The MTV VMAs (video and music awards) were held at Radio City Music Hall in New York this week.

Artist, Camila Cabello, was the big winner on the night. She beat out Drake, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Ariana Grande and Post Malone for artist of the year.

Cabello also took home the top prize – video of the year – for Havana. Havana was the second-most viewed clip behind Drake’s God’s Plan.

“I can’t believe this is for me,” Cabello said Monday onstage.

However, many say the night lacked the star power of previous awards with most of music industry’s top acts absent.

Drake, who failed to show, didn’t win a single award despite being the most successful musician of the last year.

During the awards Madonna gave a tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died last week.
