Until then, let's kick back and revisit last year's show. So to say that J.Lo came to slay (and is here to stay) would be an understatement.
Of course, the VMAs have always been about "moments" as much as awards themselves, and, as was the case past year, these didn't offer a flashpoint like Miley Cyrus twerking or Kanye West barging into a Taylor Swift speech with the immortal words, "I'ma let you finish". Instead, the entire internet seems to be tuning into MTV for Lopez, and Lopez only.
There was one posthumous victor: Avicii, who died in April, won for best dance for "Lonely Together" alongside Rita Ora.
"I grew up on MTV and this is really like a tremendous honor for me".
Priyanka Chopra to become 'Mrs. Nick Jonas'
First I'm blessed with an incredible future brother-in-law, and now such an handsome , inside and out, future sister-in-law". Anusha Dandekar, who is a close friend to Priyanka, said the couple makes "love look so easy, lovely and special".
The biggest victor of the night was Childish Gambino, the music stage name of actor Donald Glover, who came away with three for his hard-hitting video "This Is America" about black identity and police brutality. The answer is nearly certainly no, unless by "iconic music video artist" you mean "artist whose music videos aired on television often enough when I was in high school that I vaguely remember them now".
Lopez ended her speech, thanking her fans who have "touched" her "heart" and "soul" and have become apart of her. She may be Jenny from the block, but she's not afraid to get sentimental once in a while.
Cardi said she's been blessed with fans "that you can't buy", looking into the camera and shouting an expletive. "I'm the empress-the liberals voted for me", she said with her signature cackle. We're like mirror images of each other. "The universe is infinite and so is what we can accomplish together with love and trust and understanding".
