Post Malone was the big winner at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which were presented Wednesday (Oct. 14). He won nine awards, including artist of the year.

Khalid was the year’s second-biggest winner, with five awards, followed by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, who won four awards each on the strength of their record-setting collab “Old Town Road (Remix).”

This year’s show was originally scheduled for April 29 but was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kelly Clarkson hosted the show for the third year in a row.

Billie Eilish: The teen phenom’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?  won top Billboard 200 album, nearly nine months after it won the Grammy for album of the year. It’s the fourth album in the past 10 years to receive both of these awards, following Adele’s 21 and 25 and Taylor Swift’s 1989. Eilish also won top female artist, beating last year’s winner, Ariana Grande, and three-time category champ Swift. Eilish also took top new artist. She’s the first female artist to win in this category since Lorde in 2014.

Lady Gaga Reveals Her VMA Prep Techniques in Hilarious Posts

0

Lady Gaga's Incoming Single Seemingly Samples Nelly Furtado's ...

At the beginning of March, Lady Gaga announced the initial dates of her “Chromatica Ball” tour promoting her new album, which would have seen her playing a half dozen dates in Europe and the U.S., concluding at MetLife Stadium on August 19. Well, we all know what happened next, and while a canceled tour is hardly the end of the world, as a preview of her appearance on the VMAs this Sunday, Gaga vented a little bit in a pair of recent social media posts.

In the first clip, posted Thursday and captioned “When you want to be on stage performing for your fans but there’s a super-virus #VMAs,” we get a couple of glimpses of her vividly decorated home before the camera cuts to Gaga laying face-down in bed, wearing a yellow “Chromatica” t-shirt, underwear that says “Tokyo” and an odd, lobster-ish headdress. The words “Dreaming of reality” pass across the screen before she screams into her pillow, and then there’s a test-pattern sound followed by the words “Stay tuned.” We then see Gaga floating in a pool on a big unicorn-shaped raft, holding a parasol.

In a separate photo posted on Instagram late Tuesday, we see more of her warrior-performer stance as the VMAs draw near: She sits in an ice bath, doing devil horns with both hands: “#vmas,” the caption reads, with a pair of emojis.

Lady Gaga will be performing with Ariana Grande at the VMAs on Sunday night, which is fitting since they both are the show’s top nominees, with nine each — many of them for “Rain on Me,” their duet from “Chromatica.”

Freak Out: Lady Gaga Set Has Been Added as a VMAs Performer

Gaga is coming back to the VMAs on a career high.

Lady Gaga has been added to the lineup of performers for the VMAs on Aug. 30. The superstar announced the news on social media Thursday (Aug. 13).

MTV didn’t reveal what song(s) Gaga will perform, other than to say that she “will bring her chart-topping album, Chromatica, to life” and that it will be “the world premiere televised performance of her latest release.”

It will be Gaga’s fourth VMAs performance; her first since she opened the 2013 telecast with “Applause.» Gaga also performed on the VMAs in 2011 (teaming with Brian May for «Yoü and I») and 2009 (performing “Poker Face” and “Paparazzi”).

Previously-announced performers are BTS, Doja Cat, J Balvin, The Weeknd, Roddy Ricch, Maluma and CNCO. Keke Palmer is set to host the show.

Gaga is tied with Ariana Grande for the most nominations this year — nine each.

Gaga has won 13 VMAs — a total topped by just two artists in VMAs history: Beyoncé with 24 and Madonna with 20. Gaga’s video for “Bad Romance” won seven awards at the 2010 show, including video of the year. Only one other video has won seven or more awards. Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” won nine awards at the 1987 show.

Gaga is coming back to the VMAs on a career high. She won an Oscar for best original song for “Shallow” from A Star Is Born in early 2019. She was also nominated for best actress. Her current album, Chromatica, entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1, her sixth album to top that chart. “Rain on Me,” her collab with Grande, entered the Hot 100 at No. 1, allowing Gaga to set a new record for the longest span of No. 1-debuting singles. It was nine years, three months and one week since she opened in the top spot with “Born This Way.”

Seven of Gaga’s VMA nods this year are for “Rain on Me.” She is also nominated for artist of the year and in the new best quarantine performance category for her cover of the pop standard “Smile” from One World: Together at Home, which aired in syndication on April 18.

Gaga’s VMAs performance could boost Chromatica’s chances of landing a Grammy nomination for album of the year. Gaga was nominated for the top Grammy for The Fame (2009), The Fame Monster (2010) and Born This Way (2011).

Fans can vote for their favorites across 15 gender-neutral categories, including video of the year and artist of the year through Aug. 23 at vma.mtv.com. Voting for PUSH best new artist presented by Chime Banking will remain open until the show is on the air.

Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello Cuddled All Night Long

The pair certainly got cozy onstage when they performed “Señorita” together, but the PDA only continued as they couldn’t keep their hands off each other while in the audience.

Lizzo Performed with a Giant, Inflatable Butt as a Backdrop

Run — don’t walk! — to go watch Lizzo’s performance of “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell.”
                        There were iconic costumes! A yellow body suit that made Lizzo look like the sun! An inflatable butt! Backup dancers ripping wigs off and swinging them around with reckless abandon! It was pure joy from start to finish.

John Travolta Tried to Give the Moon Person to the Wrong Taylor Swift

While presenting the award for Video of the Year to Swift and the cast of her “You Need to Calm Down” music video, Travolta appeared to make a pretty iconic mixup, seemingly trying to had the trophy to Jade Jolie, the drag queen who plays Swift in the video. That’s a pretty huge compliment, if you look at the bright side!

Miley Cyrus Performed ‘Slide Away’ for the First Time Since Her Split

Cyrus took the stage to sing “Slide Away,” a song many assume to be about her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. The performance comes just a few days after Hemsworth officially filed for divorce. 
                        Backstage, Cyrus was seen with Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex-wife who is tangled up in the breakup rumors. Cyrus was seen kissing Carter just days after announcing her separation.

Alyson Stoner Returned 17 Years Later to Reprise her Role as the Star of Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’

The legendary Missy Elliot put on a performance filled with iconic moments from her video music career ahead of receiving the coveted Video Vanguard Award. Fans, like Halsey and Gigi Hadid, got out of their seats to dance as Elliot rapped to a medley of her hits, including “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lose Control.” Then, as an added surprise, Elliot brought out dancer Stoner, who appeared in the original 2002 “Work It” video, to revive her role as the dancer who stole the spotlight almost two decades ago.

Normani Absolutely Crushed Her ‘Motivation’ Debut Performance

2019 has become the singer’s breakout year, following the release of the viral video for her smash hit “Motivation.” Normani’s highly anticipated performance went off with a bang, as she appeared on stage sitting on top of a basketball hoop in between her dancers who twerked on chain link fences. She also brought other memorable moments from her video to the stage, such as the high-energy choreography, the 2000s-inspired looks and her now-famous move where she makes going from a headstand to landing smoothly into a split look easy.

Cardi B Thanked the Real Heroes

 

The rapper was as candid as ever while she accepted the award for best hip hop video. Cardi rocked a form-fitting burgundy gown with a cleavage-revealing neckline as she thanked her glam team, makeup artist, hairstylist and music video director, Jora Frantzis. 
                        “Since this is the Video Music Awards and everything, I really want to thank my music video team — first Jora Frantzis — that’s the director. She gotta hear outta my mouth, ‘I look ugly. Edit my stomach, edit my butt. Smooth my cellulite out,’” Cardi said onstage.

Lizzo Chugged from a Rhinestone Liquor Bottle

 

As if the singer’s “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell” medley could get any more incredible, Lizzo took a quick breather from singing and dancing to take a drink. A rhinestone-covered bottle, which looked like a tequila bottle, appeared and the star leaned back and chugged it like a champ.

Lil Nas X Got In on the Remix Joke

 

In a flash forward to the year 2079, a news reporter announced that Lil Nas X is president, and he’d be releasing the 3,162nd remix of “Old Town Road.” The fictional remix was to feature “Yung Sandwich,” “Ghost of Benjamin Franklin,” and “Megan Thee Stallion’s Twerk Wind” and “Old Thug.”
                        After the skit, which cashed in on the joke that there have been too many remixes of the hit song to count, Lil Nas X and his dancers absolutely smashed a performance of his song “Panini.”

Missy Elliott’s Magical Wig Snatch

The 2019 Video Vanguard Award honoree’s unforgettable performance started with a wig snatch that brought her lyrics to life. As soon as Elliott rapped, “Im’a snatch their wigs, til I see that scalp,” all of her dancers’ Missy-inspired wigs disappeared. The dancers continued while rocking bald caps.

Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes Trolled the Audience and Almost Kissed

 

Evoking the extremely steamy music video for the single, Cabello kicked things off in the duo and rumored couple’s first-time “Señorita” performance, singing the song’s opening lines as she walked atop a stage littered with romantic lights. Shawnmila shippers prepared themselves for a potential on-stage kiss, but instead, they got some seriously sensual moments that got really, really close to it. 
                        The high-profile duo teased several kisses during the performance without delivering, but they did rub their noses together before breaking into smiles, sharing an enthusiastic hug, and leaving the stage hand-in-hand. 
                        Later, the pair accepted their award for best collaboration, leaving fans without a stage kiss once again.

Taylor Swift Trolled the White House

 

While accepting the best video award for “You Need to Calm Down,” Swift took the opportunity to get political while throwing shade. “In this video, several points were made,” she said. “You want a world where we’re all treated equally regardless of who we love and how we identify.”
                        The singer continued, “I want to thank everyone who signed [the Equality Act] petition because it has half a million signatures, which is five times the amount it would need to get a response from the White House.” Swift deadpanned, pointing to her wrist and tapping an invisible watch as the crowd went wild.

John Travolta Tried to Learn from His Mistakes

 

While presenting the video of the year award with Queen Latifah, the actor hesitated before reading the name on the card. “I shouldn’t do this because I’ll just mispronounce s— and f— it up,” he said, referencing the time he famously called Tony winner Idina Menzel “Adele Dazeem” at the Oscars. (Thankfully, he didn’t butcher Swift’s name when she won the award for “You Need to Calm Down.”)

Taylor Swift Receives Inaugural Icon Award at Teen Choice Awards — and Announces New Song!

0

We promise that you’ll never find an icon like Taylor Swift!

The “ME!” singer was awarded the inaugural Icon Award at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards.

“Okay, we have a lot to talk about,” began Swift after accepting her surfboard from World Cup champion Alex Morgan, whom Swift praised for taking a stand against the gender pay gap along with Morgan’s teammates on the U.S. Soccer Women’s National Team.

The 29-year-old singer was handed a personalized and bedazzled surfboard, emblazoned with the star’s three cats, Olivia Benson, Meredith Grey and Benjamin Button.

“These are my furry children, and this is a really proud moment for me that they are on a Teen Choice surfboard,” she said. “Aesthetically speaking, this might be my favorite award.”

Swift went on to thank her fans, calling them the “most amazing, generous people,” before sharing words of wisdom to guide teenagers.

“One thing I wish I would have known when I was a teen is mistakes are inevitable,” she said.

“You think you can possibly ace life, but it’s normal to make mistakes… it’s normal,” she added. “That’s what’s going to happen in life.”

Swift saved a big surprise for the end of her speech, telling viewers that there’s “so much to be excited about in the next 12 days” — and that includes her new song, “Lover,” which she said debuts on Friday, Aug. 16.

Taylor Swift

For her big moment in the spotlight, Swift wore a bright Versace bodysuit with matching shorts and a blazer, Kat Maconie shoes, Misahara earrings and rings by Irene Neuwirth, VRAM and Emily P. Wheeler.

Fox announced that the singer would be receiving the award last month, calling the artist “a pop culture icon whose accolades and achievements go beyond topping music charts and selling out stadiums worldwide.”

“Swift is also one of today’s biggest social influencers, using her voice and platform to inspire and create positive change,” the statement added.

“She is going to be obsessed!” one fan tweeted about the surfboard.

“She Is going to love this sooo much!” another fan chimed in.

Swift is set to release her seventh studio album, Lover, later this month and has already given fans the album’s first three singles.

Leading up to the Teen Choice Awards, Swift gave lucky fans in London, Nashville and Los Angeles a sneak peek of Lover during her secret sessions.

“When you think Taylor Swift, I hope you think of me,” one fan tweeted a photo alongside Swift. “Your genuine excitement, support, & love is everything to me.”
