While Beyonce was honored with the Video Vanguard Award and Miley Cyrus took home the prestigious Video Of The Year award, it might have been Usher who was really having the best night ever.
During his live performance of his new single "She Came To Give It To You," Nicki Minaj, the song's featured vocalist, came out for her 25th appearance of the evening (approximately).

And that's when things got just a little more interesting for Usher. Namely, that's when Usher got a chance to serenade Nicki's butt, get it rubbed up against his arm, and apparently even slam his face into the side of it!
It was the kind of performance that could give a man a wild sort of confidence, cockiness and flair. The kind of flair that let him drop his mic-stand, but then catch it with the top of his foot like he's the cool musician in some '80s movie.
Usher couldn't even contain his happiness on the red carpet, hours before the show started. In fact, he was so excited, he had to smile in other people's photos without them knowing it, like when he photobombed Kim Kardashian.
So, good job Usher! Glad you had the best night ever.
