Most of last night’s MTV Video Music Awards was what everyone expected, pyrotechnics, stars who can’t read a teleprompter, and mediocre performances.
But there was however a glimpse of real talent when Logic took the stage with Khalid and a full string section to perform “1-800-273-8255”. It’s not the performance I was expecting to be impressed with but see for yourself why people are talking about it:

Here are some other live performances from last night’s VMAs that either surprised us, made us laugh, or just confused us:

Thirty Seconds to Mars & Travis Scott- “Walk on Water”

Miley Cyrus- “Younger Now”

Kendrick Lamar- “DNA” & “Humble”

Demi Lovato- “Sorry Not Sorry”

Lorde- “Homemade Dynamite”

DNCE & Rod Stewart- “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”

Noah Cyrus- “Make Me Cry”

Cardi B- “Bodak Yellow”
