Here’s A Recap Of What Happened In The VMAs In Case You Missed It

The MTV Video Music Awards is one of the most anticipated awards night in the music industry. This year’s MTV VMAs was hosted by Katy Perry, awarding our favorite artists with the most precious statue of a man in a spacesuit.

Some of the highlights during the night were Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” music video premiere, Lil Uzi Vert-Ed Sheeran performance, and Kendrick Lamar who has the most number of nominations (eight). Despite Taylor Swift’s absence in the VMAs, she managed to add another award to her long list of wins (Best Collaboration for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever Fifty Shades Darker” with Zayn Malik).

Some of the performers during the awards night were Kendrick Lamar, host Katy Perry, the Fifth Harmony, Ed Sheeran, Jared Leto, and Miley Cyrus.

Yeah, we need a moment too. @kendricklamar just literally lit up the #VMA stage ???
