Calvin Harris Wins Two Awards At The 2016 MTV VMAs
The 2016 MTV VMAs was basically the Rihanna show with a side of Beyonce and seven whole minutes of Kanye West…
EDM had few moments to shine and Calvin Harris was the star of the show, winning two Moon Men. First was for Best Male Video for “This is What You Came For” Featuring Rihanna (in case you wanted more Rihanna with your Rihanna). He was the only EDM artist nominated for this category, so good for him! He won his second Moon Man for Best Electronic Video for “How Deep Is Your Love”. The other videos nominated were; “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” by Mike Posner, “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers Featuring Daya, “Summerthing!” by Afrojack, and “The Girl Is Mine” by 99 Souls Featuring Destiny’s Child and Brandy. We have to give it up for the nominees that didn’t win because we’ve been dancing to every single one of these songs all summer long.
While Calvin Harris dominated in every category he was nominated for, the audience came alive when The Chainsmokers performed “Closer” with Halsey. We all know Halsey has pipes for days but Andrew Taggart was definitely no slouch in comparison. It was the first ever MTV VMA performance for both The Chainsmokers and Halsey and a hot debut it was. “Closer” is a very appropriate word to describe the performance they put on…well that and “under boob”. You would never know these guys were newbies because they slayed the stage like they’ve done this hundreds of times.
That about sums it up for EDM moments at the 2016 MTV VMAs. If that wasn’t enough at least we got to watch Britney Spears crotch grab G-Eazy…so I guess there’s that?
