Live at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards: Jay-Z performs "Empire State Of Mind" with Alicia Keys.

Hellova night for the Roc Boys.
Taylor Swift stands dumbfounded as Kanye West crashes her big moment during the MTV Music Video Awards by declaring that Beyonce should have bested her in the female video award category.
Singer Kanye West stole the microphone away from Taylor Swift -- taking her thunder with it -- as she accepted her award for best female video.
The 19-year-old was giddy when she won, saying: "I always wondered what it would be like to maybe win one of these someday, but never actually thought it would happen." Even in her wildest dreams, she probably didn't conjure up the next unfortunate event.
West jumped on stage, took the microphone and protested that Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video should have taken the prize, according to Entertainment Weekly.
"Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time," he said, as a shocked Beyonce looked on and the crowd began to boo West.
