2014 MTV Video Music Awards Show Roundup

The MTV Video Music Awards show is always an interesting take on the current state of popular music. The 2014 installment of the show took place last night at the Forum in Inglewood, with Jay Pharoah holding down hosting duties.

Beyoncé was the biggest winner of the night, taking home four awards: Best Video With a Social Message and Best Cinematography for “Pretty Hurts” and Best Collaboration for “Drunk In Love,” as well as the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. She then proceeded to kill her live performance with a 15-minute medley that spanned the highlights of her latest self-titled album. However, Bey lost the Video of the Year award to Miley Cyrus for  “Wrecking Ball.” Cyrus had a homeless man named Jesse accept the award for Video of the Year, raising awareness about youth homelessness.

Nicki Minaj performed three times, with live renditions of “Bang Bang,” “Anaconda,” and “She Came To Give It To You,” all while narrowly avoiding a wardrobe malfunction. Country-singer-turned-pop-star Taylor Swift performed her controversial single “Shake It Off,” and asked the haters to “just shake it off.” Common asked the audience for a moment of silence for teenager Michael Brown.

While the award show broadcast only focused on the results of seven categories, the full list of award winners was revealed afterwards.

Watch the performances here, and check out the full list of winners here.
