Η εκδήλωση για τα μουσικά βραβεία του MTV για το 2021, πραγματοποιήθηκε στο Brooklyn Barclays Center χτες το βράδυ, με την Doja Cat να παρουσιάζει την τελετή, ενώ τα μεγαλύτερα αστέρια της μουσικής βρίσκονταν εκεί, διεκδικώντας τα βραβεία της διοργάνωσης.

Ο μεγάλος νικητής της βραδιάς ήταν ο Lil Nas X, ο οποίος έλαβε αρκετές διακρίσεις, συμπεριλαμβανομένου του πολυπόθητου Video of the Year, καλύτερης σκηνοθεσίας και καλύτερα οπτικά εφέ, όλα για το τραγούδι του “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)”, το οποίο και αφιέρωσε στους απανταχού ομοφυλόφιλους, τους οποίους στηρίζει ιδιαίτερα με τις πρόσφατες δουλειές του. Ανάμεσα στους νικητές ήταν η Olivia Rodrigo, ο Justin Bieber, η Billie Eilish, οι BTS και ο Travis Scott.

Ο Bieber επέστρεψε στη σκηνή των VMAs έπειτα από 6 χρόνια, ερμηνεύοντας ένα ντουέτο με τον Kid Laroi (”Stay”), αλλά και το “Ghost” από το πιο πρόσφατο άλμπουμ του με τίτλο “Justice”. Επίσης, αίσθηση προκάλεσε και η Chloe Bailey (του R&B σχήματος Chloe x Halle), ερμηνεύοντας σόλο το νέο της κομμάτι “Have Mercy”, μπροστά σε ένα μεγάλο κοινό. Επίσης, ο Lil Nas X έκλεψε τις εντυπώσεις κάνοντας εμφάνιση στη σκηνή πλάι στον ράπερ Jack Harlow, που μαζί είπαν τη νέα τους επιτυχία “Industry Baby”, δίνοντας μια μοναδική εμφάνιση με πολλούς χορευτές να τους πλαισιώνουν επί σκηνής.

Στο πλαίσιο του εορτασμού του διάσημου μουσικού θεσμού, η Madonna και η Jennifer Lopez έκαναν χωριστά μικρές εμφανίσεις στην έναρξη της τελετής, ενώ από τις πιο ιδιαίτερες στιγμές της εκδήλωσης ήταν εκείνη των Foo Fighters. Η διάσημη και αγαπητή μπάντα παρέλαβε το Global Icon Award και, στη συνέχεια, τίμησε τον αείμνηστο ντράμερ Charlie Watts, παίζοντας μερικές επιτυχίες των θρύλων Rolling Stones.
