According to VMA executive producer Garrett English, the network is letting Miley do what she wants with the Video Music Awards. He said, "Obviously there are standards and various other things that were always a part of it, but no, [no rules] ... It never comes from a place of trying to limit the range, it's always coming from a place of trying to open up the full palate."

"Miley has been fantastic," English continued. "It was sort of a logical extension of conversations that we're happening. Both her camp and ours were immediately excited by it."

In the spirit of hoping for the most spectacular awards show in VMA history, here are some of the best moments that Miley will have to top this year.

Britney Spears Dances With a Python (2001)
During her performance of "I'm a Slave 4 U," Brit Brit slithered on stage with her reptile friend.

And basically sets the standard. Writing on stage in a wedding dress, singing about being touched for the very first time? Yup, that'll do it.

Miley Cyrus Twerks on Robin Thicke (2013)
Speaking of Miley ... this "Blurred Lines" performance not only distanced her from her Hannah Montana character, it also seemed to be the downfall of Mr. Thicke's marriage to Paula Patton. Whoops.

And really, can you blame her?

It's one thing to love bacon, but another entirely to wear it.

Michael Jackson and Lisa Kiss (1994)
They were married less than two years, but this awkward meeting of the mouths will be seared on our brains forever.

Britney Spears Strips (2000)
Just how many of these moments include Britney Spears anyway?

Queen Bey Announces She's Pregnant (2011)
We first learned of the coming of Blue Ivy when Beyonce rubbed her barely-there bump. Is it too much to ask for a sibling announcement this year?
