Taylor Swift and Rihanna both won two categories each and Lady Gaga took home 3 gongs, but the best surprise of the night came from Britney Spears who burst onto the stage for a dazzling performance of tracks, which included 'I'm A Slave 4 U', a live collaboration of 'S&M' with Rihanna and another pairing with Nicki Minaj on their remix of 'Till The World Ends'.
