Instead of lining up at the arena, celebs are posing in front of green screens, with a little magic bringing the VMAs carpet to life. As expected, Miley Cyrus turned heads with her look, sporting a sheer dress with mirrored detailing. Host Keke Palmer dressed to impress, while Machine Gun Kelly went for a bold pink ensemble.
Check out the night's must-see looks below.
The "Midnight Sky" songstress rocked a sheer black gown and Loree Rodkin jewelry.
The "Rain On Me" songstress rocked a retro-chic blue leather minidress with two high ponytails and sparkling diamond stud earrings by Vhernier.
The songstress shined in Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira jewelry.
Palmer teased what was in store for this year's VMAs while speaking with ET last week.
"We're getting as creative as we can, trying to make sure we can incorporate our awesome audience that the MTV VMAs usually always has, but within a way that's safe for everyone," she explained. "So expect a cool surprise there. Then throughout [the show] we're figuring out all different ways that we can keep the excitement and the surprises going. Add elements to the show that people are going to be excited about and not feel, like, bummed or that the show is any different."
"I'm so excited," Palmer continued. "You're gonna see me, I think, a lot during the show, so I'm very excited to have fun ... you're gonna get all Keke. All what you see of Keke on IG, you're gonna be getting that during the show."
