Here Are Your 2019 MTV VMAs Winners

It’s time once again for the MTV VMAs, and so far, Monday night’s winners will come as no surprise. After Taylor Swift, riding high f the recent release her new album Lover, kicked f the show with a rainbow-spangled “You Need to Calm Down” and “Lover,” Cardi B’s “Money” took home the Best Hip-Hop award, surprising absolutely no one.

Meanwhile, the moonpeople for Best K-POP and Best Latin went to BTS (ft. Halsey) and Rosalia & J Balvin ft. El Guincho , respectively. But you probably already knew that would happen too. The only surprise the night so far? The fact Sebastian Maniscalco opened his monologue with a joke about his mother frying zucchini. Like all great artists, he changes for no one. We’ll update our winners list as the awards keep streaming in. Check out the 2019 MTV VMAS winners list below:
