's super-medley the best VMA performance of all time?

If you are drawing a blank on some of the award show's other greatest moments, last week Billboard ranked the top-10, featuring the likes of Eminem, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Bon Jovi, Madonna, and the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson.

So, let me know what you think in the comments, or tweet me at @BWWMatt.
