Despite everything that’s happening, the show must go on. And the MTV VMA’s is the latest awards show to take on the challenge of hosting a ceremony in the midst of the pandemic. While the event didn’t take place in a large crowded arena as it did in previous years, the VMA’s aired lived on MTV last evening and was filmed throughout all five boroughs in New York City.

Hosted by Keke Palmer , with performances from stars like Chole x Halle and The Weeknd, the show came as close to the standard VMAs as possible. Some of our favorite A-listers even posed in front of a VMA step-and-repeat including Doja Cat, who also performed and took home four moon men.

While many celebrities use the VMAs to sport cheeky fashion moments, Doja Cat utilized her at-home space to do the same. The “Like That” songwriter sported a SS20 crystalized Ready-To-Wear Versace mini dress featuring a deep v-cut and spaghetti straps and encrusted with red flowers. Doja synchronized her look with a pink smokey eye, slick back braid and an armful of smiley face bangles.

Doja Cat faced backlash a few months ago after a she was outed for allegedly visiting racist chatrooms, however after what seemed to be a sincere apology many fans were able to let her clear talent win them over. With her performance and wins Sunday evening, the L.A.–based talent let us know she is here to stay.
