Still recovering from the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards?

Following VMAs tradition, Sunday's live ceremony generated plenty of eyebrow-raising performances and moments, which in turn spurred hilarious reactions from the crowd, including celebrity nominees and fellow performers.

Check out 7 of the funniest reactions below:

7. Rita Ora looked less than impressed as she watched rapper Nicki Minaj twerk up a storm during a racy performance of her newest hit, "Anaconda."

At the ceremony, the British pop singer performed her duet "Black Widow" with friend and hip-hop star Iggy Azalea. Fans had speculated that Minaj had thrown shade at Azalea while making an acceptance speech at the 2014 BET Awards in June.

6. ... and none for you, Riff Raff. What is he, chopped liver? In her defense, Ariana Grande was likely too overwhelmed with excitement about her win for Best Pop Video as she shook Katy Perry's hand and brushed past the rapper, the pop star's date. The two arrived in Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake-inspired denim outfits.

5. Every one of Jennifer Lopez's reactions ...

4. Taylor Swift, as always, couldn't sit still during many of the performances...

3. Did Miley Cyrus throw shade at Swift? The twerking pop star was seen looking like this while the country-turned-pop star performed her new single, "Shake It Off." Fans have speculated that Cyrus' facial expression stemmed from Swift's reaction to Cyrus' controversial 2013 performance...

2. Cyrus was a lot more enthusiastic about Perry...

1. But the best reaction, hands down, was 2-year-old Blue Ivy Carter's—she couldn't help but dance while sitting in dad Jay-Z's lap while watching mom Beyoncé totally kill it on stage with a 16-minute medley performance.
