Justin Timberlake was the big winner at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, claiming Video of the Year for “Mirrors.” It was the first time winning top honors for Timberlake, who also took to the stage to perform a reunion with his former band ‘N Sync before being presented the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award by Jimmy Fallon. “Mirrors” also won Best Editing, while Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” won Best Direction for David Fincher.
Along with Timberlake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis led the VMAs with six nominations. They won three: Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Cinematography for “Can’t Hold Us,” and Best Social Message Video for “Same Love,” which they performed during the telecast.
Taylor Swift won Best Female Video for “I Knew You Were Trouble.” She previously won the category in 2009, when her acceptance speech for “You Belong with Me” was infamously crashed by Kanye West, but this year she delivered her acceptance speech without interruption.
The Best New Artist award was renamed Artist to Watch and, like Song of the Summer, online voting was underway until the category was announced during the telecast, resulting in a win for 17-year-old singer Austin Mahone for “What About Love.”
Best Rock Video was also presented before the telecast, going to 30 Seconds to Mars for the second time, for their eight-minute video for “Up in the Air.” The Jared Leto-fronted band previously won Rock Video in 2010 for “Kings and Queens.”
