Transcript for Stealing the Show at the MTV Video Music Awards
And finally, the mtv video music awards last night, the highs and lows, a flash, shock and spectacle and of course the big moment when the night belonged to one woman. ABC's nick watt with the annual awards all his own. Reporter: Sure, beyonce stole the show with a 16-minute marathon medley, but my big winners of the night -- for most ambitious costume change schedule, Nicki Minaj. One, two, three, four, with an inevitable wardrobe malfunction. But "A" for effort from Nicki. Classiest moment -- the rationally trashy Miley Cyrus sending a young homeless man called Jesse to collect her award. I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million run aways and homeless youth. Reporter: An intentional homage to Marlon brando sending a native American woman to collect his Oscar in '73. Cyrus bought Jesse a suit, a hotel room, and took him for a burger after the show. And in just 24 hours has raised over $200,000 for a homeless charity. Most classless moment -- kardashians engrossed in their phones during the Michael brown tribute. Bronze medal for dancing while seated -- lord. Silver -- Taylor swift. Gold -- j-lo, who also wins best dressed. Worst dressed -- Katy Perry and riff raff, an apparent denim-on-denim-on-denim tribute to Brittney and Justin's look way back in 2001. Worst audience reaction -- Rita ora watching Nicki Minaj. A face that speaks a thousand words, most of them unrepeatable. ? yes, beyonce was great, but upstaged by her pint-sized protege, a little blue ivy mimicking her mamma from daddy's lap. And a kiss for daddy. Scotching those rumors, with one pucker, that they were about to split. Nick watt, ABC news, Los Angeles.
