Britney Spears has been a staple of many of the most memorable MTV Video Music Awards shows of all time, so without her in the crowd on Sunday night, somebody had to step in.

Thankfully, Katy Perry was on hand to pick up the denim torch.

Spears praised the pair's jeanius move on Twitter, gushing that Perry "looked amazing."!+You+looked+amazing+tonight+bb+;)
