VMA 2021 – Best Moments

Taking place at the Barclays Center in New York City, VMAs 2021 turned out to be one of the most significant music award events. The MTV Music Video Award stage was set to fire with fantastic performance, but the acceptances speeches were equally influential. Doja Cat made her hosting debut, while Olivia Rodrigo and Justin Bieber inaugurated the performance stage.

Rodrigo has been hitting the top spots since her debut, and at the VMAs, she proved that she is not really a ‘debut’ artist. The singer performed to ‘Good 4 U’ and charged us with passion. On the other hand, Bieber made his first VMA appearance in six years. He increased the fun with his amped ‘Ghost’ performance. Speaking of firsts, Kacey Musgraves made her VMA performance debut as well. The 33-year-old singer lit up the stage to turn it into ‘Musgraves’ land. And, we can’t wait to get in.

Finally, don with the firsts comes a second. Twenty One Pilot’s Tyler Joseph announced in-between their performance that her wife is pregnant with their second child. And, we believe that was definitely the most precious moment of the event.

Billie Eilish gave a beautiful speech on how women need to be appreciated, while Kpop boyband – BTS- thanked their fans for winning three awards. The night ended after the rocking event, but if you missed it, you need not worry. Catch all the fun from VMA 2021 here.
