Kanye's new "Love Lockdown" Performance and VMA Highlights

Mister showman himself, Kanye West, closed out the 2008 MTV VMA show last night with the debut of his new track "Love Lockdown." I don't know where this dude keeps coming up with this stuff, but it's pretty legit... The track is pretty much all singing over this kinda ambient melody and crazy periodic Asian drum line. Definitely one of the best (and few) good performances at the show- The other ones worth mentioning were Lil Wayne's medley, Rihanna's performances, Kid Rock's, and The Ting Tings (at the afterparty). OH YEAH!, and HOW could I for forget my FAVORITE personal moment of the entire evening?! WE SHARED A TRAM WITH SLASH ON THE WAY TO THE SHOW! YES! Here are a few photos and performance clips from the night:
