VMAs 2019: Winners in full, from Taylor Swift and Lil Nas X to Missy Elliot



Taylor Swift and Lil Nas X led the winners as this year’s VMAs, with the night’s top honour going to Missy Elliot.

The show took place in New Jersey for the first time, and featured an opening performance by Swift with two tracks from her album “Lover” – “You Need to Calm Down” and an acoustic rendition of the title track.

Swift took home video of the year for “You Need to Calm Down”, which was released as an LGBT+ anthem during Pride month. In her acceptance speech, she spoke about the equality act: “By voting for this video, you showed that you want a world where everyone is treated equally,” she said.

Lil Nas X, whose mega-hit “Old Town Road” spent a record-breaking 19 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, took home the award for Song of the Year. “This is my first award ever,” he said, unrolling a lengthy scroll as a joke ahead of his real speech.

Missy Elliot received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, along with a standing ovation for her medley performance of hits including “Get Ur Freak On”, “Work It”, “Supa Dupa Fly” and “Lose Control”.
