Taylor Swift and her 'Anti-Hero' top MTV VMAs in a show dominated by hip-hop, K-pop and Latin jams

Cheering fans in front of a wall of entertainment images.

Taylor Swift took home the top prize at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards for her “Anti-Hero” music video on a night full of surprises. Swift won four trophies on Tuesday's telecast, including song of the year, best pop video and best direction. As much as Swift dominated — she won nine awards — the VMAs centered on music’s global power. K-pop boy band Tomorrow X Together and Brazilian superstar Anitta premiered their new collaboration, the glossy retro-pop of “Back for More.” Shakira delivered a packed medley of her hits and accepted the Video Vanguard Award, while Diddy performed with his son before accepting the Global Icon Award.
