Can you believe how awesome the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards were? From Taylor Swift‘s video debut for “Look What You Made Me Do” to Kendrick Lamar setting the stage on fire (literally), we were glued to our television screen throughout the entire show on Aug. 28 at 1am WAT! ! There wasn’t one moment that we didn’t love. But to see which moments were our FAVORITES, keep reading..Highlights from the event.. 

1. Taylor Swift finally debuted the video for her new song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” and fans went wild. Especially when they noticed various references to Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and more.

2. Lorde also had our attention when she did an interpretive dance to her song, “Green Light.” Instead of singing her song, she just danced on stage with some backup dancers, while wearing some sort of aluminum foil-inspired getup.

3. Kendrick Lamar kicked off the awards show with a performance that LITERALLY set the stage on fire. Not only did a dancer move around on stage while engulfed in flames, but other dancers later climbed a wall that was also covered in fire. So crazy!

4. Later in the night, Katy Perry totally dissed Justin Bieber, when she said her fake social media baby knows all the lyrics to “Despacito,” unlike another baby she knows. Clearly, she was referencing Justin, who proved he didn’t know the lyrics to his massive summer hit when he tried singing it at a nightclub recently.

5. When receiving the Video Vanguard Award, Pink gave an inspiring speech about her 6-year-old daughter Willow, urging her to never change. “We take the gravel in the shell and make a pearl,” she said.
