Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello Cuddled All Night Long

The pair certainly got cozy onstage when they performed “Señorita” together, but the PDA only continued as they couldn’t keep their hands off each other while in the audience.

Lizzo Performed with a Giant, Inflatable Butt as a Backdrop

Run — don’t walk! — to go watch Lizzo’s performance of “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell.”
                        There were iconic costumes! A yellow body suit that made Lizzo look like the sun! An inflatable butt! Backup dancers ripping wigs off and swinging them around with reckless abandon! It was pure joy from start to finish.

John Travolta Tried to Give the Moon Person to the Wrong Taylor Swift

While presenting the award for Video of the Year to Swift and the cast of her “You Need to Calm Down” music video, Travolta appeared to make a pretty iconic mixup, seemingly trying to had the trophy to Jade Jolie, the drag queen who plays Swift in the video. That’s a pretty huge compliment, if you look at the bright side!

Miley Cyrus Performed ‘Slide Away’ for the First Time Since Her Split

Cyrus took the stage to sing “Slide Away,” a song many assume to be about her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. The performance comes just a few days after Hemsworth officially filed for divorce. 
                        Backstage, Cyrus was seen with Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex-wife who is tangled up in the breakup rumors. Cyrus was seen kissing Carter just days after announcing her separation.

Alyson Stoner Returned 17 Years Later to Reprise her Role as the Star of Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’

The legendary Missy Elliot put on a performance filled with iconic moments from her video music career ahead of receiving the coveted Video Vanguard Award. Fans, like Halsey and Gigi Hadid, got out of their seats to dance as Elliot rapped to a medley of her hits, including “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lose Control.” Then, as an added surprise, Elliot brought out dancer Stoner, who appeared in the original 2002 “Work It” video, to revive her role as the dancer who stole the spotlight almost two decades ago.

Normani Absolutely Crushed Her ‘Motivation’ Debut Performance

2019 has become the singer’s breakout year, following the release of the viral video for her smash hit “Motivation.” Normani’s highly anticipated performance went off with a bang, as she appeared on stage sitting on top of a basketball hoop in between her dancers who twerked on chain link fences. She also brought other memorable moments from her video to the stage, such as the high-energy choreography, the 2000s-inspired looks and her now-famous move where she makes going from a headstand to landing smoothly into a split look easy.

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards Are Coming: Watch the First Teaser

0

MTV is unleashing its first promo for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards today (July 20) on Billboard with a celestial video that pays homage to the award show’s coveted Moonman trophies.

In a nod to the astronaut figure and the pioneering spirit it represents, the otherworldly teaser centers on a set of musicians and dancers as they plant an MTV flag on the moon. Don’t blink, or you might miss iconic moments from previous VMA shows as they float in outer space, like the wedding dress Madonnawore in her 1984 performance of «Like a Virgin» and the snake Britney Spearswielded while singing «I’m A Slave 4 U» onstage in 2001.

All this is sound-tracked by a futuristic cover of «Video Killed The Radio Star,» the Buggles’ recording that became MTV’s first-aired music video in 1981. The stellar (no pun intended) visual is directed by Floria Sigismondi, who has worked on music videos for the likes of Rihanna and David Bowie.

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from The Forum in Inglewood, CA, on Sunday, Aug. 27.
