The MTV Video Music Awards took place in California on Sunday night (25 August). It’s usually an incident packed evening. Last year was notable for Miley Cyrus’ famous ‘twerking’ episode. This year featured performances from Brit breakthrough act Sam Smith, Taylor Swift and an achievement award for Beyonce.
The MTV VMAs. One of the biggest – and usually one of the most eventful – nights in the the music calendar. This year’s show took place in California on Sunday August 25. After stealing the show in 2013 with her famous ‘twerking’ performance, Miley Cyrus was back this year, starting the night by hitting the red carpet with Snoop (and his huge bodyguard on the left).
Miley Cyrus picked up the big Astronaut of the night (best video) for ‘Wrecking Ball’. Rather than taking to the stage herself, however, Cyrus instead asked homeless youth Jesse to accept the award on her behalf. Having received the gong from talk show host Jimmy Fallon, Jesse gave an emotional speech about youth homelessness in the US as a teary Cyrus watched on.
