Exactly 19 years after Madonna’s iconic onstage kiss with Britney Spears the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards aired on Sunday night, hoping to recapture the magic and unpredictability of ceremonies past.

Hosted by LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj and Jack Harlow, the awards show kicked off at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, to honor the biggest and boldest names in music over the past year.

Harlow, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X lead the pack with seven nominations each, followed closely behind by Doja Cat and Harry Styles with six. The artists faced off against Drake, Ed Sheeran, Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift for the coveted Moon Person trophy for Video of the Year.

The “Evermore” singer ultimately prevailed, picking up the award for her “All Too Well” short film and announcing that fans can expect a new album in October during her acceptance speech.

Minaj, a 17-time VMAs nominee and five-time VMAs winner, received MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the ceremony, in addition to delivering a medley of her greatest hits on stage in her first performance at the show since 2018. She also took home the award in the Best Hip-Hop category for her collaboration with Lil Baby, “Do We Have a Problem?”

And while the night proved to be historic for some ― Swift broke the record for most VOTY wins ― the VMAs were, of course, all about performances.

Performers on the mainstage included Lizzo, Anitta, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Blackpink, Måneskin, Marshmallow and Khalid, Panic! At The Disco, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Harlow, who brought out Fergie to perform “First Class.” There was also a star-studded collab between Snoop Dogg and Eminem, which, for some reason, was set in the metaverse.
