MTV VMAs 2022: Winners announced at the raucous ceremony of shock cameos and surprise announcements.

The MTV VMAs were presented live at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Sunday, August 28.

Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Lizzo, Blackpink, and the Italian rock band Maneskin performed at this year's event, which was hosted by LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj, and Jack Harlow.

Taylor Swift made a surprise visit at the event and then released the Midnights album announcement.

Another (more contentious) appearance was made by Johnny Depp, who had his skull grafted onto one of the Moon Person awards.

Swift was seen happily rapping along to Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" from her place in the audience as well as receiving the Video of the Year award.

Harry Styles was nominated for a number of accolades, however, he was unable to attend the presentation since he was in New York for one of his own shows.

A short time after making his audience go crazy by kissing one of his male supporting dancers during his performance, Bad Bunny took home the prized Artist of the Year award.

The MTV VMAs will begin in Newark, New Jersey in 2022.

Welcome to The Independent's live blog of the MTV VMAs 2022. Good evening.

The event for this year will take place today (Sunday, August 28) in Newark, New Jersey, with Jack Harlow, Nicki Minaj, and LL Cool J serving as the evening's hosts.

Additionally, the organizers have secured live performances from a variety of celebrities, including Lizzo, BLACKPINK, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Italian rock band Manikin.

Given that Harlow and Maneskin both skipped the UK's Reading and Leeds festivals in order to attend the VMAs, their presence is a little contentious. I suppose that money, and primetime TV slots, speak...

Best-dressed at the MTV VMAs in 2022 predictions

Who will be wearing what on the red carpet, then? Due to Megan Fox's "bare" clothing from the previous year, I've seen a lot of predictions for them. Personally, I always look forward to seeing what Lizzo, the Maneskin crew (even though they got into trouble for skipping a UK event to attend), Rosalia, Bad Bunny (amazing style), and Billie Eilish rock up in. There will probably be three ridiculous costumes on Nicki Minaj.

Jack Harlow and Maneskin pull out of Reading and Leeds festivals to perform at MTV VMAs

The sudden withdrawal of American rapper Jack Harlow and Italian rock band Maneskin from the Reading and Leeds festivals are likely to have angered festival organizers.

The prospect of some primetime TV appearances at the MTV VMAs 2022, where Harlow would sing and co-host with fellow rappers Nicki Minaj and LL Cool J, drew both talents away.

Festival organizers made a statement on their Instagram Stories saying, "We are devastated to learn that Jack Harlow and Mneskin have opted to perform at an award event the same weekend they were booked to play Reading & Leeds."

Watch this space as we finalize some exciting replacements to perform at the Reading & Leeds Festivals this August Bank Holiday weekend alongside Arctic Monkeys, Dave, Bring Me The Horizon, 1975, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, D-Block Europe, PinkPantheress, Joy Crookes, Fontaines DC, Bastille, Willow, Wolf Alice, Glass Animals, Hybrid Minds, and many others.
