MTV's 23rd annual celebration of the glorious music video was a wild and wonderful event, and we're so glad TV.com was there! Performances by Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, T.I., Panic! At the Disco, Ludacris, and The Killers blew our collective mind, and Jack White's "other band," The Raconteurs, provided an uber-hip live soundtrack for the entire event. Fabulous host Jack Black and a score of other celebs were on hand for the festivities, and TV.com's Stephanie Quay was right in the middle of it all. Check out our video interviews right here!
