Best Music Video: Lil Dicky & Chris Brown - "Freaky Friday" & Childish Gambino - "This Is America"
Alex: "I mean, okay, if we're just going for pure comedic sensibility and fun, Lil Dicky, Chris Brown, 'Freaky Friday.' But if we're going for like a quality video that's like got a message, 'This is America.' I think that's fair."

Alex: "Boom. You heard it first, here."
Cutest Musician's Pet: Mooshu

Songs That Left Us Shook: Childish Gambino - "This Is America"
Drew: "I don't know. 'This is America', I guess."
Favorite Tour Photographer: Danila Lewis (The Chainsmokers)
Drew: "We're writing in one. Danilo Lewis. I can't honestly ... shame on you guys. I'm upset that you guys didn't nominate him, and we had to write him in, but I'm glad that you guys have the write in option. It's a nice feature."
