EMA 2010: The Top Performance Looks

What's an MTV awards show without the music? And what's a performance without a killer stage outfit? From Ke$ha's body paint to Rihanna's flowers to Jared Leto's white pants, let's take a look at the top performance outfits from the EMA.

KE$HA

Ke$ha busted out her inner animal for her EMA performance, painting animal stripes all over her body in neon colors. She also wore pink strands in her hair, and a green bodysuit with mesh fabric pasted all over it, green socks, and combat boots. Even better, when the black lights went on during her song, her look lit up, too! Overall, it was wild and crazy, just like Ke$ha.

RIHANNA

Rihanna mixed funky and sweet with her performance outfit. She kept it funky with black combat boots, and also sweet with a white dress with flowers all over her skirt. (Quite the voluminous skirt, right?!) But what we love most about this look is her tiara — how diva of her?!

MILEY CYRUS

Like Ke$ha and Rihanna, Miley Cyrus also wore lace-up boots. But the comparisons stop there. Miley pulled off a crystal-encrusted nude bodysuit and nude fishnets for her EMA performance, and the extra rhinestones really made her sparkle on stage. Overall, it was a little too up-close-and-personal for our liking, but it's Miley, so we're starting to get used to this kind of fashion from her.

SHAKIRA

It wouldn't be a Shakira performance without some belly dancing in it, which is why we love what the 33-year-old wore for her EMA performance. The triangle bikini top reminded us of the outfit she wore in her "Loca" video, and the fringe pants showed off her movement so well.

KATY PERRY

We've seen Katy Perry in latex, tutus, and bedazzled bodysuits, but for the EMA last night, she did something new for her by wearing a white one-piece bodysuit with orange, red, and blue flames covering her torso. It was sparkly, which is totally Katy, and we're happy to see her have fun without having to wear Daisy Dukes everywhere. Plus, her sparkly headband was a great final touch.

B.O.B AND HAYLEY WILLIAMS

B.o.B. and Hayley Williams definitely had the best streetwear of the entire night when they performed "Airplanes" at the EMA. Hayley wore a jacket by Adidas, and her white pants had wings on them (cool!). Then, B.o.B. wore a puffy vest with some plaid in it and a pair of Adidas sneakers on his feet with three tongues. His sneakers matched her jacket, so it looks like they could've coordinated ... though, we can't be sure.

KANYE WEST AND JARED LETO

We were shocked when we saw Kanye West step out in a T-shirt and pants for his performance with 30 Seconds to Mars, considering he's a huge fan of fashion and custom-made suits. However, he still looked "together" and it was nice to see him relish in casual, relaxed style again. As for Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars, he brought back his all-white outfit, which we saw a few weeks ago. The white jacket and white pants with black zippers is quite a combination that works, which is probably why he likes to repeat it often!
