Demi Lovato had a pretty exciting night.

As soon as she arrived to walk the red carpet, Lovato wasted no time absolutely killing it at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The pop superstar, 23, oozed confidence as she posed for pictures in a skintight mini dress with a plunging neckline and slicked back hair. And she took up it up a notch when she took the stage for her first VMA performance of her hit single Cool for the Summer with surprise guest Iggy Azalea, basically turning the entire award ceremony into a giant pool party.

Yet somehow she still left everyone wanting more. Well luckily for all us, Lovato took over PEOPLE s Twitter to share some behind-the-scenes pictures of her big night.

She started the night deciding on the perfect hair and makeup for the red carpet.

After getting glammed up, she hit the stage for a quick sound check before her epic performance.

Next came an up close look as the amazingness that was her dress.

The night ended with a picture from her performance.
