Lady Gaga Dominates 2020 VMAs

Sunday night's VMAs on MTV had a different look and feel, much like 2020 itself.

After the show opened with a dedication to Chadwick Boseman, The Weeknd then wowed with a live performance of "Blinding Lights." That song would go on to win Best R&B as well as Video of the Year, though in both acceptance speeches, he took a somber tone and explained he's more focused on justice for Jacob Blake and Breonna Taylor.

And that's about as close as the evening came to politics, save for the occasional reminder to vote and Lady Gaga asking us to wear masks as "a sign of respect."

She and her own collection of masks were seen early and often. As the night's big winner, she collected Moon Person trophies in nearly category nominated.

Gaga also wowed with a nine-minute medley of "Enigma", "Chromatica II", "911", "Rain on Me" (together with Ariana Grande, as we were hoping), and "Stupid Love." See more below.

Woman in Subway Sings “Shallow,” Goes Viral

Call it "A Star is Born, Subway Edition." British comedian Kevin Freshwater approached random strangers, challenging them to "finish the lyrics" to a song he sang. Results range from people happily singing along to coming dangerously close to being punched.

And then he challenged a woman in a subway station with "Shallow." At first she seemed reluctant, but after encouragement, let loose with a hauntingly perfect chorus worthy of Lady Gaga herself.

Shortly after going viral, the mystery woman was identified as Charlotte Awbery. She is--go figure--a singer/songwriter. And a very talented one, judging from the clip below.
