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.)

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.
