Kendrick Lamar was in a class of his own on Sunday night at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. He took home awards for “Video of the Year,” “Best Hip Hop” and four more, but he wasn’t the only artist to take a trophy home. The night’s other big winners were harder to predict. But Fifth Harmony, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran shocked the world with wins.

John Mayer took the stage in Los Angeles for a stop on his Lady Gaga-style “Dive Bar Tour” sponsored by Bud Light. Alessia joined the singer-songwriter for a set of three soulful songs that helped maintain the mellow, laid-back vibes John works so hard to cultivate. Alessia’s silky voice was a perfect match for John’s paper-thin tone as the duo lit up the crowd.
On Instagram, Alessia shared a pic from the set, calling the experience “the bucket list moment of all bucket list moments.” She thanked John “endlessly” for the chance to perform with him. She also tweeted about the experience and John sent a little love her way, too.
Check out the duo’s performance below.

Liam Payne stopped by “Good Morning America” with his pal Zedd on Friday. The duo brought their track “Get Low” to the morning show’s summer concert series, much to the delight of shrieking fans. Liam and Zedd had the crowd eating out of their hands as they nailed the dance track. Liam might still be dealing with some leftover One Direction love, but plenty of fans seem eager to accept him as a solo act.
Zedd also dropped an “Official Tour Edit” video for the track late on Thursday night. The visual features Liam prominently as the two go through a photoshoot and hang out. There’s also cameos by Zedd’s pal Hailee Steinfeld and Louis Tomlinson’s collaborator Steve Aoki–sorry, Alessia Cara.
It looks like Alessia joined Zedd and Liam on “GMA,” but video of her performing “Stay” hasn’t surfaced online yet.
Check out Liam and Zedd on the show below, plus see the new video Zedd put out for the track.

The nominations are out for the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Fox, and it looks like one star’s Hollywood dreams are coming true. Bella Thorne campaigned hard for a 2017 nod, and she got one.
Bella is the only actress not from the show “Pretty Little Liars” who is nominated for “Choice Drama TV Actress” for her work on “Famous In Love.” Hopefully, it goes better than last year for her.
But Bella can’t hold a candle to Hailee Steinfeld, who’s up in the categories for “Choice Female Artist,” “Choice Song Female Artist” for “Most Girls,” and “Choice Drama Movie Actress” for “Edge of Seventeen.”
Other notable nominees include Harry Styles for “Choice Rock Artist,” Emma Watson in two actress categories and Rihanna for “Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Artist.” But the real fun will be the showdowns that come when it’s time to hand out the surfboards.
Sunday night, stars lit up Canada’s Much Music Video Awards (MMVAs). The stage was packed with big name performers, including: Lorde, Camila Cabello and Niall Horan among others. The evening’s festivities were hosted by Joe Jonas and Alessia Cara.
Aside from his hosting duties, Joe and DNCE brought “Kissing Strangers” to the main stage. The band also managed to get in some backstage shenanigans before the nights was over.
Check out photos and video of Joe and DNCE at the show below.

Camila Cabello has been announced as a performer for the Much Music Video Awards. The former Fifth Harmony member will bring her song “Crying in the Club” to the stage as Joe Jonas and Alessia Cara host the Canadian awards show.
Camila is also nominated for “Best New International Artist” at the show. Since her split from 5H, she’s had a run of high-profile collaborations leading up to her solo single debut. She’ll get a chance to show off her stuff without the rest of Fifth Harmony in the house.
Hopefully, she doesn’t get accused of lip syncing again.
Check out the announcement from Camila below.
