The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards is thinking Pink!
Before receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on Sunday night at the 2017 MTV VMAs, Pink delighted the crowd, which included her excited daughter Willow Sage (who was mouthing along with her mama’s words) and husband Carey Hart at The Forum tonight with a hit-for-hit medley. During the rousing mash-up, Pink belted out some of her chart-toppers like “Get the Party Started” “Raise Your Glass” “So What?” and “Blow Me.”
After the performance, Pink’s pal Ellen DeGeneres took to the stage and explained that Cher was originally set to present the edgy songstress with tonight’s award, however, Cher wasn’t able to at the last minute. Ellen said she was asked to fill in yesterday and agreed to give her longtime friend the prestigious award (despite the show happening at the same time as the Game of Thrones finale).
The funny lady explained, “I love Pink. She is my friend. I think she is the most incredible performer. When she said she would like me to give her this award. I was honoured. I said absolutely.”
