Photos: Winners and Highlights at the MTV VMAs 2015


Every year the MTV VMAs seem to be an unforgettable night. From the amazing performances to the best and worst dressed in fashion. This year there was a lot to talk about!


Miley Cyrus was the master of ceremonies. Her wardrobe kept changing throughout the night but she kept the same skin clad theme going. But the most memorable moment of the night is Kanye West‘s acceptance speech for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Jokingly or not Kanye revealed that he would be running for president of the free world in 2020!


In addition, a number of our favorite singers performed during the show. With Nicki Minaj kicking off the show with her hot performance and Taylor Swift joining her on stage singing “Bad Blood.”


Nick Jonas performed his new single, “Levels,” during the pre-show. Tori Kelly also performed.


Macklemore and Ryan Lewis gave a energetic performance.


Twenty One Pilots with A$AP Rocky heat up the stage!


Pharrell got the crowd going in his performance!


Justin Bieber gave an emotional performance including both “Where Are U Now” and Bieber’s new single “What Do You Mean?” where he was brought to tears at the end.


As winners this year, Taylor Swift did not disappoint and took home a couple of awards. “You already know…” Ice Cube said before announcing that Taylor Swift had won Video of the Year for “Bad Blood,” and of course, we already did. Swift brought her “Bad Blood” squad up on stage that included Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Hailee Steinfeld, Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez, Serayah, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, and Mariska Hargitay.


Miley closed out the sbow with a drag queen-packed performance announcing her new and free album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.
