Além das piadinhas infames de Katy Perry, a cicerone desse ano, o Video Musica Award 2017 assistiu à consagração de Kendrick Lamar (foto). O rapper americano levou seis dos oito astronautas a que concorria no prêmio da MTV. Logo abaixo dele vieram The Weeknd, outro expoente da música negra americana atual, e a própria apresentadora, cada um com cinco prêmios. Ainda houve apresentações de Thirty Seconds To Mars de Jared Leto, Miley Cyrus sem escândalos, Fifth Harmony agora como quarteto, Lorde em uma inusitada performance sem cantar e, claro, Katy Perry, com participação de Nicki Minaj. Confira abaixo a lista completa dos vencedores.
