On Monday night, we saw a whole host of A-listers hit the red carpet for the annual MTV VMAs, celebrating the best in music.

During the course of the evening, we watched some of the industry's biggest names bag some pretty huge awards as well as performances from several celebs, including Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Missy Elliott, and, of course, that steamy performance from Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes.

The pair took to the stage to sing their duet, "Señorita," but it wasn't really their vocal ability that had the world gripped to their screens, but more so the undeniable sexual tension between the 2 that not only had us all freaking out, but had many of the A-lister's seeing their performance in the flesh shook, too.

Some of the reactions are hilarious, especially Taylor Swift's who literally couldn't contain herself. Keep scrolling to see the best...


Last night it was the annual MTV VMAs.

The show, held in Newark, New Jersey, and, this year, hosted by comedian, Sebastian Maniscalco, celebrates the shining stars of the music industry.

This year's show strayed away from tradition.

Not only was this year the first time that the awards have ever been held in New Jersey but, unlike last year, when the show infamously went host-less, this time, we saw Sebastian Maniscalco cracking dad-jokes and tumbleweed-inducing "safe space" jibes while presenting the ceremony to us.

Many fans didn't think that he was right for the job.

Many viewers didn't understand why he was hosting the event, and, with several of his jokes branded "tasteless," it seems like people think that he simply didn't know his audience.

His opening monologue, in particular, came under fire.

Before wrapping up his opener, the comedian mocked the current social climate. "MTV noticed that we’re living in ultrasensitive times," Maniscalco said. "If you feel triggered or you feel offended by anything I'm saying here or anything the musical artists are doing, they’re providing a safe space backstage where you’ll get some stress balls and a blankie and also Lil Nas X brought his horse which will double as an emotional support animal. If you’d like to talk to your ushers they’ll send you back to where that’s happening." And, of course, the exact people that he was targeting took to Twitter to slam the host.

But, backlash aside, we had an exciting night ahead.

We all wanted to know who would be taking home the top awards, as well as what our favorite stars would be wearing when they graced the red carpet.

On the red carpet, we were wowed by many of the top stars.

There's no better place than the VMAs to sport a head-turning ensemble - there are zero fashion rules at this awards show. From stars such as Taylor Swift and Megan Thee Stallion rocking the blazer vibe, to Lizzo's head-turning red-number, the fashion looks certainly didn't disappoint this year.

The Swedish pop powerhouse gave us major princess vibes in this floaty, pastel pink gown.

But, music-wise, it was a jam-packed evening.

With performances from long-standing talents like Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, and musical newcomers including Lizzo, Lil Naz X, and Ava Max, we were in for an electrifying setlist.

And, of course, we got to find out who would be bagging an award.

Pop sensation, Taylor Swift, raced ahead, taking home the award for "Best Music Music Video" and "Video For Good" for her acclaimed "You Need to Calm Down" single - praised for its trailblazing LGBTQ+ representation. But it didn't end there for the star, who also bagged the "Best Visual Effects" award for her single “ME!" ft. Brendon Urie.

It was also a good night for seventeen-year-old Billie Eilish.

The genre-defying singer won "Best Newcomer," "Push Artist of the Year," and "Best Editing" for her hit song "Bad Guy."

The "Best Pop" award went to an unlikely winner.

Jonas Brothers beat the likes of pop princess, Ariana Grande; teen sensation, Billie Eilish; Taylor Swift, and Khalid for the sought after award for their single "Sucker."

Normani and Korean pop band, BTS, also won big.

BTS, who've quickly risen to pop stardom, won "Best Band," and "Best K-Pop,"  with former Fifth Harmony member, Normani, bagging the prize for "Best R&B" for her hit single  “Waves" ft. 6LACK.

"Artist of the Year" is probably the one you've all been waiting for.

And it looks like Ariana Grande well and truly came out on top, beating the likes of Billie Eilish, Cardi B, and Shawn Mendes to be crowned artist of the year.

But it didn't stop there for the star.

It looks like the pop sensation was in for a huge winning streak last night, also taking home the awards for "Song of Summer" for her latest single, "Boyfriend," and "Best Art Direction," for her popular single "7 Rings."

Another of the night's top prizes went to Lil Naz X.

...And you probably know what for. The star won the award for "Song of the Year" for his chart-dominating "Old Town Road" Remix with Billy Ray Cyrus.

But it seems that one of the biggest talking points of the night was Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes.

It looks like the pair made all of their fellow VMA celebs guests freak out during their on-stage antics.

The pair have recently been hitting the headlines for their major PDA.

Former Fifth Harmony member, Camila Cabello, and singing heartthrob, Shawn Mendes, seem to have recently gone from besties to full-blown boyfriend and girlfriend.

At first, people thought that it was a PR stunt...

Since the release of their number 1 single, "Señorita," the pair seemed to have really ramped up the heat in their friendship or relationship. But many people thought that the whole thing was just a publicity stunt.

But the pair can't seem to keep their hands off each other.

It's certainly not looking like a PR stunt anymore...

And when they took to the stage on Monday night, they gave quite a steamy performance.

It looks like their romance knows no bounds, as the pair almost kissed during their tension-filled VMA's performance, and it's left many of the celebs watching completely shook.

And we don't blame them.

It did prove for very shook-worthy viewing. Although, given the amount of PDA that they do on a daily basis, it shouldn't have actually come as that much of a surprise.

Nevertheless, celebs in the audience freaked out as they watched...

Including Game of Thrones star, Sophie Turner, who couldn't believe her eyes. So much so, that she leaped out of her chair.

Singer, Bebe Rexha, also couldn't take the tension between the pair.

The star turned around, unable to digest what had happened, before clapping and chanting.

But Taylor Swift's reaction is probably the best...

The pop powerhouse fully swore and screamed as she watched the 2 share a will-they-won't-they moment on stage. We feel you, Taylor, we really do.

Watch the full performance below:

You'll definitely understand why everyone was frailing about. The performance comes just days after Shawn was forced to apologize for racially insensitive social media posts that he wrote years ago. Keep scrolling to find out what the star said that's landed him in trouble and how he's responded...
