    This is what I’m talking about. Nicki needed a Cardi to come into the games so she could step her p**** up. She was getting too lazy and now I see she is improving on all fronts. Her performance was dope. Energy was on 100. Her album is also her best body of work. Now we just need her to work on that attitude.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ August 20, 2018

      I mean she pre recorded it yesterday in a room full of hard core fans I would hope she gave something. How many cuts and edits you think she did tho.

      • JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 20, 2018

        Hating ass how give her props b****

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? August 20, 2018

      Grandma Nikki should perform at BINGO night and Bingo night Only. ? #FLOP

    • Jayy August 20, 2018

      Yo.. the attitude gotta go. I love Nic but it’s getting real hard to excuse alot of her antics. At least the music & energy still good

      • !!! August 21, 2018

        Why can’t y’all just say it was a good performance and let it go? Why add in “if her attitude…, “if she wasn’t”, “She always…” just stop hating.

    Jlo has the best performance and acceptance speech of the night. I wish Cardi performed and Ashanti look s***

    First of all the nicki performace was pre recorded with all her fans there. So i cant give her credit bcuz she shouldve shut down the vma since her and her ass was there. Also this era is bad for her tbh bcuz queen sounds like a mixtape. You a barb? So what song off was a actual hit of that album.
    Its all good cardi, lil kim and remy ma will finish this year with bangers. Bet

    • JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 20, 2018

      Hating ass how give Nicki her props y’all come up with anything to try to demolish the QUEEN but she will always come on TOP

      • Just_blaze August 20, 2018

        Yeah on top of her fake deflated ass.

    • ??? August 21, 2018

      lmaooo aww you mad cuz nicki is still QUEEN and those other bums you named had to ride the subway back to their ratchet hoods huh lmfaoooooo

    • ??? August 21, 2018

      lmaoooo stay mad h0, the only thing those ratchets bums will end the year with is an increase on their EBT cards. and nicki will still be Queen LMFAOOOOOO

  4. Beam Me Up Scotty August 20, 2018

    Awesome performance by Nicki Minaj! Congratulations on Best Hip-Hop Video 🙂

  5. Rasputia Latimore August 20, 2018

    Nicki is the best performance posted so far and it is only fitting that she perform since she just released a new album and this is taped in NYC . Yall know i aint wasting my time watching videos of these little white “artists” trynna carry a tune.

  6. Vaughn August 20, 2018

    Will someone Please explain that fool travis scott boring performance? WTH was that ish! Very boring messy show so far

    • madbrax August 20, 2018

      Dj Khaled said it was going down as the best performance in mtv history hahahaha that was so f****** lame. maybe most boring performance in mtv history

  7. DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? August 20, 2018

    Grandma Nikki should perform at BINGO night and Bingo night Only. ? GARBAGE ?

    • madbrax August 20, 2018

      great performance. go back to eating your ho hos

    • ??? August 21, 2018

      lmaoooo fatso is mad cuz camel & roach couldnt buy any awards this year for that FLOP album that disappeared without a trace lmfaoooooooo

  8. Caleb August 20, 2018

    Nicki’s performance was actually good. A big improvement over that mess at the BET awards.

  9. eric August 20, 2018

    Jennifer is undeniably amazing. She was constantly moving and never lost energy. That was the best medley ever, even better than my favorite Janet Jackson.

    • SMH August 21, 2018

      Lmao JLo was good, but lets not get carried away here.

  10. Jeans August 20, 2018

    Jlo acted like she just received a Pulitzer prize. Speech was waaay to long!

  11. Ajm265 August 20, 2018

    Nicki did amazing prerecorded or not. The girl go have 1000s number ones and y’all would find away to bring her down. Black people we gotta do better there is room for all them.

  12. Intro August 20, 2018

    I gotta give Nicki props for staying that “Normani is that b*tch!” During her acceptance speech.

  13. eric August 20, 2018

    Who is picking these people to do artist tributes? Christina singing Whitney last year or whenever that was and now Madonna giving the most selfish and most long-winded story in history as a tribute to Aretha? Just terrible. If you want to honor Aretha, call Jazmine Sullivan, Jill Scott or Tamia to actually SING!

  14. KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) August 20, 2018

    Of course its prerecorded. She learned her lesson after that messy ass bet performance lol

  15. Keith August 20, 2018

    That show was trash. Ariana started strong but went nowhere…Seen one Jennifer, seen ‘em all. She’s a hard worker, though. Aerosmith was anti-climactic. Snoozefest….

  16. Sean August 21, 2018

    Ariana Grande always holds back…but tonight she surprised me, so glad she’s in love, that was her best performance…Nicki slayed that s***

  17. Sweetnothings78 August 21, 2018

    JLO is pure perfection! Never ever disappoints!

  18. xyz August 21, 2018

    Ew Travis Scott is really disgusting

  19. SMH August 21, 2018

    Best of the night were Nicki and JLo. They gave energetic performances and neither one missed a beat.

  20. Realtalk August 21, 2018

    What the hell was this MTV this was one of the worst awards shows that was presented to the public. The tribute to Ms. Aretha Franklin (R.I.P.) was not a real true tribute why did y’all aloud that to take place and not aloud a few singers to tribute her well like maybe Fantasia Yolanda Adams Jennifer Hudson. Truly disappointed and it came off disrespectful

  21. Francis August 21, 2018

    I hate to say it, but I’m done with the VMAs, this was so lackluster, I mean, Nicki and Ari did a good job, J.Lo slayed (though she could do something new, she basically put together bits and pieces of her Vegas show), but the performances were so boring and don’t even make me talk about the winners (Camilla, I like you girl, but enjoy your 15 minutes, your label will stop buying u things one day).

  22. pat August 21, 2018

    cute performance.. consistent as always…i just don’t feel like i’m watching anyone special or iconic when i’m watching jlo

  23. stan August 21, 2018

    j-lo slayed.

    that is all.
