Favourite Moments Of 2015 VMAs

No doubt if you have not been able to witness this years VMAs in full would you have seen highlights of the show. Ranging from Miley Cyrus’ vast outfit change, Kanye West’s long but pretty thought provoking speech and Twenty One Pilots’ amazing performance with ASAP Rocky there was certainly something for us all. Pulling out some of my favourite moments from the show, here are my top 5 moments listed below.

Justin Bieber performs ‘Where Are You Now’ and New Single ‘What Do You Mean’

It’s been a while in terms of new music where we have witnessed anything from Justin himself. The last time we saw Justin at these awards was back in 2010. Taking to the stage to perform ‘Where Are You Now’ and his new track ‘ ‘, everyone was on their feet; giving him a standing ovation at the end. With this reception, we can only hope for a tour/a new album very soon!

Fall Out Boy win ‘Best Rock Video’ for Uma Thurman

Being a fan of FOB from pretty much the start, it’s always a pleasure to see them given the acknowledgement that they truly deserve. Of couse, they aren’t a new band so when it comes down to continued appreciation and faith their fans have in them, it’ll no doubt come down to the overall success of not just winning an award but the knowledge that people like you and me will always have their back. Backing rock music is certinaly has been and will be the way forward.

Kanye West’s VMAs award speech

Let’s not forget (how could we?!) there is a possibility that Kanye West will be running for president in 2020. No matter what you think about him or his music, the speech he gave before this announcement was something that put aside everything for a moment and took into consideration that we don’t always get a chance to hear artist’s “deeper” thoughts; for once not being on the internet. Certain parts made more sense than others but we’ll take it for what it is and leave that there.

“I still don’t understand award shows,” he said on stage. “I don’t understand how they get five people who work their entire life to come, stand on a carpet, and for the first time in their life, stand up on a chopping block and be considered a loser. I don’t understand it, bro! I’ve been conflicted, bro! I just wanted people to like me more!”– Kanye West.

Twenty One Pilots Perform With ASAP Rocky

With award shows, you pretty much know the whole concept. Awards are given out, along with a number of performances. But one that I personally was not expecting was Twenty One Pilots featuring ASAP Rocky. Making it into my top 5 highlights of the VMAs is truly deserving as the performance was none other than energetic, crowd pleasing (for TV viewers too) and a fusion of two genres that works so well in every possible way (in my opinion). They’re always a spectical to watch and NEVER disappoint. Cannot wait to witness them live next year!

Tori Kelly Performs ‘Should’ve Been Us’

Truly one of the realist performance at this years show. Not to say the other artists who took to the stage were nothing to speak about, but with a powerful voice that filled the whole stage was memorable and you could tell all of her passion and love for music was put into that performance alone. As the saying goes ‘Less is more’, which is clear to see without the over-production or anything that would take away from the main focus, Tori Kelly. Too see a full set would depict the same emotion throughtout. If you weren’t too familiar with Tori before, you will be now! Also, ‘Should’ve Been Us’ is a great song!
