The 2017 Video Music Awards Winners are…

As per usual this year’s MTV Video Music Awards had its fair share of controversies. Viewers at home were surprised when Julia Michaels’ performance of “Issues” was cut off for a preview. While Lorde who couldn’t sing a word due to a bad case of the flu, was able to perform an interpretive dance for the entire duration of “Homemade Dynamite.” 

If that wasn’t bad enough. Jared Leto later introduced a tribute for Linkin Park’s former frontman and friend, Chester Bennington, only to have it cut off for yet another preview. Katy Perry’s hosting skills proved she should stay faraway from standup comedy and hosting all together.  Not to mention her performance of “Swish Swish” was nothing exciting write about. It’s definitely time to move on from that song already.

What we’re really here for are the winners of the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Check ’em out below.
