Today, friends, the voting period for our three Most Iconic VMA Moments categories comes to an end. But do not feel sad, for there's still one big moment left to savor. Give your voting fingers a rest, do a little jig down the red carpet of your mind, enter the auditorium, take your seat in the font row, and enjoy the drama-filled festivities after the jump.

For the last three weeks, you've voted for your favorite VMA performances, fashions, and scandals. Today, we are pleased to announce winners as decided by your enthusiastic voting.  I will be your host for the evening, which means I am in charge, which means we're getting this show under way right now because I said so.

First up, the award for Most Iconic Performance. The nominees are:

    I don't like to say Britney's the QUEEN, because I respect Madonna. But the title "Princess of Pop" is obviously because the idea that after Madonna, the one that could have the throne is Britney. And Britney is the Queen of VMAs. For the guy that said that X-Factor flopped because Britney, I don't think so... X-Factor USA was a flop to begin with, and no one can save it... the talent show winning in USA is The Voice, and it's not because Xtina but for all the panel and because it's fresh... Idol and X Factor are just the same. Britney gave highest ratings to Glee, Ellen show and more... so she still relevant and loved for the most of the people.

    Britney is the queen! She has delivered the 2 most iconic VMA performances of all time - Oops I did it again & I'm a slave for you. No one has been able to top these two performances so far!

    I'm not gonna say she is the Queen like other fan bases say abut her "idol" but brit definitely deserves it, she changed pop culture back in the 1998's and earlys 2000's and she still being successful.
