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.

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.

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.

He, 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...

Just 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.

It 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!

Many fans couldn't help but joke about the whole situation.

It was pretty funny, wasn't it?

The confusion on his face when Swift's lookalike wasn't taking the award from him was priceless.

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!

Did you hear that? And T-Swift's shutting down the haters and the homophobes by doing the thing she's best at: by winning multiple awards. Go, Queen!
