The Video Music Awards, also known as VMAs, have been hosted by MTV, which has also broadcast the ceremony live every year since 1984. They began as an alternative to the Grammy’s intention to target the youngest demographic in MTV viewers and focus. Its celebration and recognition is based more on the contributions and achievements of pop culture that appeal to younger adults than on artistic merit in the grand scheme of the music industry as it appeals to industry professionals. At the Video Music Awards debut, Bette Midler and Dan Akroyd were the hosts, and Madonna delivered a daring delivery of her hit Like A Virgin, dressed in a wedding hybrid bustier accented with lace stockings and a belt that read “Boy. Toy “as he rolled across the stage, setting the tone for the rest of his career, as well as the future VMA awards controversy. Since then, she has appeared at the awards show many more times and been at the center of many more shows, such as the Vogue performance in 1990, dressed in the image of Marie Antoinette in keeping with the 18th century French theme of the performance, while performing a choreographed underwear by showing off, being caressed on stage by her dancers and glancing at her dress, and kissing Britney Spears on stage in 2003. She had also taken home more MTV awards than anyone else. of the show’s winners, with a total of twenty so far. Peter Gabriel holds the record for the most VMAs won in a single night, winning ten in 1987 for Sledgehammer.
