The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards kicked off with a 'Bang Bang' trio of superstars including Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande.

Grande opened the 2014 MTV VMAs show with an "out of this world" performance of 'Break Free.' The 'Problem' singer appeared in a spaceship in the middle of the stage dressed in a sequin dress and immediately broke into her new single co-produced by Zedd.

She was then followed by Minaj, who appeared on stage in a jungle-like setup and dress for her new single 'Anaconda.' Despite the mishap that happened during the rehearsals with a snake bite, Minaj's performance went off without a noticeable hitch as she and her dancers got down to twerk for their booty-licious hit.

We then saw Jessie J belt out the opening verse of 'Bang Bang' as the crowd became even more electrified to see the three female stars assemble together for their new song.

It was a roaring start to set the tone for the evening! Watch it in the video above.
