For “Whatta Man,” En Vogue came out on stage to perform with them and DJ Spinderella. During a star-studded evening that celebrate female talent at every turn, it was fitting that the iconic hip-hop duo close out the show.

Post Malone and 21 Savage picked up the award for Top Rap Song and Macklemore performed alongside Kesha for their newest hit “Good Old Days.”
