The 2000 show is best remembered for Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine climbing a piece of set scaffolding and refusing to come down after his band lost the award for Best Rock Video to Limp Bizkit. The show went to commercial while security removed Commerford, who was later arrested and forced to spend a night in jail.

Britney Spears performed her hit single "Oops!...I Did It Again" which went on to become one of the VMA's most iconic and controversial performances. However, she received some criticism over her skin-colored performance attire. 'N Sync also performed their hit single "Bye Bye Bye". Bizkit vocalist Fred Durst later joined Christina Aguilera onstage as a surprise guest during her performance of "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)".

For the second year in a row DMX did not show up for his scheduled performance; as a result, Nelly's performance, originally scheduled for the pre-show, was promoted to the main event. Other highlights included Eminem performing amidst an army of "Slim Shady" lookalikes and a humorous montage dedicated to past VMA winners who had failed to repeat their previous success.

This was Aaliyah's last appearance at the VMA awards before her death a year later in August 2001 in a plane crash in the Bahamas. She won her two and only VMA awards that night, for Best Female Video and Best Video from a Film for "Try Again".
