Madonna and Lil Nas X blow audience away at MTV Video Music Awards

Madonna has a long history of leaving the MTV VMA audience gagged from the inaugural show in 1984 when she performed Like A Virgin to THAT kiss with Britney and Christina Aguilera in 2013. 

At last night’s 40th anniversary show Madonna made a surprise visit on stage in a Burberry trench-coat before tossing it to one side revealing an eye-popping outfit that even had Billie Eilish on her feet, visibly gagged. 

Elsewhere in the star-packed show, Lil Nas X performed an astounding version of Industry Baby including semi-naked dancers and an impressive dance breakdown which you can catch below!

And once more for posterity, here’s Madge KILLING it in 1990 in a performance that’s been watched nearly 50 million times.
