The Hills were alive with the sound of music at the 2007 MTV VMAs.

Ten years ago, reality stars Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port walked the red carpet together at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. "I love the fact that it's in Vegas," Patridge told MTV News reporter Suchin Pak. "It's fun. There are people all around. It's crazy!"

"It's so hard getting around everywhere," Port added. "It's so packed!"

Long before she launched her popular fashion line at Kohl's, Conrad modeled a dress of her own design. "For red carpets, I've been doing one of a kind pieces," she revealed. "Just for fun!"

The reality stars were on hand to promote the third season of The Hills—which explains why Heidi Montag was M.I.A. "There's still drama, like always," Patridge said. "[Fans] love it, so that's all that matters." But Conrad teased there might be "some making up" that season, too.

During the show, the girls posed for a photo backstage with co-star Lo Bosworth.

Conrad, Patridge and Port also appeared onstage to present the award for Male Artist of the Year to Justin Timberlake, who beat Akon, Robin Thicke, T.I. and Kanye West. During his acceptance speech, what "What Goes Around...Comes Around" singer dissed the network, saying, "Play more damn videos. I want to challenge MTV to play more videos." Um...Awkward!

Later that year, Conrad told Us Weekly meeting Timberlake was "the biggest letdown."

"I have always loved him, and he was a disappointment at the VMAs. Whitney and I presented him with an award. We were so excited, and he wouldn't even take the award from us. Then he went up to the microphone and insulted reality television on MTV. We were standing up there smiling, and I felt so stupid," she said. Years later, Conrad told the tabloid her childhood crush ended the moment Timberlake dissed her friends: "It was probably the end of my love for him."
