The MTV Video Music Awards 2018 performances were truly a piece of art. Especially Ariana Grande stole the show when performing her strong female-celebrating song “God Is A Woman” from the new album “Sweetener”.
GOD IS ARIANA GRANDE
Ariana Grande opened the show with a Leonardo Da-Vinci The Last Supper-inspired scene, the owner of the unique voice was sitting in the center of a long table having women dressed in brightly colored silk leotards in front of a forest of columns. Rocking a golden mini dress and thigh-high boots, Grande seductively scooted across the bench at the front of the stage, swaying back in forth in unison with over 50 female dancers.
BLESS UP THE QUEEN, J-LO
Who ran the VMA next? Jennifer Lopez with her medley of hits showing her latina moves and taming all-men dancers around her. She was the Queen of the night indeed.
J. Lo, this year’s recipient of the Video Vanguard award, commanded the full attention of the audience when she appeared in a regal blue and gold Versace look to perform a rousing rendition of her greatest hits, starting with “Waiting for Tonight.” Lopez also performed songs like “On the Floor,” “Let’s Get Loud,” and “Ain’t Your Mama,” along with throwback favorites like “My Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “All I Have,” and of course, “Jenny From the Block,” which she performed on a set that included a 6 line subway train.
HER MAJESTY NICKI MINAJ
Nicki Minaj took the stage performing her songs “Majesty”, “Barbie Dreams”, “Ganga Burn” and “Fefe” and delivered one sexy, massive, golden show dressed in gold/pink armor.
Minaj won earlier in the evening for her track “Chun Li,” as Best Hip-Hop Video. Best Hip-Hop Video is an award she’s taken home before as well, for 2011’s “Super Bass” and 2015’s “Anaconda.” This year she won against serious contenders like Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s joint project, Cardi B, Drake, J. Cole and the Migos, all in the same category.
💕 @NICKIMINAJ CAME THROUGH WITH THE PERFORMANCE WE ALL NEEDED.
