MTV has FINALLY uploaded an untagged version of the 2003 VMA opener, which featured Britney, Christina, Madonna and Missy Elliott (you know... THAT one). What's newsworthy is that the version they have uploaded includes the entire Christina kiss portion, which was edited out during the original broadcast for a longer reaction shot of Justin Timberlake reacting to his ex kissing Madonna.
They (annoyingly) cropped the version on Youtube to be Widescreen, but the untouched full frame version is available on the MTV Facebook page.
This isn't the first vintage VMA upload they have made recently! Here are some more recently uploaded classics:
