Inside the 2019 MTV VMAs: Moments you didn't see on TV

The 209 MTV Video Music Awards brought together the biggest names in music Monday night, where stars and fans celebrated the year's most iconic videos with epic performances. From Normani's debut performance of "Motivation," to Taylor Swift opening the show, this years VMAs made for some of the most viral moments.

But from AOL Entertainment's access inside Prudential Center, there were also plenty of moments that weren't shown on television. Here are our favorite moments we saw from inside the 2019 Video Music Awards.

Gigi Hadid losing it over Missy Elliotts performance: As the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient took to the stage, the 24-year-old supermodel couldn't help but to jam out. We spotted Hadid losing her mind in the VIP section. See for yourself below:

Halsey and Bella Hadid dance the night away: The Artist of the Year nominee relied on the 22-year-old model to be her dance partner all night. The two were seen breaking it down during the live performances and were later spotted heading to the after parties holding hands. 

Camila Cabello sings along to every word of "Lover": The "Señorita" singer supported her BFF Taylor Swift as she took the stage to open the award show with "You Need To Calm Down," and "Lover." Cabello was spotted swaying back and forth singing every single word.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello walk off hand-in-hand: After the new flames accepted their award for Best Collaboration, we spotted the pair walking off holding hands, making their award show couple debut.

Gigi Hadid makes her way over to Taylor Swift during commercial breaks: The supermodel walked over to the singer and squatted down to whisper something in her ear right before she accepted the Video For Good award. Gigi Hadid then went crazy for Jonathan Van Ness as he walked out to present Taylor with the award.

Lil Nas X and Lizzo have a photoshoot: Once "Old Town Road" rapper returned to his seat after accepting Song of the Year, we spotted him and the Best New Artist nominee hugging and posing for photos in the VIP section.

Jonathan Van Ness and Adriana Lima both await cars outside of the venue: While we're not sure if the two recognized each other, the "Queer Eye" star and the supermodel both were feet away from one and other as they looked for their Ubers to make it home.
