Sunday night the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards is blasting off live from the Forum in Inglewood, California. The show, hosted by Katy Perry, will celebrate the best in visuals for the music industry. The biggest switch-ups this year include the lack of gender-specific categories, as well as new ones to highlight the “Song of the Summer” and visuals with particularly strong political resonance.

Last weekend, Rihanna took the stage for a quartet of performances at the MTV Video Music Awards. The singer must have been overcome with emotion from the spectacle, because she is just recently taking to social media to share her thoughts on her big moment. Late Thursday evening, Rihanna mused on the honor via Instagram.
“#VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget!! I have the most incredible people in my life,” she captioned a clip of her accepting the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.”
Rihanna also gave a special thank you to rumored romantic interest Drake, who escorted her to the microphone.
