​11 memorable moments from past MuchMusic Video Awards

Unconventional, unstuffy and unscripted, the MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA) are one of the most entertaining (and wholly Canadian) awards shows of the summer season.

As we gear up for the 2014 MMVAs, which takes place this Sunday, June 15, we look back at some of the most memorable moments from past shows.
