Last night, we walked the 2018 MTV VMAs pink carpet with Cox Communications’ Maria Esposito. Whether it was Queen Radio’s Nicki Minaj, Love & Hip Hop’s Amara La Negra or KUWTK’s Kylie Jenner, celebrities showed up and out to watch Jennifer Lopez receive the Video Vanguard award and see how many moonpeople Cardi B was going to rake up. We spoke with Lion Babe, Joshua Bassett, Audie Cornish, The Miz, Asian Doll, Jasmine Luv, Madison Beer and many more to capture the evening’s excitement and find out who was rooting for who.

We also got some great insight on connecting from the stars of MTV’s hit shows like Catfish, Pretty Little Mamas, and Wild N’ Out. It was a true New York City media moment as streets were barricaded, pedestrians looked on to see the stars and everyone struggled to find their taxi.
