Last 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, Camila Cabello, and Lizzo.
And, of course, the show also played host to some pretty hilarious moments, including the moment in which John Travolta handed Taylor Swift's award to her drag queen lookalike... yikes.
Keep scrolling to see the awkward video.
Last night it was the annual MTV VMAs.
This year's show strayed away from tradition.
Many fans didn't think that he was right for the job.
The bizarre thing about Sebastian Maniscalco as host: his opener was full of bits (“being triggered”/safe spaces) &… https://t.co/Qdhe56yawI— MadBack (@MadBack)1566865274.0
His opening monologue, in particular, came under fire.
we’re 20 mins into the #VMAs & the washed up host has already made a ‘triggered joke’ & mocked safe spaces... 🙄— grayden ♡ (@grayden ♡)1566865210.0
But, backlash aside, we had an exciting night ahead.

On the red carpet, we were wowed by many of the top stars.
via: GettyThere'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.
Hailed as one of the best-dressed, Zara Larsson, stole the show.

But, music-wise, it was a jam-packed evening.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.
via: GettyPop 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 "Best Pop" award went to an unlikely winner.
Normani and Korean pop band, BTS, also won big.

"Artist of the Year" is probably the one you've all been waiting for.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.
The night also played host to some hilarious moments.But this one was the weirdest of them all... and, of course, it just had to involve John Travolta, didn't it?
Travolta is known for messing up his lines.Remember that time he managed to introduce Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem during the 2014 Oscars and, to everyone's shock, he didn't even bother to correct himself. It's a name, Travolta, how hard could that be to memorize?
And, this year, he managed to make another awkward blunder.
via: Getty ImagesHe, alongside Queen Latifah, was set to present one of the biggest awards of the night: "Video of the Year."
Prior to actually announcing the winner, Travolta made a self-deprecating joke...
via: Getty ImagesJust before they were set to call the winner's name, Travolta turned to look at Latifah saying: "I shouldn't do this! Because I'll just mispronounce sh*t and f*ck it up. You do it. You do it."
To be honest, he should have let her take the reigns on the entire thing.
via: Getty ImagesIt was all going well. Queen Latifah had it all under control, getting the crowd hyped up before announcing the winner.
When Taylor's name was called out, we half expected it.She made a real statement with her comeback. After all the controversies surrounding the ownership of her music, we were glad to see that she came back with a bang.
However, she did have some stiff competition...The category was filled with other star-studded names including Ariana Grande and the Jonas Brothers. And, out of all of the nominees, Taylor came out on top.
Her video for "You Need to Calm Down" featured many drag queens who also joined the singer on stage.The video included many of pop culture's favorite queer faces, which obviously set the homophobes off. But who cares? Because she won a VMA for it and we loved it. And, obviously, the cast joined her on the big stage to accept the award, including the drag star who portrays T-Swift in "Drag Race" Season 5.
And that's when things got confusing for Travolta...He had one job. Just to hand the award to Taylor. But, obviously, it's John Travolta, so he found a way to mess it up. He tried to hand the award over to the drag queen, Jade Jolie, confusing her for the real Taylor. Upon realizing that she wasn't the real Swift, he opted for a weird side-hug-thing instead...
Have a look for yourselves!Awkward, right? Maybe we should stop giving Travolta presenting jobs altogether.
And, obviously, this didn't go unnoticed by Twitter!

This is just another iconic moment for TV.Maybe not one of Travolta's best moments, but, hey, it'll go down in history with the rest of his blunders.
And many fans see it as another win for the LGBTQ+ community!
