It’s great to be back! In 2018, Lopez received the Vanguard Award, but this time she returned to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the award show. “MTV, happy 40th birthday!” she exclaimed on stage. “Tonight is all about you and I must say, it feels amazing to be here in my hometown for the VMAs.” This year’s event, which took place at Barclays, is the first time in eight years that it has been held there. Lopez then went on to announce that she would be presenting the Song Of The Year award, which was won by Olivia Rodrigo for her hit song, Driver’s License. The talented 18-year-old singer beat out a range of other artists, including Bruno Mars w/ Anderson Paak, BTS, Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion, Dua Lipa and 4kGoldn ft. iann dior.
Ecstatic: MTV, a very happy 40th birthday to you! I am absolutely thrilled to be here in my hometown at the VMAs tonight, celebrating your party. It feels amazing to be a part of this special occasion.

Let’s get started! At the 40th annual show, Lopez had the honor of presenting the award for Song Of The Year. This surprised many, as she had been in Venice, Italy with her partner Ben Affleck earlier in the week to support his movie premiere of The Last Duel. They made their first public appearance on the red carpet while in Venice, but left on Saturday, September 11th, to return to New York City before the Met Gala on September 13th. Although there were reports that Affleck had a planned work conflict, it is likely that the couple will grace the steps of the Metropolitan Museum together.
And the award for Song Of The Year goes to none other than Olivia Rodrigo for her chart-topping hit Driver’s License!
Witnessing a heartwarming moment, the pair were captured in an embrace followed by Jennifer Lopez gesturing towards the audience.
Excitement was in the air as Jennifer Lopez shared some behind-the-scenes moments before her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards. With the hashtag “#VMAS,” she was pumped and ready to go. The talented artist was previously honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2018 ceremony. This year’s event prioritized safety amidst the pandemic, with face masks being a requirement for audience members. Doja Cat hosted the three-hour show, which featured performances by top artists such as Justin Bieber, The Kid Laroi, Camila Cabello, Kacey Musgraves, and Lil Nas X. To keep her arrival a secret, J.Lo opted for a luxurious sprinter van and skipped the red carpet.
