While the year is now more than halfway over, MTV celebrated the best of what this year had to offer in music at the VMAs.

On Monday night, MTV held its 34th annual Video Music Awards. This awards show has a long history of being the dynamic and show stopping, bringing daring and controversial performances from chart-topping artists. Many historic events in pop culture have occurred on this stage, including the infamous kiss between Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, not to mention the “Blurred Lines” performance from Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus.

The show last night did not disappoint. Jennifer Lopez gave a huge mastermix performance of her top hits as she accepted the Video Vanguard Award, and both the “Queen of Rap” and “Queen of Pop”, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande respectively, gave a show that made the two worthy of their titles.

To celebrate the best of this year, here is a playlist of the best of the 2018 VMA nominees and winners.
