One of our favorite nights of the year, the MTV Video Music Awards, aired their annual awards ceremony last night (August 30) hosted by the multi-talented Keke Palmer. We love Keke because she can do anything; host, act, sing… did I leave anything out? And she is kind!

 

The 2020 VMAs went live from New York City, home of MTV Networks, in Times Square. The Weekndopened the show with an electrifying performance of his hit song "Blinding Lights"! Literally, he was high above Manhattan with views that would make you dizzy to look down. Imagine being there in person. Goosebumps!! Later in the night, The Weeknd took home Video of the Year and Best R&B. The artist used his acceptance speech simply to say, “Justice for Jacob Blake. Justice for Breonna Taylor."

 

 

 

Lady Gaga took home 4 awards, including Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, Artist of the Year, and Best Cinematography. She also took the stage to perform a “medley of her hits” and “Rain on Me” alongside the talented Ariana Grande. She had the best wardrobe changes, mask included. She should get an award for her many face masks she adorned. Additionally, Gaga was honored with the first Tricon Award, which, for the uninformed, is “something or a piece of creation with multiple values; multivalued; also known as Tricon." There you have it -- She is LADY MISS TRICON now! And it was a BIG night for Lady Miss Tricon! Congrats, Gaga, you deserve it!
