Who won this year’s MTV VMAs – and where to see them live

Here are all the winners from the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, including the ones you can catch on the road

Video Of The Year – ‘All Too Well’ by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift - All Too Well: The Short Film

Taylor Swift’s self-directed music video for the 10-minute vault version of ‘All Too Well’ is really more of a short film, and in ambition alone it was a deserving winner. The video, which starred Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien as dysfunctional love interests, also won the award for Best Longform Video, whilst Swift scooped up a statuette for Best Direction. Swift notably used her acceptance speech to announce that her tenth studio album would be dropping on October 21.

Artist Of The Year – Bad Bunny

Puerto Rican rapper and singer Bad Bunny won Artist Of The Year at the 2022 ceremony, becoming the first non-English language performer to do so. Although he recently embarked on a major tour across the American continent, he is yet to confirm a visit to the UK.

Song Of The Year – ‘Happier Than Ever’ by Billie Eilish
