1984: The MTV Video Music Awards are held for the first time. During the ceremony at New York City's Radio City Music Hall, Madonna performs her iconic hit "Like a Virgin" wearing a combination bustier/wedding gown. Bette Midler and Dan Aykroyd co-hosted the show. Herbie Hancock was the night's biggest winner, taking home five awards, followed by Michael Jackson, who won three. The night's main award, Video of the Year, though, went to The Cars for "You Might Think."
