The VMAs 2022 were broadcast live on Sunday, August 28, and they were held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Three emcees—LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj, and Jack Harlow—hosted the event. Each member of the unusual three hosted the VMAs for the first time on this occasion, and they rotated hosting duties throughout the evening.

For co-host Nicki Minaj, who received the renowned Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, it was a very significant night. Along with other notable artists from the evening like BLACKPINK, Anitta, Lizzo, and Bad Bunny—who performed his set live from Yankee Stadium—Nicki also hit the stage. The 2022 VMAs will have two new categories, “Best Longform Video” and “Best Metaverse Performance,” in addition to the 22 major categories and three social categories that were included this year.

The prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award was given to co-host Nicki Minaj, thus it was a very important night for her. Nicki performed on stage alongside other well-known performers from the evening, including BLACKPINK, Anitta, Lizzo, and Bad Bunny, who gave a live set from Yankee Stadium. The “Best Longform Video” and “Best Metaverse Performance” categories will be added to the 22 major categories and three social categories that will be present at the 2022 VMAs.

With two further victories in the Best Longform Video and Best Direction categories, Taylor was one of the night’s greatest winners. In her victory speech, Taylor praised Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, the two stars of the music video for “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version).” Later that evening, while accepting the VOTY, Taylor declared that her 10th studio album would be released in October (more on that here).

The singer-songwriter, who shared second place with Lil Nas X and Harry Styles, has three victories. Harry accepted his Moon Person award from New York City’s Madison Square Garden, where he is now doing a 15-night residency, and went on to win the Best Pop, Best Cinematography, and Album of the Year VMAs. For his song “Industry Baby” with Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X won Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction, and Best Visual Effects.

With 4 victories, Jack was the night’s top prizewinner. He received 3 awards for his work on “Industry Baby” and another for his “Song of the Summer,” “First Class.” Below is a list of every winner in every category for the VMAs 2022.
