2019 MTV VMAs: Winners List (Updating Live)

MTV's Video Music Awards took the turn up to New Jersey this year with show-stopping performances from Lizzo, Missy Elliott, Rosalía and many more.

Hosted by comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, the Prudential Center in New Jersey Monday (Aug 26) was a haven for big moments in pop culture. From Lizzo's girl power set to Normani's solo debut, there were plenty of moments that had fans on their feet.

The big winners of the night were Taylor Swift, who took home two trophies for video of the year and video for good thanks to her hit single "You Need To Calm Down." The next batch of big winners included Ariana Grande and Billie Ellish who were not in attendance. Grande took home Artist of the Year and Ellish scooped up "Push Artist of the Year" and best new artist.

Other notable moments included Lil Nas X's Tron-like performance of "Panini," Big Sean and A$AP Ferg's performance of their new single "Bezerk" and a special hip-hop medley by New Jersey's finest: Queen Latifah, Naughty by Nature, Redman, Fetty Wap and Wyclef Jean.

There were also plenty of firsts at the VMAs like Lil Nas X's first win for song of the year and Normani's solo win for best R&B video.

Latin power was also in the house as Rosalía performed with Ozuna and J Balvin and Bad Bunny gave a very creative performance of "Qué Pretendes."

Also during the Video Music Awards, Missy Elliott received the Micheal Jackson Video Vanguard Award and provided a perfect performance of some of her biggest hits like "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)," "Pass That Dutch," "Work It" and more.

Viola Davis, Jharrel Jerome, Tiffany Haddish Among All-Star Cast For ‘Good Times’ Live

Following the success of live reboots of The Jefferson's and All in the Family, earlier this year, ABC is bringing back another classic sitcom for a special holiday addition of Live in Front of a Studio Audience.

Good Times is the latest Norman Lear sitcom to be rebooted with an all-star cast that includes Viola Davis, Jharrel Jerome, Tiffany Haddish, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andre Braugher, Saturday Night Live alum Jay Pharaoh.  Additional cast members include Jerome’s When They See Us co-star, Asante Blackk, and Jamie Foxx’s eldest daughter, Corinne.

Davis and Braugher will portray James and Florida Evans, while Haddish will play neighbor, Willona Woods. Pharaoh is set to take on the role of the couple’s eldest son, JJ. Blakk will play JJ's younger brother, Michael Evans, and Corrinne will portray their sister, Thelma.

Patti Labelle and Anthony Anderson are billed to sing the Good Times theme song. Jerome’s role in the production has not yet been revealed.

Oscar winner Marisa Tomei and Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson will reprise their roles as Edith and Archie bunker for the latest live rendition of All in the Family. The weekly sitcom, created by Lear, premiered in 1971 and birthed the spinoffs, Maude and Good Times.

It’s unclear which episodes of the '70s sitcoms will be brought back to life for ABC's holiday special.

Live in Front of a Studio Audience airs on Dec. 18 at 8 P.M. EST.

A 'Moesha' Reboot Is On The Way

Moesha is returning to television as a reboot.

Former castmates Brandy Norwood and William Adam Young joined Sheryl Lee Ralph at her 29th Annual DIVA Foundation event over the weekend (Dec. 1) to confirm the rumor of the '90s sitcom's return to the small screen.

“We would like to know, would you like to do a ‘Moesha’ reboot?” asked Lee alongside Young. Brandy responded with a smile, “Yeah, absolutely. I’m here for it. I'm here to solidify that we’re gonna bring Moesha back.”

Moesha aired on UPN—once known as the home network for other popular black sitcoms like Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris, All of Us and One on One—from 1996 until 2001. During its 6-season run, the series followed a middle-class black family through the lens of an ambitious and ever-learning Moesha Mitchell, a teenager going through what many teenagers go through while living in South Central Los Angeles. The comedy-drama series was also known for its musical guests which included Big Pun, Dru Hill, Mary J. Blige, Silk, Soul 4 Real, and Xscape.

No word on what the reboot will be called, whether production has begun or if other former castmates Countess Vaughn, Marcus T. Paulk, Shar Jackson or Fredro Starr will be involved.

Unforgettable Fact: Moesha worked at VIBE Magazine as a gofer at the beginning of Season 5.
