MTV VMA 2021. - Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo, BTS i Justin Bieber dominirali; Machine Gun Kelly i Conor McGregor izazvali skandal na crvenom tepihu

Sinoć je u New Yorku održana ceremonija dodjele glazbenih nagrada MTV VMA. Program je vodila Doja Cat, dok mediji bruje o skandalu s crvenog tepiha kada je zamalo došlo do tuče između Machine Gun Kellyja i UFC prvaka Conora McGregora.

Nastupili su  Twenty One Pilots, Kacey Musgraves, Camila Cabello, Ed Sheeran i mnoge druge zvijezde.

Justin Bieber imao je najviše, ukupno devet, nominacija, a odnio je pobjedu u kategoriji najboljeg pop izvođača i izvođača godine. BTS je s devet nominacija osvojio tri nagrade i to u kategorijama najboljeg K-pop izvođača, pjesme ljeta i grupe godine. Megan Thee Stallion imala je šest nominacija, no nije osvojila niti jednu nagradu dok su s pet nominacija došli Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo i Billie EIlish. Lil Nas X dobio je najvažniju nagradu, za video ostvarenje godine za pjesmu "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)" koji je također nagrađen u kategorijama najbolje režije i najboljih vizualnih efekata. Tri nagrade je kući odnijela i Olivia Rodrigo za pjesmu godine i PUSH nastup godine za "Drivers License" te je proglašena najboljim novim izvođačem godine. 

Rodrigo i Lil Nas X također su nastupili na ceremoniji, a nastup Lil Nas X-a neki su okarakterizirali neprikladnim za televizijski prijenos. Billie Eilish promila je nagradu u kategoriji "Video for Good" za pjesmu "Your Power" te u kategoriji najbolje latino izvedbe za suradnju s Rosaliom i pjesmu "Lo Vas A Olvidar". 

Počasna nagrada za globalnu ikonu pripala je Foo Fightersima koji su izveli presjek svojih najvećih hitova te odali počast preminulom bubnjaru Rolling Stonesa Charlieju Wattsu. Kompletan popis dobitnika po kategorijama donosimo u nastavku.
