J Balvin and Bad Bunny brought their music video to life. 

The reggaetoneros lit up the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards stage at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Monday night. The Colombian and Puerto Rican artists got the crowd on their feet performing their latest single, "Que Pretendes," from their recently released joint album, OASIS. 

The two hit the stage in inflatable custom-made cartoon costumes, surrounded by dancing inflatable animals, including a lovable dinosaur. At one point, they flew above the stage.
