Remember when pink rode on her goddess lips swing at the 2012 MTV VMAs

Remember Pink's crazy lip-swing? Of course you do. Because she turned things WAY up at the 2012 MTV VMAs.

We probably don't have to tell you that the VMAs consistently turn the party up a notch each year! (If you haven't yet read about the best-ever VMA divas or seen this photo of Miley rehearsing with her VMA Twerk Team, you're making a significant life mistake.) Now, before the 2013 VMAs on Sunday, August 25 at 9 p.m., let's take a look back at our favorite females getting turned up at the 2012 VMAs!

When we say "favorite females," we're obviously referring to Demi Lovato and that time she demolished the 2012 VMA pre-show with a pyro-filled performance of "Give Your Heart A Break." And you know we didn't forget about Pink sailing through the air on a pair of lips while performing "Blow Me (One Last Kiss." Oh, and there's what we fondly refer to as "backflip-apalooza," aka Olympian Gabby Douglas back-flipping her way through Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire" performance. Wait, let's reflect on that a beat: asking a gold medal-winning Olympic athlete to calmly back-flip across the stage while you wail out the words to "Girl On Fire"? Way to do more, ladies!

So, there y'all have it! Just a few of our favorite female moments from last year. Might wanna step up that game, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus! I mean, FLYING THROUGH THE LITERAL AIR ON LIPS!! The only thing that might one-up Pink is if Katy rides an IRL lion onstage for her LIVE "Roar" VMA performance. #AnythingIsPossible
