*NSYNC Presents Taylor Swift w/ Best Pop Award | 2023 VMAs

(SINGING) I’m doing this tonight. You’re probably gonna start a fight. I know this can’t be right. Hey, baby, come on. – Hello, VMAs! Over 20 years ago, we were just kids when we won Best Pop Video for Bye Bye Bye. It was our first VMA, and it meant the world to us. – That award validated our hard work. And, well, we might have won again for pop but– you guys remember that? – Little bit. – Yeah. – A little bit, yeah. – A lot has changed in– – I remember. – –the past two decades. But

one thing remains constant. A creative, boundary-pushing video leaves a lasting mark for decades. – Now, we just wanted to say, thank you, MTV and, especially, all of you guys. Thank you so much, each and every one of you, for always supporting your favorite musical artists. So thank you, guys. – Y’all ready to give out the first award? – Yes! – Well, here are the nominees for Best Pop. – Best Pop. I can buy myself flowers. – Miley Cyrus, “Flowers.” (SINGING) Write my name in the sand. It’s me. – Taylor Swift, “Anti-Hero.” (SINGING) At tea time–

Eyes. – Ed Sheeran, “Eyes Closed.” (SINGING) Oh, I keep dancing with my– Go where love– – Pink, “Trustfall.” (SINGING) It’s a trustfall, baby. My life! – Demi

Lovato, “Swine.” (SINGING) Rights, my choice! You sunk your– – Olivia Rodrigo, “Vampire.” (SINGING) Oh, blood sucker. Dance. – Dua Lipa, “Dance the Night” from Barbie, the Album. (SINGING) Runnin’, not one hair out of place. – All right. All right. And the VMA goes to– the unstoppable Taylor Swift. It’s me. Hi, I’m the problem. It’s me. At tea time, everybody agrees. I stand directly at the sun but never in

the mirror. It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero. Sometimes, I feel like everybody is a sexy baby, and I’m a monster on the hill, too big to hang out, slowly lurching toward your favorite city, pierced through the heart but never killed. – I’m– I’m not doing well pivoting from this to this. Like I had– I had your dolls. I like– – Marionettes, marionettes. – What– like, are you doing something? What’s going to happen now? What are you– there’s something they’re going to– they’re going to do something. And I need to know what it

is. You guys are– you’re pop personified. So to receive this from your golden pop hands is really, it’s– it’s– it’s too much. Thank you for the friendship bracelets. I love making pop music. I love making pop music videos. I also loved making country. I love slinking around different genres. And the only reason I’m allowed to do that is because you, the fans, gave me the opportunity to do that. It’s all just one big adventure. And it’s all so much fun to challenge myself to make music that’s different than what I made last. And I just

love you for it. But I really love making pop music. So thank you so, so, so much for this.
