To surprise of media and fans, the winner in Best Rock Video category at 2016 VMAs wasn’t officially announced on MTV’s website for quite long after the show finished. The mystery is now unveiled: the award went to twenty one pilots for their music video ‘Heathens’!
The group had serious competitors, to say the least. Panic! At The Disco were nominated for ‘Victorious’ and many believed that Brendon Urie would take home the moonman. Urie’s good old friends Fall Out Boy hoped to get it for their video ‘Irresistible’ with Demi Lovato. Coldplay’s clip ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’ didn’t win them the award.
All Time Low also missed it with their ‘Missing You’ video but the band’s frontman Alex Gaskarth doesn’t seem a tiny bit sad about that: he tweeted to twenty one pilots this morning: “Massive congrats to @twentyonepilots ! Well deserved!”
