MTV’s Video Music Awards 2017: The Full List Of Winners
Tonight is the night of the 2017 Video Music Awards, and the evening is shaping up to be another big night in music. This year MTV did away with gendered categories, so male and female acts are competing against one another for the likes of Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best New Artist and many others. The winners will take home an iconic Moon Person Award, and things are bound to get pretty competitive at Inglewood, California’s The Forum.
Pink is set to receive the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and Kendrick Lamar is leading the nominations with 8 nods, many for his critically acclaimed video “Humble.” The 30-year-old rapper opened the show with an explosive medley, and many others including Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes, and the evening’s host Katy Perry are also set to take the stage throughout the night. Taylor Swift will also be there to premiere the music video for her fiery new single “Look What You Made Me Do.”
