The VMAs got off to a crazy start right from the beginning. It was hosted by two of America's funniest and unpredictable comedians, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. During their first speech, Tiffany Haddish stumbled through Camila Cabello's name then threw shots at Fifth Harmony because Cabello was nominated for five awards. The two then awarded Nicki Minaj for best rap video to which the "Queen" clapped back on Normani, formally of Fifth Harmony's behalf letting Tiffany know "Normani is that b*tch!" See below. It got messy fast.
Not long after, Normani took to Twitter to thank Nicki Minaj for coming to her aid. MTV said "Everything can happen" at the VMAs and within the first five minutes they were living up to that promise.
