Year: 2003

This year's VMA show didn't open up with a bang, but with a kiss. Alleged archrivals Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera joined forces to honor one of their mutual heroes, Madonna. These two princesses of pop, each wearing sexy, lace wedding gowns, paid tribute to Madonna's sexy 1984 VMA performance with a cover of “Like a Virgin." And as if the inaugural duet between Britney and Christina wasn't enough to grab some headlines, business picked up when Madonna herself joined in on the action.

Dressed as a groom, the Queen of Pop exchanged seductive stares with her successors. Then, from out of nowhere, the stars aligned and something magical happened. On live TV, Madonna kissed both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. We think that for the 10-year anniversary they should turn it up a notch and invite Katy Perry to the party.
