MTV Video Music Awards

The MTV Video Music Awards (commonly abbreviated as a VMA) is an award presented by the cable channel MTV to honor the best in the music video medium. Originally conceived as an alternative to the Grammy Awards (in the video category), the annual MTV Video Music Awards ceremony has often been called the "Oscars for youth", an acknowledgment of the VMA ceremony's ability to draw millions of youth from teens to 20-somethings each year.

Demi won the award for "Best Video with a Message" for her song Skyscraper. She also performed a pre-show performance of her song Give Your Heart a Break and presented the award along with Rita Ora for "Best Male Video" to Chris Brown.
