Here's What The MTV VMAs Looked Like In 1996

Oh, man, this takes us back.

Ahead of this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, we’re taking a walk down memory lane. 

Let’s jump back 20 years. The year was 1996, and the show was held on Sept. 4 at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

To set the scene, recall that Dennis Miller returned for his second run as host, the Smashing Pumpkins took home the award for Best Video, Alanis Morissette was named Best New Artist, and the show marked Tupac Shakur’s last public appearance before he was shot on Sept. 7 and died on Sept. 13. 

Check out who performed at the show, and who made an appearance on the red carpet.
