The audience went crazy at the MTV Video Music Awards with Tyler, The Creator, winning the best new artist award. He was the true show stealer.
Yo, I'm excited as f--- right now, yo, he said at Sunday night's awards. I wanted this sh-- since I was nine. I'm about to cry. This is for my little brother Earl.
The 20-year-old has already become the heartthrob of millions around the globe. To win the award, he faced stiff competition from fellow Best New Artist nominees, Big Sean (My Last, featuring Chris Brown), Foster the People (Pumped Up Kicks), Kreayshawn (Gucci Gucci) and Wiz Khalifa (Black and Yellow).
On a more somber mood, Amy Winehouse was remembered with a star-studded tribute to the late singer.
It was Russell Brand who started the tribute for her when he shared his memories of Winehouse. She was a genius, he said.
Tony Bennett, for his part, stressed on her contribution to jazz music.
Our family is honored that the VMAs are giving Amy this wonderful tribute, her father, Mitch Winehouse, said in a statement.
Scheduled performers in the Awards night included Lady Gaga, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Pitbull.
