Lizzo brought the house down with an epic performance at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Sunday night. The chart-topping singer delivered a stellar rendition of her hit single, “About Damn Time” and even gave her fans a taste of her new song, “2 B Loved (Am I Ready).”
Lizzo had the audience singing along as she danced onstage in a custom bubblegum pink Rey Ortiz ensemble set against a backdrop of dozens of miniature Lizzo’s. The “Truth Hurts” singer looked pretty in a pink top that had a plunging criss cross neckline, mesh panels on the sleeves and ruched hem.
The multi-hyphenate entertainer teamed the top with matching leggings that featured the exact same mesh panels on the thigh. Lizzo styled her hair in a high straight ponytail and kept her accessories minimal.
Sticking to a monochromatic aesthetic, Lizzo completed her look with chunky combat boots. The silhouette had several straps along the ankle with glittering buckets and sat on a thick outsole.
Lizzo had an incredible night at the annual ceremony. After delivering a powerful performance, she took home the Video For Good Award for her hit song, “About Damn Time.”
The “Good As Hell” artist appeared onstage in a black gown from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection. The collection featured puffy ringlets on the sleeve, a dramatic cone bra and curved hem.
