Worst: The Parade of No-Shows
A steady stream of couldn't-be-there-tonights made an already low-energy show feel even more tepid. Puff Daddy informed us early on that Drake – who would turn up later – was "stuck in traffic" after the Canadian star failed to take the stage to accept his Best Hip-Hop Video award. Unlikely Best Male Video winner Calvin Harris skipped the show for a show in the U.K., accepting via satellite, while the Final Five became the Final Four due to Gabby Douglas being hospitalized for a mouth infection. When Fifth Harmony and Ty Dolla $ign actually took the stage to accept their Best Collaboration Video statue, it was almost hard to believe that an honoree had bothered to make it to MSG.
