Last night, at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, California, the 34th MTV Video Music Award took place. Presented by an overwhelming Katy Perry, the show crowned kings of music Kendrick Lamar, who won the most prizes and thrilled the audience with an infernal performance, but the evening was fun for everyone.

Lorde, unvoiced, she danced to the tune of Homemade Dynamite; Ed Sheeran had fun with his friend Shawn Mendes; the Fifth Armony exhibited their little sympathy towards the former Camila Cabello; Jared Leto has dedicated a moving tribute to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington before performing completely with a thermal viewer; Pink recalled the importance of accepting; Taylor Swift, absent, presented the video of Look What You Made Me Do.

Here are the best moments of the show.

 

#1 Astro Katy

Last night, Katy Perry, both as a performer and host, has charmed and entertained audiences with strokes of jokes and irony, with digs at Trump and Justin Bibier, interspersed with a series of intergalactic look.Her cult moments?

The arrival on stage in the astronaut version and the conclusion of the show singing from the top of a giant basketball Swich Swich, the latest single from the album Witness.

 

#2 Kendrick Lamar is on fire

With five statuettes (for best visual effects, best art direction, best direction, best hip hop video and video of the year for Humble), Kendrick Lamar is the winner of the last MTV Video Music Awards.

The Californian rapper celebrated his incredible success by opening the show with a live performance literally set on fire with dancers swallowed by flames during the hellish medley between DNA and Humble.

 

#3 Pink’s acceptance speech

Pink won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, sings a mix of her successes (What About Us, Get This Party Started, Raise Your Glass, So What and Perfect)  and with a touching speech Reminds us of the importance of accepting.

Always and in any case.

The inspiration is an anecdote on Willow’s six-year-old daughter who, some time ago, said "I’m the ugliest girl I know. And I said, “Huh?” And she was like, “Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair".

The singer’s response?

Remain true to yourself even when people mocks her, saying, "I look like a boy or I’m too masculine or I have too many opinions", as did iconic artists from the androgynous look, from Michael Jackson to David Bowie, from Prince to Annie Lennox and Freddie Mercury "live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life, and carry on, wave their flag, and inspire the rest of us".

Here the entire speech:

 

#4 Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” video 

Everyone was waiting to see the live confrontation between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, but the blonde did not appear.

She preferred to launch the premiere of the video for Look What You Made Me Do, a blaze of glamor images where Taylor comes out of the grave zombie version, lives in a luxurious palace as a pop queen, she crashes the car into a pole while paparazzi run to photograph, swing on a swing closed in a cage, dictator’s version in front of an army of women all equal or remembers when in 2009 at the stage of the Video Music Awards to retire the Best Female prize interrupted by Kanye West.

 

#5 Best dressed

The usual parade of dresses on the red carpet. The most beautiful looks?

The spectacular Monique Lhuillier dress made of feathers worn by Lorde, Stéphane Rolland’s long white dress chosen by Katy Perry, Millie Bobby Brown, the star of  Stranger Things, in an all ruffles dress by Rodarte and Paris Jackson in Dior. Throwback time for Teyana Taylor who recreated a look proposed by Janet Jackson in the MTV VMAs of 1995.
