MTV highlighted 2012's best names in music on Thursday, September 6th, at the Video Music Awards with British pop-sensation, One Direction, taking home the coveted Best New Artist award. 1D's, Niall Horan (17), received quite the congratulations from Ms. Katy Perry (27), with an on-stage kiss. Other winners included Drake, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown and tons more. Rihanna won the biggest award of the night - Video of the Year but seemed un-impressed as she brushed her shoulders off once announced.

Along with the music, the VMAs features some of the hottest fashions, but we set out to find what the guys decide to wear underneath their clothes on the big day: boxers or briefs? It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it!
