Breakdown of the Video Music Awards

MTV Pays an Homage to the Years Before Through Star-Studded Headliners and Guests

  The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards were held on September 12, 2021, hosted by the singer and rapper Doja Cat. Due to the 40th birthday of MTV approaching, the VMAs were more star-studded than usual featuring Madonna, the breakout star of the first Video Music Awards ever, kicking off the show.

  Performances featured Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Machine Gun Kelly, and many more. The biggest winners of the night were Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo, and BTS, who all won three awards each. 

   Justin Bieber claimed the title of most nominations with his nine nominations which resulted in two wins. Blue Ivy Carter, at nine years old, was the youngest winner of an MTV Video Music Award as part of the Best Cinematography win for “Brown Skin Girl.” 

   Despite the channel’s best efforts, the 2021 VMAs were the first time less than a million people tuned in to watch, but were greatly successful on social media resulting in 38 million interactions. The VMAs this year was one we will never forget.
