Taylor Swift makes HISTORY with Shakira at the MTV VMAs 2023


Taylor Swift had a triumphant night at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, following a slightly chaotic, four-hour long ceremony that ended abruptly before the big winners were announced.

‘I couldn’t believe it,’ she said, during her red carpet appearance.

Michael Jackson received it once

‘It’s such an important award. I mean, Michael Jackson received it once and so many other incredible artists, and I just feel humbled to be here.’

Going into Tuesday night’s (12 September) ceremony with the most nominations, Swift took home nine awards during the ceremony hosted by Nicki Minaj at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The 2023 VMAs largely delivered, save a minor glitch as fans watching at home were left confused when the televised premiere ended without announcing Swift as the winner of Album of the Year or Artist of the Year.

Tuesday night’s sweep means Swift is now the record-holder for most VMA wins in one night.

The pop superstar’s lifetime tally now sits at 23, making her the second-most decorated artist in the award show’s history after Beyoncé.

The 33-year-old musician also became the first artist to win Video of the Year four times, as she collected the prize for ‘Anti-Hero’ on Tuesday night.

The first South American artist

The night also belonged to Shakira, who walked the red carpet with her two sons, as the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer became the first South American artist honoured with the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
