Additional big winners included Zac Efron, who took home two awards, Jennifer Lopez for “Best Scared-As-S**t Performance”, and Dylan O’Brien for “Breakthrough Performance”.
Also earning special honours were Hollywood headliners Robert Downey Jr. and Shailene Woodley. Downey Jr. received the Generation Award, which was presented to him by his “Avengers” castmates Scarlett Johannson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo. The moment marked the first time the entire cast has assembled on stage in the run up to the release of Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Shailene Woodley was the recipient of the Trailblazer Award for her brilliant young career, including “The Fault in our Stars” and the “Divergent” franchise.
Legendary rockers Fall Out Boy shredded through an eardrum-shattering performance of their hit single “Centuries” before being joined on stage by white-hot rapper Fetty Wap. In his first major television appearance, Fetty blazed through his hit “Trap Queen”, joining the list of hip hop royalty who’ve collaborated with the Chicago punk outfit.
Charli XCX exploded onto a stage of dayglo pink for a performance of her hits “Famous” and “Drop That Kitty” with Tinashe and MTV Artist to Watch Ty Dolla $ign. The performance was directed and choreographed by Diane Martel, the architect behind Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s epic twerkfest at the“2013 MTV Video Music Awards”. Bella Thorne introduced the world to the trailer for the highly anticipated series “Scream”.
All the action unfolded in front of a beautiful, twisted pop art cityscape designed by Australian-born L.A. Street and graffiti artists Dabs Myla. The whimsical and weird set included a 27-foot-high inflatable cathead and a multitude of “Easter eggs” waiting to be found by the careful viewer.
