Tonight’s the night for the reveal of the annual MTV VMA’s which are the Video Music Awards winners. Now I know you are probably chuckling at this since MTV isn’t as known for the videos as much anymore and seems to be more about the Reality Shows but the ceremony is a popular one and it was awesome to know that it would be taking place at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Based on scheduling and that so little emphasis is on my own favored musical genres, I wouldn’t be in attendance but here is the rundown of the winners that were announced during the broadcast. As is my standard with such events, I have left the nomination names as well so fans can see who the winners were up against.
COMPLETE LIST OF 2022 WINNERS:

Greetings my friends, I am back nice and early this Monday morning to share with you all the winners of last night’s American Music Awards. They were handed out at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles during a broadcast last night. I didn’t watch the program myself as I was at a killer Metal show for the PiercingMetal.com side of the fence. Let’s take a look at who took home a trophy and to let you all debate the fairness of the process, I have left the names of the nominees in each category as well. Let’s get down to business.
