The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards celebrated pop, hip-hop, rock and R&B Monday night — during the first ever VMAs in New Jersey.

Actor and comedian Sebastian Maniscalco hosted the show at the Prudential Center in Newark, where Moon Persons in 20-plus competitive categories were handed out. The awardsfest opened with a performance by Taylor Swift, whose latest album Lover just hit shelves. Later, Video Vanguard honoree Missy Elliott brought the house down with a futuristic set of new music and throwback classics.

Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello wowed the audience with a performance of their single, “Señorita,” which just booted “Old Town Road” from No. 1 after 19 weeks. Then in a tribute to the Garden State — where the VMAs took place for the first time in 36 years, the show closed with a performance by Queen Latifah, Naughty by Nature, Redman, Fetty Wap and Wyclef Jean — all Jersey natives.

Among the night’s big winners were Taylor Swift — who picked up the Video of the Year honor — and multiple winner Ariana Grande.

Below is a complete list of the evening’s winners.
