Watch All The 2018 VMAs Performances Here! [J.Lo, Nicki, Ariana, Shawn & More]
The 2018 VMAs took place last night (August 20) at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The awards were opened by Cardi B with a welcoming speech and no performance (bit disappointed about this but it felt nice seeing her back in the spotlight after giving birth).
The controversy of the night was when Camila Cabello won “Artist of the Year” over Drake and “Video of the Year” for “Havana” over Childish Gambino's “This is America”. What the actual f*ck? Does Camila have a close friend in the Viacom board or what? I love her but she knows she didn't deserve those awards. I'm quite confident she became the most hated person in America last night.
As for the live performances, this year's VMAs saw the following artists hit the stage: Shawn Mendes, Bazzi, Logic, Panic! at the Disco, Jessie Reyez, Nicki Minaj, Hayley Kiyoko, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, PrettyMuch, Travis Scott, Juice Wrld, Maluma, Post Malone, 21 Savage and Aerosmith.
My favorites: Jennifer Lopez, who won the Vanguard Award, delivered an amazing medley performance of several of her hits, Ariana Grande delivered a beautiful performance of “God is a Woman” and her live vocals were everything, and Nicki Minaj slayed her medley performance that included the first live rendition of “Barbie Dreams”. She was on fire and the crowd was on fire as well. What I would have given to be in that crowd!!!
