    I wonder if TROLLmine will be working the corner afterwards since the shows in Jersey and the prudential center is down the block from her(his) project building.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? August 26, 2019

      U always are wondering about this TROLLmine character. Im convinced u are TROLLmine dude!

    • Andrew August 27, 2019

      Omg i love performances, reminds that there’s Beyoncé once in a century ???

  2. HavanaONana August 26, 2019

    Taylor and Camila are just pure❤️❤️❤️???????????????

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? August 26, 2019

      They bored me. I liked Missy’s performance. The rest so far were boring! Where is Normani? I will have to watch her performance online cause i already turned the channel after the best performer Missy performed!

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? August 26, 2019

        Normani was good but she was lip synching. With the right song she could be a big star. I dont think Motivation is that song. Its a cute song but for a new artist she needs a hit song.

      • Kix August 27, 2019

        Normani was clearly not lip syncing.

    • Oh plz August 26, 2019

      HavanaONana is Clarkson’s new handle. We know it’s you, asshole.

  3. Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 26, 2019

    Lizzo killed it!

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? August 26, 2019

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? August 26, 2019

      That was wack and gross. Big whale cant even breathe. She should diet or get gastric sleeve. Diabetes and heart disease aint cute!

      • Beyhives August 27, 2019

        Damn u are mean?

  5. ERIC August 26, 2019

    The true Lizzo tried to come out tonight; she was meant to be a phenomenal gospel artist and no one can convince me otherwise.

    • Holliewuudd August 26, 2019

      She was about to take it to church!

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? August 26, 2019

      She cant sing.

  6. SMH August 26, 2019

    Show is HORRIBLE. Missy is the only performance I remember, and even that was meh. Normani better come hard lol.

      Lil Nas was lip syncing for dear life.
      Missy was ?????????! Amazing performance

      • SMH August 26, 2019

    • Beyhives August 27, 2019

      SMH whatchu know about horrible? Stop talking yo from da hood and u ain’t have right to complain it’s horrible

      • SMH August 27, 2019

        Um, learn how to speak proper english before responding to me. The show was HORRIBLE, just like your hood grammar.

  7. Overdose August 26, 2019

    Lizzo should be opening instead of Taylor dry performance!
    Lizzo killin it with 2 songs from 2016!!!

  8. Lizzostan August 26, 2019

    Missy and Lizzo performances were EVERYTHING!!!! Nicki could NEVER!!!!

  9. Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 26, 2019

    Nobody is topping missy. She murdered that

  10. Clarkson August 26, 2019

    Camila stole the show. so romantic and soft. Serving us vocals. U can’t tell me shawn Mendes isnt gay. Zero chemistry with s*** Camila

    • Jeans August 26, 2019

      Normani was ok, kinda boring! Expected more!

      • Holliewuudd August 26, 2019

        Agreed. I feel like I expected more. She did great though. I so want her to win! I love her so much, I just feel like her 1st performance should’ve been a little more iconic.

      • SMH August 26, 2019

        Yeah, it was cute, but I was expecting bigger.

      • Beyhives August 27, 2019

        Stop shaving ugly ass nomani down our throat, bot cute guys not cute

    • gina August 26, 2019

      Gurl stop lying, Camila was like watching paint dry with her goat vocals and gay fake boyfriend, that’s why that host made fun of him. and nobody is talking about her on Twitter.

    • I love big black c** August 27, 2019

      She already cracked her voice when she opened her mouth to start singing……. lol. At least she singing live unlike that cheap Beyoncé wannabe

  11. Bleh August 26, 2019

    Missy the LEGEND!!!!

    • Jeans August 26, 2019

      Normani is currently #98 on iTunes. Wasn’t it top 10 last week? Damn. It fell way down. It’ll rise since she just performed on the VMAS.

  12. Caribbean Native August 26, 2019

    I e never seen a good performance from Taylor Swift ever ??‍♂️

    • Shayla Queen August 27, 2019

      She was one of the best of the night! Lizzo was terrible. I don’t know what people see in her.

  13. Adina… Adina… Say Adina August 26, 2019


  14. High Price August 26, 2019

    Lmao! WtH did Lil Nas team have him doing up there?!?! Smh… smh. Love the song but that performance was awkward asf.


    Missy SHUT the stage DOWN like I knew she would! JUST Epic! And Lizzo was …. meh…

    • Jeans August 26, 2019

      Normani performance should have been EPIC! Smh.

      • High Price August 26, 2019

        It was.

  15. Gee August 26, 2019

    So far the show has been a saltine cracker Missy Elliott killed the stage tonight. Everybody else was average at best.

  16. Lanafan1 August 26, 2019

    Normani > The Rest

    • HavanaONana August 27, 2019

      Camila >>> Nomani

  17. Nicky August 26, 2019

    Congrats to Normani for winning a VMA and a great performance. Killed it.

    No album out!!!!!!!

    Trending already!!!! Lmfaoooooooooo

    • High Price August 26, 2019


    • HavanaONana August 27, 2019

      Congras Camila for winning 2 VMA awards last night!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Yahooo!!!

    • Shayla Queen August 27, 2019

      I like Normani but her performance was not it. It didn’t keep my attention like a lot of the other’s.

  18. Jhall August 26, 2019

    I have to honest normani is not the next beyonce are yall serious yes she can dance but that’s about it! I thought normani was going to kill it smh

    • Kix August 27, 2019

      She did amazing. You should compare that to Beyonce’s first performances. NORMANI did amazing despite her audio being messed up.

  19. Kyle August 26, 2019

    These artists lack excitement & star quality. These shows use to have entertainment value & the artists(Even if weren’t that talented) had star quality & pulled u in. SMH I only liked missy, Lizzo, maybe Normani..

  20. YAS BIH August 26, 2019

    Missy owned the show her performance was the only one worth watching like I said she never disappoints.

    • YAS BIH August 26, 2019

      and she should have had more time to perform

  21. Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 26, 2019

    I like HER, Lizzo, Missy, Normani.. black girls carried the show tonight (when haven’t they tbh)

    • Shayla Queen August 27, 2019

      You into some boring ass b******. Except Missy the Queen.

  22. #TeamTinashe Stan August 26, 2019

    Norman did tricks and lip syncing.

  23. High Price August 26, 2019

    Normani SLAYED that stage! HANDS DOWN! No gimmicks, just RAW talent. Looked like she was doing it in her sleep it was just that flawless! Go Normani!

    • Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern August 26, 2019

      You can’t say “raw talent” and she’s lip syncing. She’s not singing. That is opposite of the definition of “raw talent”. But she did do a great job with her performance

      • Mark Jones August 26, 2019

        Can you do it… and I rest my case. If you can’t do it or do it better enjoy the show or watch BET .

    • Shayla Queen August 27, 2019

      Her performance was not it. I don’t see it for her as much as I did before that.

  24. Beyhives August 26, 2019

    Missy and Lizzo outshines Nomani annoying performance

    Taylor and Camila are so cute

    Shawn is hot!

    • gina August 27, 2019

      funny how the beehives are the only ones trashing normani. #insecuremuch

  25. Erica August 26, 2019

    Something was off on the beat of motivation idk ? I wanted normani to be the talk of the night but she won’t

    • Meme August 26, 2019

      Agreed with everything, something was off with her sound. I think the track was speed up at some points.

    • Kix August 27, 2019

      Normani was trending ar #2 WW so she was indeed the talk of the night.

      • HavanaONana August 27, 2019

        Really ??? I don’t think so. Shawn and Camila is #1 higher than #2

        I never really heard much about people taling about her

        People are more interested in Camila❤️❤️❤️?

        Actually Camila is #1 in worldwide charts
        #4 in itunes

        Meanwhile 5th Harmony 2nd lead Normani at #59

        #33 in Hot 100

  26. stan August 26, 2019

    it’s funny how missy upstaged all of the new artists…

  27. L’ORANGE August 26, 2019

    Lizzo, Missy and Normani slayed tonight. People hating on Normani but can you do it . Everybody else were bland boring no rhythm yet they hate on Normani. Good job Lizzo, Missy and Normani

    • High Price August 26, 2019


    • Shayla Queen August 27, 2019

      Of course your standard person is unable to “do it” but they’re not on stage at the VMAs so your point isn’t really a point at all. Fool.

  28. WRTW? August 26, 2019

    Rosalia is that girl

  29. Theman August 26, 2019

    Missy, incredible! Lizzo awesome! The hip hop mash up amazing!

  30. Biancacook August 26, 2019

    normani did just fine! she’s just starting and learning to be a solo act

  31. Jamon_84 August 26, 2019

    A few of the performances were good (missy, Lizzo, Normani, big Sean), some were ok. What bothered me the most about MTV is there constant turning the camera away from the artist and focusing on the crowd. S*** is real annoying. We end of missing some of their performance.

    • L’ORANGE August 27, 2019

      The cameraman did it purpose to take focus away from obvious lip syncing. All the performers were lip syncing. Awards are pre recorded live vocals especially MTV as they do it during sound check. They are pre recorded to avoid technical issues. If you notice no one had a close up shot.

  32. Paulo August 26, 2019

    Lizzo!!! I’m obsessed. Amazing performance. Missy was awesome too

  33. Kix August 27, 2019

    Normani was clearly not lip syncing.

  34. ~The Arcade~ August 27, 2019


  35. Lillian August 27, 2019

    If one of the hijackers had just showed up in the ER with cutaneous anthrax, which would not be “skin irritation “ or a single lesion and not been diagnosed and aggressively treated he would probably have died…

  36. Liam August 27, 2019

    Missy and Normani slayed the night ??‍♂️???

  37. Tyty August 27, 2019

    You can see why award shows use black stars for ratings and performances… Cause once the big black stars stopped showing up to these things the quality has dropped significantly.

    • Woah Vicky August 27, 2019

      What a sad racist youre. You can’t help yourself We all know you hate white people, from the language in previous posts.
      Deal with your hate please. Didn’t taylor teach you to control your urges to scream at people you hate ,

      • Tyty August 27, 2019

        ??? what did I say that was racist?? You are the one who is racist as you assumed my comment was a diss towards white people are you the only race of people on the planet?? You are not important enough to be a factor in my comment now take your mayo ass somewhere else… As for Taylor you bought her up not me….now who is the obsessed one tut tut…

      • Woah Vicky August 27, 2019

        Many comments before, you’ve use negative words to describe white peoples. You call clarkson a racist, but you’re no different. You should be friends. You and him are perfect for each other..

        Again, describing someone as a mayo ass, is talking about my colour. People use mayo to describe white people in a negative way. Are you that thick or just playing dumb?

      • Woah Vicky August 27, 2019

        A derogatory term towards white people.

      • Tyty August 27, 2019

        Blah blah in this particular comment of mine did I mention white people in any form??? The answer would be a big fat No!!! You crying about some pretend racism is not my problem. In actual fact you never seem to disagree with my comments you always deflect harping on about some topic that’s irrelevant. Go seek attention somewhere else. The fact remains I never mentioned white people in my comment you did. So the problem is with yourself not me.

      • Woah Vicky August 27, 2019

        You said my mayo ass? Why else would you use mayo? So it’s only racist when white people use negative words for black people? I can call someone a monkey and aslong as I don’t call use black it’s fine? Your logic doesn’t cut it.
        I only call you out for for being a hypochlorite.

      • Tyty August 27, 2019

        Black people have no relation to monkeys…white people on the other hand have Neanderthal DNA so…you calling me a monkey would be inaccurate so therefore not the least bit offensive. I’m Sub Saharan African nothing but pure human DNA?‍♀️?.

      • Woah Vicky August 27, 2019

        Then you’re basically the only black person who would have no problem with being called monkey. You don’t don’t live in the real world if you don’t think that.

      • Tyty August 27, 2019

        Are you a simpleton?? Monkey is racist term used by whites in America and Europe. Go anywhere else and that word as no meaning or power… Africa is a continent full of black people you think the word monkey means anything?? Or better yet go brazil or the Caribbean and call them monkeys. You’re extremely delusional if you think black people who live in mono-ethnic societies suffer from race inferiority complex. It’s only in America y’all bully black people anywhere else you ain’t ish….

      • Woah Vicky August 28, 2019

        Incase you hadn’t noticed, this is an European and American Post website. You admitted that the term monkey would be racist here. The rest of world isn’t relevant.

  38. Popeyes Chicken Sammich August 27, 2019

    Overall the show sucked but Missy and Lizzo had the best performances. Y’all better stop hyping Normani up before she becomes another Rita Ora????

  39. Moe.k September 8, 2019

    Missy was fantastic awesome show!!!
