Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora rehearse for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum in Inglewood, California on August 21, 2014.

Every year the MTV VMAs roll out an A-list parade of performers to move the crowd while the network doles out Moonman Awards. But let's be honest: All VMA performances are not created equal. While 2013 boasted an 'N Sync reunion and the Twerk Heard Around the World, no one's still talking about 2013 VMA sets from top-notch talent like Drake or Bruno Mars.

So with the VMAs coming up this Sunday, we're wondering whose 2014 VMA performance will blow up the Internet and keep everyone talking on Monday?

Will it be Beyonce's set after she claims the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, or Taylor Swift's first performance since dropping her pure pop confection "Shake It Off"?

Of course, it could be Nicki -- after all, she's taking the stage for three separate performances. Minaj is doing "Anaconda" solo, "She Came To Give It To You" with Usher, and "Bang Bang" with fellow divas Jessie J and Ariana Grande.

Speaking of Grande, Billboard's cover girl will perform her Hot Dance/Electronic chart No. 1 "Break Free" with Zedd at the VMAs, which is sure to bring as much energy to the Forum as Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora when they team up to deliver "Black Widow."

Or will Sam Smith's soul throwback "Stay With Me" -- its quiet beauty serving as a stark contrast to the night's club-ready tracks -- steal the show on Sunday?

Then again, rock could rule this year: Maroon 5 is slated to perform "Maps" while 5 Seconds of Summer will make their first VMA performance this year.

Why do you think? Which performances are people still going to be talking about throughout the week? Vote below and tell us which VMA performance you're most excited for.
