Showdowns aside, much of the drama on the night revolved around the fashion.

Country singer Kacey Musgraves wore purple, feathered Valentino Couture for the event, while Kardashian opted for a leather, mini Olivier Theyskens design and Fox wore a sheer Mugler gown.

In keeping with more traditional red-carpet style was Cabello, who wore pink and red Alexis Mabille, and boyfriend Mendes, in a white Mans suit.

A number of stars opted for vintage pieces, including Deja Vu singer Rodrigo, who wore a corseted pink 2001 Versace gown, and Madison Beer, who wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress that was also donned by Beyonce at the 2003 VMAs.
