VMAs 2019: All the big winners of the MTV Video Music Awards

It was quite a night in Newark, New Jersey.

Dozens of stars flooded the red carpet Monday night for the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, and the night featured plenty of surprises and a few unexpected snubs. Taylor Swift's "You Need to Calm Down" took home Video of the Year, besting stiff competition from Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" as well as Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Old Town Road (Remix)," both of which arguably made bigger splashes upon release.

But justice was served for "Old Town Road": It was crowned Song of the Year, topping Swift, Grande, the Jonas Bothers, Drake, and Lady Gaga with Bradley Cooper.

Two of the night's biggest winners weren't present to accept their awards: Ariana Grande, who won Artist of the Year, and Billie Eilish, who won Best New Artist, were both absent from the event.
