It was bare skin, hot rockers and energy galore at tonight's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York City.

Tongues were wagging as the models strutted a gold glitter runway in everything from jungle-themed underwear to skimpy, barely there sportswear.

In the front row for the lingerie extravaganza? Maxwell, Russell Simmons, Debbie Harry, Malin Akerman, Adam Levine, Vin Diesel and Caleb Followill

See just how rowdy things got during the event...

Kicking off the runway ruckus was an announcement that all cell phones and cameras could not be used. "Why would you be looking at them anyway during this?" asked the announcer.

Apparently this did not apply to Simmons, who texted throughout the entire show, with brief pauses to look up and snap pictures of the babes working the catwalk, which featured Angels Adriana Lima, Chanel Iman and Karolina Kurkova.

A performance by Katy Perry, whose body looked as slammin' as the models (for real) had the audience on their feet. 

Akon was up next, and he sang as the girls strutted past and flirted with him. But he had one very unusual fan that was more vocal than anyone—a sunglass clad Diesel, who stood up and manically fist-pumped (Jersey Shore-style) throughout the number and screamed "Aaaaaakonnnnn!" over and over.

Apparently the two are friends, with Akon showing Diesel some love postshow backstage. The two hugged it out and laughed while Diesel once again screamed his name. 

When we asked what was up with the crazy dancing, Diesel told us he was "just showing love."

"The wonderful thing about being in my position is that you can shamelessly show love, Give it up for everybody else," he said. "You don't have to be cool."

Obviously not.

His only competition in the attention-grabbing department (besides the girls on display) was Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who screamed at the top of his lungs and stood up to clap and whistle every time his smokin'-hot blond Russian model gal-pal Anne Vyalitsyna strutted her booty past him. (It was adorable though.)

And it clearly worked—she blew him a kiss form the runway more than once.

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill showed up to support his brunette bombshell fiancée Lily Aldridge, possibly the hottest babe of the bunch, if that's even possible. 

When we asked him if his gal rocks the Angel looks in the bedroom, he smiled and told us, "Uh, yeah." His favorite look? "The country one," he told us. We'd have guessed that.

Outside, things got a bit wild before the show, with bomb-sniffing dogs checking out the photogs' bags and the backstage area before the show, and people near the entrance offering to pay cash to people on line for tickets to get in. 

The afterparty at Lavo drew Gerard Butler, Lukas Haas, Maxwell, a lovable Followill and Aldridge, who cuddled in a corner together, and models by the dozen.

The show airs as a special on CBS Nov. 30 at 10 p.m.
