The MTV VMAs Looked So Different Just 15 Years Ago - See Lots of Photos!

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards are happening this weekend and this will be the first major awards show to host a live event amid the pandemic.

We’re taking a look back at what the show looked like 15 years ago when the event was hosted in Miami back in 2005.

Just to give you an idea of what was happening in entertainment back then – Destiny’s Child was still together, Fergie was still performing with the Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna was only given a performance slot during the pre-show, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were still married, and Green Day was the big winner of the night.

The 2005 show was hosted by Diddy and some of the other stars in attendance included Beyonce, Jay-Z, Gwen Stefani, Eva Longoria, Ricky Martin, Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and then girlfriend Jessica White, Hilary Duff and then boyfriend Joel Madden.

The event took place just one day before Hurricane Katrina hit land in the United States and some of the pre-show events had to be cancelled due to the weather.
