VMA’s 2013: Your Winners & Top Performances

August 27, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

Last night the MTV VMA’s aired on UK screens for those who didn’t catch the live action in person, online or from the comfort of their front room from across the pond the night before. Was is worth the wait?

As a whole, the show provided some good performances from the likes of Robin Thicke, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake to name a few and of course N Sync and Danity Kane pleased their dedicated fans as their reunions took place on stage for the boy and girl band lovers out there succumbing to the weeks rumours and promo news.

As much as we look forward to seeing the night’s performances, of course the night belongs to all musicians, in particular those who become owners of the year’s Moonman’s courtesy of the music television network.

Justin Timberlake gained a Lifetime Achievement Award, Pink and fun’s Nate Ruess won Best Collaboration for their duet ‘Give Me A Reason’, Bruno Mars’ ‘Treasure’ won him Best Choreography, Best Art Direction came in the form of the amazing duo that is Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu’s ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Mirrors’ won ‘Video Of The Year’.

Check out all your 2013 winners below.

With Lady Gaga’s unique appearance which saw her change five times during her show opening, here’s her new video for the single ‘Applause’.
