The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards recently took place during the wee hours of our time zone. If you were one of those who are avid watchers of the VMAs you’ve probably had your fair share of awesome performances. MTV started the VMAs in 1984 and big stars like Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and even Michael Jackson has graced the stage with notable performances. Who could forget Madonna’s performance at the first VMAs?
Since then, the VMAs has turned into a platform where up and coming stars work to put together a performance that would leave a mark on the industry. Just like how Madonna’s iconic performance emerging from a wedding cake before rolling on the stage left a lasting impression to the audience. The VMAs is also the perfect opportunity to reach more audience than just their normal crowd of fans.
While we all know that Billie Eilish ultimately took home the astronaut statue for Best New Artist, she was unfortunately on tour in Russia. She might not be of attendance at the VMAs this year but she did leave a heartfelt message to thank everybody for her award. It is unfortunate that we didn’t get to watch the winner perform, but her fellow New Artist nominees were in full attendance and put together amazing performances for the night!
Check out the best of the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist nominees!
