Jennifer Lopez's Vanguard Performance
Jennifer Lopez was the first Latin artist to be honoured with the coveted Video Vanguard Award. During the show, she performed a medley of her hits, many of which sent a jolt of pulsating nostalgia through the hearts of older millennials everywhere.
She did "Jenny From the Block." She did "Waiting For Tonight." She even brought Ja Rule on stage for a bit of their 2001 song "I'm Real." It was a '90s girl's dream — and somehow J Lo has barely aged. She deserved that milestone moment, and it was really exciting to watch (especially as someone who vividly remembers worrying that Y2K was going to end us all).
