We've all seen the picture that went viral during the MTV Video Music Awards 2013. Will Smith and his family were captured by the audience cam during the show with very interesting reactions. Someone on Twitter managed to take a screenshot and post it, joking that those were their faces after watching Miley Cyrus' performance.

And no wonder people took it seriously, because Cyrus' time on stage was by far the most talked-about performance of the whole night. She twerked, stuck her tongue out, and stripped down to a flesh-colored bikini for a rendition of her summer hit "We Can't Stop" onstage in Brooklyn Aug. 25. The set was raunchy and likely left many questioning just who the former Disney starlet has become. Robin Thicke made a surprise appearance and both Miley and Robin performed his song "Blurred Lines," while the 20-year-old daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus groped Thicke in the most uncomfortable way possible.

However, the reaction we all wanted to be because of Miley Cyrus ended up being during Lady Gaga's opening number, "Applause," and it wasn't a reaction per se, but more like a funny coincidence. The Smiths weren't even too shocked by the 27-year-old pop star's scantily glad dance. Jaden's confused look was just some intense concentration. Willow's open mouth was caused by her gum chewing. What looked like a gasp was actually just a nose scratch.

Lady Gaga delivered one of her typical performances in terms of pushing the envelope. She had four wardrobe changes on stage, including wigs and makeup. Nevertheless, nothing seems to top her appearance at the 2009 VMA's where she did "Paparazzi" in a bloody performance that was even banned from YouTube. It seems like we might never get those days back. Although changing on stage and managing to keep singing and dancing was impressive, the only "shocking" factor of this performance was her shellfish bikini, that wasn't so scandalous anyways.

It seems like this year Miley took the crown for most awkward performance, but the celebrity audience at the award show wasn't very impressed. Look at Rihanna's face for example. She's saying "B**ch please, you're too late and overdoing it too much." And how about One Direction? They look like they're in a school show trying hard not to laugh at Miley after such a ridiculous performance. As for Drake ... he's just over it. He just wants to go home, take a shower and forget that musical number ever happened.
