The MTV Video Music Awards will be remembered for many things – Miley Cyrus’ foam finger, Lady Gaga’s thong and Rihanna’s reaction to Drake’s performance. But this year’s awards clearly belonged to Justin Timberlake.
The actor for a brief period reunited with ‘N Sync and won a host of awards on the night. He bagged the moonman trophies including the top honor video of the year for ‘Mirrors’. He also won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. What was even more highlighting about the array of prizes taken away by Timberlake was that he overshadowed most other pop stars of today while doing it all.
Two other top winners of the night were Macklemore and Ryan Lewis who took home awards for the best hip-hop video and best cinematography.
On the whole, the music video awards night was a spectacle in itself. It had spite, and yes lots and lots of skin. The performances were jazzy with each star looking to upstage the other.
