Find out which creators, comebacks, and breakthroughs took home prizes

This year, as every year, the 2021 VMAs honor the biggest and brightest stars pushing musical and visual boundaries and captivating audiences around the world. So many of those stars started out on a much, much smaller screen — for example, trending on TikTok. That's why MTV launched the first-ever Trending: VMAs, celebrating creators, creatives, comebacks, and what happens when they collide. The fun is streaming live from the MTV TikTok account today (September 10) beginning at 5 p.m. ET.
