It was an electrifying atmosphere in Brooklyn, US, on Sunday night. The MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), held for the first time at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, kicked off with pop diva Lady Gaga starting off her act with a Marilyn Monroe wig, later stripping down to her bare minimum. Her power-packed performance was followed by one by Miley Cyrus, who shed her squeaky clean Hannah Montana image to do a JLo-style gig with musician Robin Thicke. What arguably was the best performance of the night, was rapper Kanye West’s surprisingly simple but melodious act.
Video Vanguard Award recipient Justin Timberlake did a solo before ending the act with a dramatic appearance of members of his reu-nited boy bond ‘N Sync.
The award goes to...
Video of the Year: Mirrors, Justin Timberlake
Best Male Video: Locked out of Heaven, Bruno Mars
Best Female Video: I Knew you were Trouble, Taylor Swift
Best Pop Video: Come and Get it, Selena Gomez
