Shakira Collects Video Vanguard Award at 2023 MTV VMAs +Crowdsurfs

Shakira crowdsurfs as she accepts Video Vanguard award at MTV VMAs, performing a medley of her hits in English and Spanish.

Shakira stole the show at the 2023 MTV VMAs, held at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on September 12. Not only did she crowd surf while accepting the Video Vanguard award, but she also delivered an unforgettable performance.

Before receiving the prestigious trophy, Shakira treated the audience to an extended medley of her greatest hits, showcasing her versatility in both English and Spanish. The setlist included iconic songs such as 'She-Wolf', 'Te Felicito' (a collaboration with Rauw Alejandro), 'Ojos Asi', her verse from Karol G's 'TQC', 'Whenever, Wherever', 'Hips Don't Lie', and her recent viral hit 'Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53'.

As she took the stage to collect her award, Wyclef Jean introduced Shakira, describing her as a "one-of-a-kind voice". In her acceptance speech, she expressed her gratitude to her fans, acknowledging their unwavering support throughout her career. "I want to share this award with my fans, who always support me through thick and thin," she said. "Thank you so much for being my army and helping me fight all my battles."

In a heartfelt moment, Shakira also dedicated the award to her Latin American fans, both within and outside of the United States. "This is for my people. The Latin American people inside and outside of this country, thank you for inspiring me and injecting me with so much power and will to keep going. I love you," she said in Spanish.

The MTV VMAs also marked the first appearance of Stray Kids, who performed a remix of their hit song 'S-Class' and took home the Best K-pop award. Additionally, *NSYNC made a highly anticipated reunion after a decade to present Taylor Swift with the Best Pop award. Swift, in turn, praised her collaborator Jack Antonoff while accepting the Song Of The Year award, jokingly stating that they would continue making music until 2089.

The night was far from over, with upcoming performances by Fall Out Boy, Måneskin, Tomorrow X Together, Anitta, and more. For all the latest updates and highlights from the 2023 MTV VMAs, stay tuned to
