It was a big night for music, but an even bigger night for Brooklyn as the 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards took over the Barclays Center Sunday.
British band One Direction was just one of the many performers making an appearance at the star-studded bash.
It was the first awards show ever held in Brooklyn.
Lady Gaga opened the show with her new single "Applause," and managed to change costumes four times during the performance.
It was her first time back on stage since undergoing hip surgery.
Justin Timberlake joined his former N'Sync bandmates for a reunion.
Timberlake won the top moonman prize of Video of the Year for "Mirrors."
He also picked up the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement, and thanked N'Sync for his success.
NY1's parent company, Time Warner Cable, was a sponsor for the show.
