Last night was the 2019 VMA’s!  Performances and collaborations were amazing as expected!  Even though MTV isn’t much into the music video business anymore, they still put out amazing award shows!

As expected, there’s always something that goes wrong and there’s always great moments that will be talked about for weeks to come.  Missy Elliott was given the Vanguard Award and then absolutely put on the best performance of the night!
