MTV VMA 2017
Written by Archit Chawla

The past year has been phenomenal when we think about the varied music we were exposed to. From Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You to Kendrick Lamar’s Humble to The Weeknd’s Starboy and what not, the year gave us some breathtaking music to listen to and chill on. The night was all about some engrossing performances and big words. Basically, MTV VMAs was mighty kind to Kendrick Lamar. His track HUMBLE received maximum accolades and gathered praises from everywhere. He was the showstopper and owned the night as he won awards of major categories including Video of the Year, Best Direction, Best Cinematography and much more.

Katy Perry, who served as the night’s host, started with a video sketch about space travel that featured astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Peggy Whitson. Few moments later Kendrick Lamar kicked off the show with a mini-medley of his songs. The fiery set included a man totally engulfed in flames and that caught everyone’s attention that instant. Lamar went into the evening with eight nominations, followed by Katy Perry and The Weeknd tied with five nominations each.

Though the award show clashed with the all famous Game Of Thrones season 7 finale and got divided attention from the viewers. This star studded evening had P!nk who took us through a nostalgic trip by performing on all her songs from old to new. She was awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Heartthrob Miley Cyrus too presented a kickass act with the whole 50s vibe and made the award show a better place to be.
