VMAs 2012: Rihanna
RiRi is set to take the stage at MTV's annual awards show.
When it comes to awards shows, there’s no better place to make a grand entrance than the MTV Video Music Awards.

Over the years, the VMA red carpet has seen its fair share of eye-popping arrivals — everything from yachts to monster trucks and, in the case of Ke$sha’s 2012 entrance, the DeLorean from Back to the Future. (Yep.)

Which celeb will make the grandest entrance this year?

With a lineup that includes Rihanna, Frank Ocean and Miley Cyrus, it could be anyone’s year to make a splash.

In preparation for the 2012 MTV VMAs, airing Thursday, Celebuzz is reliving the top 10 red carpet arrivals from past shows.

Among the highlights: Lady Gaga, who in 2009 showed up with — wait for it — Kermit the Frog; and Diddy, who arrived to the 2004 Miami show on a yacht alongside actor Bruce Willis.
