    Pretty much what i expected,,

  2. Tea4Daze August 31, 2015

    The winners were cool no real problems here. Glad some black artist got awards.

    Will never be here for Nicki MinKnockOff…thats a fake h** who I can’t wait till her career is done. Then again after that horribly lackluster performance and need to c00n for Taylor Swift (we know she would’ve ended her if she didnt). So it already is! Then she came for Miley after who spoke the truth, but can’t check your man who ended his career doing the same crap. Nicki you are fake b*** joke. And so glad that h** Rihanna didn’t win either!

    • Lily August 31, 2015

  9. Anne August 31, 2015

    Beyoncé has now tied Madonna. Will probably pass her next era.

  10. justme August 31, 2015

    Taylor won but didn’t win the technical categories. With all that crazy stuff going on in that video.. Anyway Beyonce won something doesn’t matter she won for a video she didn’t promote just threw it out there. We will take that. Bloop..

  11. MuscleTech/Nyc August 31, 2015

    Congratulations to all the winner’s especially Bey, she didn’t even try, and still snagged an award, a wins a win. Definitely miss seeing her grace the stage, and definitely looking forward to what she has in store.
