It’s been a long time since the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) stopped being about music videos. Instead, the ceremony – held last night in Los Angeles – was about Miley Cyrus, Kanye West’s future presidential candidacy and Justin Bieber’s tears as he appeared on a big stage after more than two years of not doing so.
Cyrus tried, all evening, to top her last memory at this award show, that controversial 2013 performance with singer Robin Thicke.
To achieve her goal, she decided to go on stage with increasingly revealing and psychedelic outfits: dresses with large absences of fabric, plastic skirts and long dreads fuchsia dyed.

Cyrus closed the VMAs with the most elaborate presentation of the entire night, a kind of giant catwalk with transvestites in suits with huge eyes and, incidentally, musicalized by the group of rock The Flaming Lips.

The public also applauded the return of Justin Bieber to the stage. The singer performed the piece Where Are U Now nominated in three of the categories, and premiered her single live What Do You Mean? .
After being suspended above the audience and falling to his knees on the floor, Bieber burst into tears. Cyrus for his part, continued with his routine: “Justin, give me a call when you’re legal.”
