VMAs 2011: All The Performances (PHOTOS)

In case you didn't realize, caught up in all the Beyonce baby excitement and trying to figure out why the cast of "Toy Story" attacked Nicki Minaj, there were a whole host of performances at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards.

Lady Gaga -- as her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone -- kicked off the night with a rambling speech about Gaga (meta!) and then rocked the piano for a moving version of "You and I." Soon after, Jay-Z and Kanye brought their "Watch the Throne" single "Otis" to the stage, American flag and Canadian tuxedo and all.

Later in the night, Adele moved the audience to tears with "Someone Like You," and Chris Brown busted moves -- on a trampoline! -- to a medley of songs he didn't write or sing.

Finally, Bruno Mars gave tribute to Amy Winehouse with a rousing big band performance, complete with pompadour coif and all.
