The Video Music Awards, an annual awards show that airs on MAD TV, returned for the 15th consecutive year last night in Athens, at Faliro Sports Pavilion Arena.
The event honours the year’s biggest music achievements, voted by viewers of MAD television and this year saw a record participation in voting for the winners.
Singers, musicians, celebrities, presenters and pop-icons climbed the stage, presenting spectacular performances and like every year, most of the biggest names joined forces for enchanting collaborations, while receiving their awards.
The Red Carpet show was presented by Coca-Cola & McDonald’s, where celebrities strutted their stuff, highlighting their choice of style, including Elena Paparizou who stood out in her gold metallic leotard with sequinned mini skirt.
