True to recent controversial form, Miley Cyrus appeared to light a rolled-up joint on-stage while accepting the Best Video award for the naked-swinging hammer-licking “Wrecking Ball”.

The former Disney star opened the show with “We Can’t Stop”, accompanied by a latex-clad dwarf who spanked her as she twerked.

Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg/Lion, The Killers and Kings of Leon all performed, with Swedish pair Icona Pop closing the event with “I Love It”.
