And another Video Music Awards in the books. Definitely some surprise (but sadly not really) winners, and losers in this one. From One Direction beating out Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” for song of the summer (although they did make an appearance), to Selena Gomez winning Best Pop Video over JT‘s “Mirrors” but JT winning Video Of The Year (how is that even possible?)… And who the f*ck is Austin Mahone?

JT and Macklemore win 3 a piece, so congrats to that.

Anyway, catch all the live performances here, and check out all the winners after the jump. For me, the biggest part this was learning that EMINEM’S MMLP2 IS COMING NOVEMBER 5TH.
