Hot off the heels of their latest album, Confetti, and a day after the finale of their BBC talent show – Little Mix: The Search, the night’s hosts put on an electrifying performance full of jaw-dropping choreo and general iconic-ness. Of course we were all missing the effervescent energy of Sarah Harding impersonator Jesy Nelson (get well soon, chick!), but as always the girls pulled it out of the bag. Let them host every year, we say!

The beloved boyband cleaned out last night, coming away with four awards including Biggest Fans, Best Virtual Live Show, their 3rd for Best Group, and, of course, Best Song – “Dynamite”. They even dedicated their last award to all the soldiers in their BTS army for putting up with these harsh times and appreciating the music, so it looks like we’re all winners!
Doja Cat revives nu-metal
Can we talk about this nu-metal moment for a sec? Doja has proved over and over she’s not afraid to experiment with genre, from medieval bard readings on IG to the full-on resuscitation of ‘00s Lavigne-esque grunge-pop by way of her sk8er hit “Bottom Bitch”. Last night the singer added ‘metalhead’ to her extensive sound repertoire with a headbanging cover of Tik-Tok certified smash “Say So”, trading in ‘70s disco balls for a foreboding field of daisies (and goths). We’d be lying if we said we didn’t love every minute of it…
DaBaby gets political
From cop cars to the courtroom, DaBaby performed a gripping medley of his greatest hits, shining light directly on the epidemic of police brutality in the US through the lyrics of “Practice”, “Blind” & “ROCKSTAR”.

Though she missed out on Best Video with the beyond iconic, spaceboot-stomping Ariana Grande for “Rain On Me”, the Chromatica Queen was another talent who totally scored at last night’s ceremony. Winning Best Artist and US Act, this brings her career total to 70 wins in MTV-hosted ceremonies – meaning she’s the channel’s most decorated artist, ever!

Arriving to the festivities in a cheetah print straight jacket, the “cotton candy“ singing anarchist set the tone for a night full of gorgeous fashions before his performance last night. Clad in an ultra-sleek American Apparel tennis skirt, replete with striking dark wings and a barbed-wire crown, the Doncaster-helmed singer took the stage as the ultimate gothic angel, flying all over the shop as he sung his bloody heart out.
