Cardi B wins big at MTV VMA, a show that feels flat

Camila Cabello poses backstage with her awards for Artist of the Year and Video of the Year for

The VMAs paid tribute to Jennifer Lopez on Monday night, when the entertainer was presented with the 2018 Michael Jackson Vanguard Award-the highest honor of the ceremony.

Honouring the best in music videos from the past year, the awards have typically been one of the most outrageous red carpets, and inside is no different.

The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker had been the night's most nominated artist with 12 nods, and she took home three prizes, Song of Summer for "I Like It", her collaboration with Bad Bunny and J. Balvin, Best Collaboration, which went to Jennifer Lopez's "Dinero", on which Cardi featured with DJ Khaled, and Best New Artist. I was always a person who was like, 'Why not?' I kinda had to forge my own path and make my own rules.

Cardi B, who opened the night by introducing a Shawn Mendes performance, was another big victor, taking home trophies for the Lopez collaboration, best new artist and song of the summer for "I Like It", which she'd recorded alongside Bad Bunny and J Balvin. She said "R-U-L-E" and hell, we're glad that was cleared up before tonight.

She then waved to the group down the camera as they weren't at the awards. But only Cardi B and Grande were on hand for the evening's festivities.

She described it as a "surreal moment".
