VMA celebrated MTV’s 40th anniversary by mixing the moments of early network stars such as Cyndi Lauper with opener Madonna performing high-octane performances with new stars such as Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Camila Cabello and Chloe.

Beaver, dressed in sports baggage and a hoodie, thanked the award for meeting him in person and thanked his wife, Haley, for supporting him.

Jennifer Lopez, who made a rekindled romance with Ben Affleck’s officials on the red carpet for his new film The Last Duel at the Venice International Film Festival three days ago, presented Rodrigo with her trophy.
Billie Eilish won a fan-voted video for her song “Your Power”. In her acceptance speech, she said Alicia Keys kissed her cheek before talking about the satisfaction of writing a song and the empowerment of women.
