Nicki Minaj gets kicked in the bass by 'Jersey Shore'

Good thing MTV took the time to pre-record a spot of the "Jersey Shore" cast prognosticating the winners in a few of the evening's categories. Ronnie kicked off the crass by making a quip about finally knowing Adele is a female since she's nominated for best female video. Then Snooki scored the punchline of the clip by reworking Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" (read: BASE) as "Super Bass" (as in rhymes with "no class"). -- Liz Kelly Nelson, Zap2it Getty Images
