On Stage Surprises that Confused the Fans in MTV VMAs 2023

The MTV VMAs 2023 were nothing short of spectacular, with unforgettable performances and jaw-dropping moments. Olivia Rodrigo, the young sensation of the year, caused quite a stir during her performance of Vampire.

In what seemed like a live blunder, sparks began to fly, and the stage appeared to fall apart, leaving fans and even Taylor Swift’s bestie, Selena Gomez, visibly shocked. However, it turned out to be a clever transition into her new track, Get Him Back, from her latest album, Guts.

According to Billboard, Rodrigo swiftly reappeared with her dancers in vibrant Barbie pink attire to complete her set, leaving the audience in awe.

The night’s most talked-about onstage incident, though, revolved around the Video Vanguard Award winner, Shakira.

Some fans online even joked that they were honoring Shakira for “her lip-syncing skills,” one comment read. The controversy surrounding Shakira’s performance added an unexpected twist to an already eventful night at the VMAs where female artists dominated the stage.

In a night filled with surprises and unforgettable moments, these onstage antics will undoubtedly be remembered as highlights of the 2023 MTV VMAs.
