Green Day - Alicia Keys, Pink & Green Day Wow With Mtv Vmas Sets

Green Day, Alicia Keys and Pink were among the stars who wowed viewers with their performances at the Mtv Video Music Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday (06Sep12).
Green Day invited fans to crowd around them onstage as they rocked out to their new single Let Yourself Go at the Staples Center.
It marked the punk trio's first appearance since scrapping a concert in Italy on Sunday (02Sep12) after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong was hospitalised with influenza and dehydration.
Keys debuted her new track Girl on Fire, which featured a rap from Vma winner Nicki Minaj and some gymnastics from Team Usa Olympics star Gabby Douglas, who was namechecked in the song.
Pink also thrilled with a high-energy, acrobatic performance of her new hit Blow Me (One Last Kiss), taking off into the rafters while sitting on a pair of massive inflatable lips.
The show opened with a performance from Rihanna and also featured sets from multiple Moonman winners One Direction, Frank Ocean and rapper Lil Wayne, who closed his spot with 2Chainz by diving into the audience.
Taylor Swift wrapped up the ceremony with her new single We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and also stagedived into the front rows.
