8. A controversial performance of "Same Love" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
Why It Would Be Amazing: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have a chance to make VMA history on Sunday night with whatever they choose to do during their performance of "Same Love." But we hope that they really push the boundaries with their performance and do something that gets people talking about gay rights and gay marriage long after the 2013 VMAs are over.
