The Artist to Watch trophy went to Fetty Wap for "Trap Queen" and the prize for Video with a Social Message was presented to Big Sean, Kanye West and John Legend for "One Man Can Change the World."

MTV also bestowed upon West its Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

This year's statuettes were re-designed by fashion designer Jeremy Scott. Scott doused MTV's signature Moonman prizes with color, gave them peace-sign necklaces and attached wings to their feet.

Scott, who told Variety he was inspired by the test-color bars that years ago appeared on television screens when broadcasting ended for the day, also wore a similar, rainbow-hued suit to the awards ceremony, which was hosted by singer-actress Miley Cyrus.
