Caught the live screening of the MTV VMA held LIVE at The Forum in Inglewood, California this morning. It opened with Bang Bang by Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande which pretty much set the awards on an energetic mode.

The highlight and I must say the best act had to be Queen Bey herself. JAY Z and Blue Ivy presented the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award” to BEYONCÉ. Her performance was energetic. She thrilled the crowd with her medley of songs from her visual album “BEYONCÉ.” It was beautiful seeing the backdrop of her family life from home movies and what really moved me was reinforced messages of female empowerment and sampled a powerful quote and call to feminism from the prominent Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. 

This VMA also took us through a few quiet solemn moments with tribute to Michael Brown who was shot dead early this month. Miley Cyrus who won the the “Video of the Year,” had a former homeless youth in Los Angeles named Jesse take the stage for her to accept her award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the U.S.
