On Monday night, the MTV Video Music Awards attempted to appeal to the growing Hispanic demographic in the U.S.

MTV tapped Hispanic rapper Cardi B to open the 2018 Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Monday night.

But the show's TV ratings fell far short of 2017's previous record-low audience.

Puerto Rican superstar Jennifer Lopez was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, while Latina singer Camila Cabello won Artist of the Year and Video of the Year awards for her single "Havana".

Other Hispanic stars were paraded down the pink carpet, but MTV, which hasn't played music videos in years, drew record low ratings for the 2nd year in a row.

According to Hollywoodreporter.com:

"Monday's show drew 2.25 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. Across eight Viacom-owned channels, it drew 4.87 million viewers and a 2.2 in the demo; both sets of numbers fall short of the 2017 VMAs, which set the previous low."

The VMAs suffered deep declines among its core 18-34 teens and young adults demographic and viewership was down 15 percent among adults 18-49.

Some observers blamed the record low ratings on liberal celebrities injecting politics into the awards show.

"Everything that used to be entertainment has now become an activist shout and scream fest. Who wants to watch that?" wrote one commenter on Hollywoodreporter.com.

    I haven't watched an awards show since the Michael Jackson days. I literally don't know who sings what these days.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    This was the weakest show ever. The music is getting worst as the years go on, I can't remember the last time I really liked a song

  • Soon2BWife

    Well, sorta OT go watch Cardi B’s opening and look at Off Set’s face. ? Also, watch when she accepts her award, she literally struggled so much with her dress people from the audience went to help get to the stage. Off Set just stood there. ? never seen anything like.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And it will keep shrinking ... Keep doing those rituals .... All that shyt will flop.. ..

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    JLo is so overrated. The only reason she getting so much attention is bc she dating A Rod. So many other ppl should h e got that Vanguard Award

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Let me go to the bank and see if they can loan me a fuk to give about this..I hope the interest is as high as mine is about award shows...zero.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • missmiami305

    U saw the video of her offstage walking past him and they both seemed bothered?

  • JENNYJONES1

    I GUESS THAT WASN'T HIM STANDING UP CLAPPING LIKE CRAZY FOR HIS WIFE? OR THEM HUGGED UP AND SINGING AT THE AFTER PARTY. OK........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    SO CARDI AND THE OTHER LATINOS WERE THE REASON FOR THE LOW RATINGS? OK NOT THAT THE VMAs HAS NO REAL VIDEOS TO AWARD AND THAT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TALENT SUCKS AS A WHOLE.........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Dee Moe

    Airing the show on Monday hurt.

  • Latisaj

    Oh Lord I'm almost surpassing the teen and young adults age!

  • Coy little wink

    Blame the low ratings on lack of performers that people wanted to see...for example Halsey was not nominated and she chose to skip the show as a result...her fans likely tuned out

    Also lack of cable...that shyt is so over...

    J lo...bish go somewhere please!

  • Soon2BWife

    I don’t know, I hope it was because she deserves a supportive mate. The moments I saw were not reflective of that. SN: I learned a long time ago shouting at peope is rude.

  • Waya Hedia

    This is all just a circus sideshow anymore. People didn't go to the circus for the sideshows. They were just there to funnel money form folks who were there for the main acts. Unfortunately, there are no main acts anymore. Just sideshows. And freak shows. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2f29a8149572058b2931f616fc3f633afc08cb057f306769d8c630cdc5baf7ca.png

  • Coy little wink

    She is super lame

  • Soon2BWife

    Who would you have awarded it to?

  • garrisonville

    J Lo wanna be hard so bad. she tries way too hard. can't tell her ass nothing now that she's getting that A Rod d*ck. girl go sat down some wur.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I pointed his odd behavior out before. There is something wrong with him. He is detached emotionally. Women expect to be treated a certain way by their men. Most men learn quickly, but Offset is a very slow learner. This is why Cardi is his 4th baby mama.

  • Lolly Asher

    Award shows used to be the only way to see celebs so called candidly. The only reason to watch the parade of deplorable shows now is to see which end of the ritual someone is (giving or receiving).

  • Yui

    Why was JLo given the vanguard award? She’s never contributed anything to music videos or music period. My opinion lol

  • WhooCares

    Me too ?

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao!!!! you typed exactly what my mind was thinking!!!!!

  • Ramcamedd

    New post please: Aretha didn't have a Will...

  • FukkFolks2018

    Puerto Rican superstar Jennifer Lopez
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Nah. Just born to some Puerto Ricans here stateside. Lmaoo Jennifer was born probably at Bronx Lebanon or Montefiore.

    Its a name for it but I cant recall. But if your ass born here you cannot claim PR'n. It pisses the island born ones off I think.

  • Trace da Ace

    Okay, the awards BEEN wack as hell for years now...first off because MTV and VH1 ( MUSIC Television & VIDEO hits (?) Television)..NO LONGER PLAYS MUSIC!! Hell I have not seen a video since BET stopped airing them....all these so called MUSIC channels....play more reality shit shoes than music! And they wonder why folks is over it....hell I bet JLo was the oldest performer up in that piece....what they need to do is go back to basics....start back showing videos and REAL music.....I thought Tiffany and Kevin were the official hosts...hell their asses was up for all of 6 minutes for a weak ass monologue that made no sense. They should change the name to the MTV Shit Show and Hoes awards......

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    awe Me likes Jenny ?.. . Always have

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont like JHo ass. God knows I do not. But we not gonna sit up here and act like Jenny aint sold a shitload of albums in two different languages no less, has blockbuster sell out tours, a Vegas residency, and aint had box office hits. Hell why the hell did Pink win Video Vanguard last year? the fukk has SHE done?

  • FukkFolks2018

    And you know I have always NOT but I aint gonna front on that lady. Jennifer Lopez works HARD. As HELL.

  • Elevated Soul

    First off...Music and just what passes for entertainment is just not good and many who are not liberal are tired of that ridiculous politics spewed on these shows.

    I watch very few shows because I don't want to be inundated with liberal politics.

  • Anunnaki

    Me either, ?

  • justlooking

    She ain't my favorite, but she did her thing.

    Her twerking was off IMO. But hell she can't be perfect.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I watched that J Lo performance. It was a mess to me. And I've always thought she could dance. She was extremely stiff to me. Even that signature backwards dance move she does was half azzed. It was like she stopped mid-step.

  • justlooking

    Get out my head, I thought so too. Age ain't no joke. One day, it felt like I needed a damn cane.

  • xenaD

    First of all jlo killed it.. second of all I’m waiting for master chef tonight.. third why didn’t manny win the next food network star (he was way more likable, his show will prolly b better)...fourth I only low key watched that dumb award show for some drama(was disappointed) & one last question wtf was Nicki Minaj’s performance prerecorded with her die hard fans if she was at the live show ? o and did she leave before or after she got that award ? Loll

  • FukkFolks2018

    She could have skipped that. I agree. But Jenny not bad as a dancer. At ALL. And I heard with my own ears...her ass been taking some singing lessons.

  • xenaD

    I’m a sucker for my ol skool songs I didn’t even notice her dance efforts or Watever I was straight jamming to my jams lol

  • Coy little wink

    Don't feed the trolls hun

  • Nicolep

    Selling records aint got shit to do with that award. It's intended recipient was supposed to be someone who revolutionized music videos.. I can't think of one Jennifer Lopez video that was memorable.. She got it because there really is no one left to give it to other than a few artist that are not really big stars like Missy Elliot. Missy Elliot has way more creative videos but we all know why she (a dark skinned black woman) wasn't chose over a light skin Latina.. But besides that bullshit the MTV awards been wack for at least the last decade..

  • justlooking

    She needed them.

  • Rayne

    Her singing is terrible. Yet I like that outfit up top

  • free

    my question is, are there no other VANGUARDS? d@mn, we have sunk to new lows in music.

  • justlooking

    I was like damn girl...Nobody was saying nothing, but I was shame for her. Her man was tickled....

    She was popular with the Hispanic/Latin culture after Selena...Kinda fell off with the whole Diddy dating fiasco.

    Mark Anthony really helped get her cred back up with the Latinos, because he is a GOD to them.

  • MissyJ

    I was with you until you said box office hits...

  • free

    oh, cause i was asking but i admit, i stopped watching videos a long time ago.

  • Reina1718

    I think the floor was slippery lol but im over jlo...

  • Nik

    Looks like we are not missing anything. I miss the days when I used to look forward to awards shows and music videos. The ET industry is so meh now. ?

  • Reina1718

    Lol i had 2 think back like block buster???

  • free

    you can hear quavo literally tell offset he's supposed to stand up as she passes by smh.

  • Nik

    Trust and believe the devil keeps receipts.

  • Trace da Ace

    yes!!! homegirl was hitting them high notes...I was like... get it!!! She struggled a tad...but she hit them!!!

  • Reina1718

    Yes thanks 2 selena & marc anthony

  • Reina1718

    It was a video vanguard award

  • Trace da Ace

    ok...I was suspecting...but thanks for confirming. good looking luv!

  • Reina1718

    One minute she hood & the next she puerto rican ambassador

  • Ryan

    Masterchef is one of my shows. Try to get some tips on there. Love cooking for my family and friends (and me lol!!) I will say I don't care for that midget judge though.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    That's because people watch via clips on social media. People don't want to sit through 2 and a half hours full of performances and people they don't want to see. I only wanted to see Nicki's performance and I was able to see that without tuning into to the awards.

  • Reina1718

    She going 2 keep hanging on to ppl who get attention too, diddy, marc anthony, arod lol

  • Reina1718

    Thats that lean...

  • FukkFolks2018

    Wedding Planner and Maid In Manhattan were number 1 movies. So was Ice Age. Both original and squel.

  • Reina1718

    She walked by her sis too she was sitting there with the pony tail

  • helpme2understand

    As stiff as a pair of heavy starched jeans

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is that what it was? I thought maybe those Timbs were too dam big. It looked like they were flopping off her heel.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    You know what... when Ja Rule came out I thought to myself, "Hell, they could be giving this award to him".

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah. She's never been able to sing to me. LOL...when she did that little holler and then stepped back like she did something. Chile.. I was like, "Jen, no one is going to stand up for that ish".

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah, maybe it was age. But, why didn't her booty move. And don't say muscle...

  • FukkFolks2018

    She is the first Hispanic to win that award.

    So Pink revolutionized music videos? Kanye? Red Hot Chilli Peppers? If this is true they been missed the mark and it didnt start with Jenny. And black women have won it before. Bey and Janet.

    Money Train was my shit.....she is in that one too right??

  • 100milesperhour

    The knocked knees ain't what they used to be. She could barely get up from the "Flashdance" slap the chair from the floor move. At least dance your azz off considering your songs are forgettable fluff anyway.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Selena one of our all time faves. I loved her in Money Train too and in Enough. Enough is my 23 yo daughter MOVIE. She loves that movie lol

  • Blaque Mahogany

    1. I heard Fantasia was going to sing at Aretha's funeral. I can't wait to see that.

    2. Alexxis Sky (one of Fetty Wap's bm) decided she wants to be a rapper like the other bm. She just released a snippet of a hook from one of the songs: "make that p.zzy purge on the first night". Idk even know what that means. I just...

    3. I heard Da Brat was about to file for bankruptcy because of the money she owes the cheerleader (for busting her upside the head) and the million or so dollars she owes a record label. But, I could have sworn she said on the RSMS that she already paid the cheerleader.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I forgot all about that scene. She literally got on the ground and smacked the chair and got back up. So disappointing.

    The whole time my little brother was like, "I told you her azz cant dance".

  • Soon2BWife

    Say this louder for the slow folks in the back, Auntie!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What?! Ja had some hits. He sings just as well as JLo.

    He had a nice little run before 50 came along.

    Blockbuster.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Love Jenny ?

  • freelancepimp .

    I got a vibe the day after that the media was trying to make award show seem way more interesting than it actually was. It was as if they were trying to convince people that they actually missed out on something.

  • Nik

    True!

  • Soon2BWife

    No, I missed that part. Just strange though. I am happy I’m not the only one that noticed. Not sure if you saw Jlo’s performance but ARod was chessing so hard his top lip disappeared.? What a contrast to Offset.

  • missmiami305

    Omg yesssssss Manny should have. I figured they were looking for an Asian winner from the jump tho. But, when they picked two I was like wtf!!!! He looked real bothered.

  • missmiami305

    The fact that he had his pregnant wife in such a hazardous environment says a lot

  • missmiami305

    I can’t believe Pink won. Hell, how she win before Jlo? Jlo been in the game longer. Wow!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Judging from these comments nobody wanted J. Lo to win. And they probably have no clue that Pink won last year. I dont even like her. But shit I might start. Love me an underdog.

  • TheOwley

    There is no music in the MTV. They died a long time ago, they just don't know it. Also, I saw the people and what they were wearing. Pure shitshow.

  • Kayke

    The award is to recognize accomplishments in both music and film from the person receiving it.... it is well deserved, imo. There is no other artist who is a double threat much less a triple threat. They gave it to Britney Spears already.

  • Kayke

    Like who?
    There is no one else that meets the criterion.

    "My God. what a pig. Actually both of these women were pigs." <-- So you, Sir Random Fvcktard, are calling Harriet Tubman a pig.

    "What an idiot. How many white christian Conservatives shoot around 5000 people a year in US cities?" <-- A lot. Check the police blotters in rural/predominantly white cities and towns. Or not.

  • Li-Wright

    Nah it's not that. Nobody knows the names or the songs...I haven't heard any of the songs or seen the videos....but I'm a much older demographic. Plus, it's summer. People are out enjoying the night.

  • Li-Wright

    I've heard Jlo mention In Living Color in her interviews, because the interviewers bring it up and she reflects.
    Anyhow, she may not be able to sing, but the same for Janet Jackson. They don't have what Wendy Wms called "raw" dog voices like Streisand, Celine and Aretha. They do more dancing and strutting the stage than they do singing. Anyone who needs a block-full of dancers to augment their performance is a "performance" artist, not a singer. And I don't think Jlo would put singing as one of her strongest skills. She started out as a dancer and singing augments the dance. She also considers herself an artist. So I would put Jlo in the performance artist category. I DO like her movies. I remember Anaconda (whew!), Roses and Wine, Selena, Mi Familia....in her earlier years she made a lot of really good movies.

    I just think at her mid-40s she's trying to stay relevant.

  • Li-Wright

    I have to look up that Aretha funeral. It's by invitation only. The local papers and TMZ are up on it....freep.com and detnews.com.

    Funny that Nikki Minaj complained about Travis knocking her off the #1 chart, when it was Aretha that knocked her off:
    Franklin was also the top album seller in the U.S. through the weekend, selling more than 45,000 total copies, led by the compilation "30 Greatest Hits," originally released in 1987. Next was the 1972 live gospel album "Amazing Grace."

  • dontgetblocked

    No one cares anymore. It used to be one or two people would dress like sluts (Rose McGowan --metoo victim). Now everyone looks like a whore. I also don't like to mix politics with entertainment. You can also go to Youtube to see the performances.

  • Chell T

    STFU for once with your inundated view on politics period. The ratings are down not because of "liberal politics". The ratings are down because MTV and VH1 are more about reality shows than music videos. ICan't understand why Viacom still chose to have this ridiculous award show.

  • IamAllnatural

    I watched the show for 2 minutes, was I included in the 2.25 million viewers count?
    I saw a piece of Jlo performance. Her singing is awful, reminds me of Gloria Estefan.
    I could only take a few seconds of loud mouth Tiffany Haddish & Kevin Hart. They both do too much, so annoying.

  • Chell T

    You and Elevated Soul are the same person. No one else on here mention politics except for you too.

    GTHOH!

  • Nik

    I remember the first video I ever saw, Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey".

  • Reenaface

    JLo winning the MJ award was a travesty and I can't believe that she would win anything over Mimi. If MTV really wanted viewers to tune in, they would stop boycotting Chris Brown and give him the MJ award since he is more deserving of it.

  • Reenaface

    I did the same thing on YouTube. I wanted to see Nikki and Travis Scott's performance. Kylie looked winter time frozen when she was nodding her head to Travis as he performed.

  • Reenaface

    Sure there are other Vanguard's... But!

    Chris Brown- Still being boycotted for domestic violence incident that happened ten years ago, among other incidents with women.
    R Kelly-Too urban theses days for MTV. Plus, he's been me too'd
    Usher-He has caused both men and women to pee Skittles because he has been burning people left and right so he's currently a health hazard.
    Jay-z- People haven't forgiven him for cheating on Beyonce. Plus, MTV has already given Beyonce her Vanguard award.

    If you'll notice all of these artists are black. Which means that in the words of the great Stephanie Mills, they want R&B and Rap music, but they don't want it from Black people. Everything is whitewashed and it's been done by design just the way that the elites want it.

  • Judge Mental Will

    C'mon now, the BET Awards have gone down hill too.

    ...or maybe it's just that I don't like much of the new music and the Artist aren't performers anymore.

    the pied piper could have been (is) the greatest of his generation. no way he will ever get an award for anything...ever in life...again. but if the award is for video, video seems kinda dead to me.

    chris could still be redeemed if he just stays quiet for a minute. hollywood forgives. but he can't be out here pretend-strangling chicks and looking crackish.

    oh ok, i had the wrong impression of what it was. i guess nobody IS left.

    I so agree about Chris Brown. I have been campaigning my wishes to have him perform at the Superbowl he is so deserving of it, ( did you catch JT's underwhelming Superbowl performance, Chris could've done way better than that). that and being awarded a Vanguard award. He's been quiet as of lately and I hope he keeps it that way. I hope that he watches the company that he keeps as well. I agree about the pied piper it's curtains for him, he went from singing duets with Celine Dion when she was hot to his name going down in scandal.

    he would be awesome at a superbowl.

  • Reenaface

    Yes! Especially if he opened the Superbowl with " Party" with a marching band behind him. lol! They usually announce who's going to headline the Superbowl around this time. Each time I hold my breath for Chris Brown to be announced.
