The perfect celebration! Followers still speak today about several memorable musical performances during the 2022 MTV VMAs ceremony.
The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards show was broadcast live from the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Sunday, August 28, and was hosted by LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj, and Jack Harlow. The top moments from the awards presentation are broken down underneath. Audiences were rewarded with an enjoyable musical experience right from the beginning.
After jamming out on stage, 24-year-old Harlow started the act. As Fergie joined him in singing “First Class,” he unexpectedly announced her. To a cheering crowd, the 47-year-old native Californian switched to her famous 2007 single “Glamorous.”
Taylor Swift danced in the audience due to Fergie and her enthusiastic cooperation, which sparked an uproar in the crowd. The 32-year-old “Lover” singer Dylan O’Brien and Sarah Ramos also attended the occasion.
The performer of “All Too Well (Swift’s Edition)” continued to move while dancing. Taylor, who took home the Moonperson for Outstanding Long-form Performance, dominated the stage by singing along to many artists throughout much of the night, together with Lizzo and Nicki Minaj.
The artist from “Exile” made a tremendous impression after receiving Video of the Year, but her responses throughout the awards event were also impossible to ignore. During her winning speech, Swift revealed that her upcoming album would be released at the end of October.
Taylor gave Minaj big applause once she entered the stage and wanted the viewer’s whole focus. The 39-year-old “Anaconda” performer showcased her sensual skills and presented a combination of her best songs for the audience.
Before receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV video music awards, the Trinidadian artist performed on the stage, following the likes of Missy Elliot, Jennifer Lopez, Pink, Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Britney Spears. They have all previously received the distinction.
After finishing her mini-concert, Nicki graciously collected the trophy before sobbing because she could usually understand herself speaking due to the overwhelming applause from her supporters.
“I’m very grateful. She referred to her kid, who she and her hubby, Kenneth Petty, share, as her “beautiful baby,” adding, “You people are my baby, but I recently had a new beautiful baby.” Papa Bear is his identity. Your mother adores you a tonne.
The Global Icon Award, one of the largest prizes of the evening, was also given to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who collected it after performing a rock performance. Following the drummer for the Foo Fighters, Taylor Hawkins, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 50, the band, which subsequently won the Most Rock Video award, paid tribute to him in their address.
On speaking of his colleagues Anthony Kiedis, Flea, and John Frusciante, Chad Smith declared, “That there is another artistic legend, worldwide symbol; he is my brother Taylor Hawkins.” Swift and his family are the ones I wish to honor with this. “I adore them and daily miss him. Go for it, Hawk. Go for it, dude.”
