Highlights of the show included a surprise appearance by Michael Jackson at the end of *NSYNC's performance and a controversial performance from Britney Spears, in which she danced to "I'm a Slave 4 U", while utilizing a host of live animals, including a large albino snake draped over her shoulders. Macy Gray wore a dress with a promotional message, instructing viewers to buy her new album. Andy Dick portrayed a fictional cousin of Christina Aguilera, Daphne Aguilera, who, in a skit, "attacked" Aguilera in the audience. The show also featured memorials for Aaliyah and Joey Ramone. Many of the night's winners dedicated awards to the two fallen musicians over the course of the telecast.
