    Love how excited the audience seemed.

    I still cant get over Naughty By Nature and Queen Latifah performing U.N.I.T.Y.... her intro was out of this world.

    I just saw Lizzo's performance and it was great! I thought she would have been out of breath for that note hold on Good As Hell but she pulled it off stunningly! I hope it's the next number 1 on the Hot 100.

    Taylor deserved her award for Video Of The Year and I really loved her speech. Love her throwing shade <3

    Also, the performances were quite good this time. Miley and Missy were excellent, I loved the camera work for "Senorita" and Taylor's performance was joyful. She basically performed two of my favourite singles by her.

    I would have liked to see her Rock artist and Ariana Grande on stage as well, though

    I know Hip-Hop isn't that well liked here but let me show my appreciation for this Big Sean/A$AP Ferg performance. It was a cute little performance and I'm happy that more and more rappers & singers (especially male) are starting to input more choreography into their performances. Shawn better take notes.

    Also, I liked the venue that they picked for this year. Based on the videos, it kinda looks bigger than some awards shows in the past few years (except for the GRAMMY's obviously).

    ^Kudos to them for mentioning online video views! People be dragging these award shows for having low ratings these day, but the reality is, all of us have moved to YouTube instead of watching conventional television.

    ^Do note they mentioned percentage gain only, so it's very likely that the online views are very small and would look laughable compared to what are already low TV ratings. The huge gain also points that that starting number is low.

    That's why Bey won't perform there anymore, people could actually see her.

    ^Well nearly every performance got to a million views for its first 24, some of them even more. I wouldn't consider that low or no interest.

    They talked about live online views while the show was airing, not post airing YT video views.

    Yes I got that but in my opinion that is also still an important point to look at those things. Just because ratings weren't the best doesn't mean people are not interested. As long as people are checking for it in any kind of form for the show it is still lucrative. The ratings might've seen better times but they can reach a much broader audience now.

    YT streams are the worst when it comes to royalties. A stream is worth about $0.0007. So 5m views gets you a nice big $3,500.

    Views on YT for MTV are only for bragging rights and vanity. It's not a source of income for them.

    IDK about you guys, BUT I need to observe on Missy performance.
    First of all it was the best vanguard performance, everything was on point. Missy, stage, looks, songs she choose, Alyson…

    BUT
    Why did Cardi B presented the award for Missy? How the and what the hell.


    I mean, there wasn't Timbaland, Ciara, Tweet, Ludacris, Justin, Janet… but there was Lil Kim!!!!!!!!
    It was WRONG Cardi to present this award, they shouldve invited some of the names I mentiones. MTV ****ed that up.

    It was a great show overall, what's amazing is that they are more focused now on the music performances rather than trying to make controversy happen.

    Lil Nas X was the worst one, the big production and the song saved him.

    Cardi B should not be allowed to be near a teleprompter, she was a mess.

    Ariana deserved Video of the Year, she was robbed!

    Miley looked so good, she has the best body ever, her legs were accentuated!

    I'm so glad Billie Eilish won Best New Artist, Lizzo is way too hyped but she was cute during the telecast.

    Hope this flops so hard, they are so annoying individually, what more collectively.
