Grande won best pop and Post Malone took home song of the year.

The much-anticipated Video Music Awards show is right around the corner, and it looks like the opening act, Cardi B, has something spectacular in store for the audience.

But the trophies were mostly in technical categories, including choreography and direction. "I'm the empress-the liberals voted for me", she said with her signature cackle. So to say that J.Lo came to slay (and is here to stay) would be an understatement.

Put some lovely people in a glamorous location, add in some friendship or relationship drama and you have a hit on your hands. "Love live the queen".

"I grew up on MTV and this is really like a tremendous honor for me", said J.Lo.

He was also front and center during her epic performance. Travis Scott, whose album is No. 1 for a second week, had strong energy while onstage, but the performance felt like it belonged more to singer James Blake, who is featured on Scott's album and performed just as long as Scott during the segment.

Before the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards kicked off, viewers got to watch a few lucky artists earn a moon person a bit early.




She then waved to the group down the camera as they weren't at the awards.

Jennifer Lopez looked as glamorous as ever in a sparkling look by Atelier Versace (one of several she wore throughout the evening) while others experimented with tailoring, classic ballgowns and even Latex. "My life is sweeter and better with you in it".

Sources connected to the production tell us Cardi will in fact open the VMAs Monday as has been announced, but she won't be rockin' the mic for MTV.

"I had the baby, I carried the baby and now I'm still winning awards", she said.

"And Alex. You're like my twin soul".

She described it as a "surreal moment". Normani now has her first hit apart from the group with the Khalid-assisted "Love Lies".

However, fans of the show spotted that some of the original cast members weren't present at the VMAs, leading to speculation over whether they'll be taking part.
