Location: New York, NY
It's official music junkies, the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards will soon be upon us, and if you're already dying to know
more about the show, we've got some news for you! The 2016 MTV VMAs will air live on Sunday, August 28th from
Madison Square Garden in New York City, making it the first time the show has ever graced the MSG stage in its 33-year
But if you're already going crazy from anticipation, you can always relive the moments from the 2015
MTV Video Music Awards, which was definitely not short on show-stopping appearances and out of this world performances!
Our hostess-with-the-mostess Miley Cyrus opened the VMAs in eye-popping
fashion ( literally), rocking everything from rainbow sequined jumpsuits
and mile-long wigs. While the VMAs had its fair share of crazy (*cough* SO MUCH BEEF *cough*), the best moments were the insanely good performances and spectacular acceptance speeches. Nicki Minaj
KILLED IT during her mash-up of "Trini Dem Girls/The Night Is
Still Young," along with her super surprise guest Taylor Swift (squee!), followed by critically acclaimed singer-songwriter
and R&B superstar The Weeknd making his VMA debut with the first-ever
televised performance of his hit single "I Can't Feel My Face." But, the night quickly became dominated by the ~ladiez~, when
Taylor Swift scooped
up the Best Female Video for "Blank Space," and Tori Kelly absolutely shut the Microsoft Theater DOWN when she sang "Should've Been Us." Justin Bieber
made his epic return to the VMA stage with a high-flying performance of "Where Are Ü Now/What Do You Mean?", and Kanye West
was also honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, delivering one of the
most memorable VMA acceptance speeches of all time.
The VMA audience was treated to all-out rock/rap insanity when Twenty One Pilots and A$AP Rocky took
the stage, and once they were done, the biggest award of the night, Video Of The Year, went
to Taylor Swift for "Bad Blood." Just when the crowd thought the show was over, host Miley surprised EVERYONE with a candy-colored, drag queen filled finale of
her new song, "Dooo It." Can you even?!
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone, but you can re-live the whole thing right
here. See ya next year!
