The MTV Video Music Awards have always brought some of the most controversial and unforgettable moments onstage, and this year’s show was no exception – Britney Spears making a comeback after nearly a decade, Drake honouring Rihanna with the coveted Vanguard Award (and a kiss), Kanye West giving a surprise video premiere, and of course, Beyoncé stealing the show by performing basically her entire “Lemonade” album. So as expected, Twitter has also been extra busy during the awards show.

Here are some of the most hilarious Internet memes and Twitter reactions during the VMAs.

On Britney’s comeback to the VMA stage:
