MTV Video Music Awards Winners 2018

Everyone Who Took Home a Moon Person at the VMAs This Year

The MTV Video Music Awards winners are here! The award show took place on Tuesday at NYC's Radio City Music Hall, and it did not disappoint (well, except for whatever that Aretha Franklin "tribute" was from Madonna . . . ). The long list of nominees included names like Camila Cabello, Childish Gambino, Bruno Mars, Cardi B (who hit the pink carpet looking like a queen, for the record), and more. As for who actually ended up taking home a Moon Person trophy for themselves? Hayley Kiyoko, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, and more picked up awards, while Jennifer Lopez was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award.
