Pros: She slayed and sounded absolutely amazing, as always.
Cons: It was literally a sing SoulCycle class on stage.Or maybe thats only an extra pro?
Ariana helped MTV get the night rolling with her performance of her song Side to Side, featuring Nicki Minaj.
Like I said, Ariana sounded great, Nicki killed it as per usual, but the entire thing was done on exercise bikes.

Yep, it was basically merely a very glamorous and sexy SoulCycle class in Madison Square Garden.
Ariana and her backup dancers appeared the style youd like to think you appear while youre riding that exercise bike, when in reality you look like a drowned rat.
The SoulCycle motif did not escape the internets notice and many suspect this was a sponsored performance.

Ha, better luck next time, SoulCycle! You cannot brainwash me with your sneaky VMA commercials simply becauseAriana Grande looks fabulous on a fake bicycle.
Unrelated, but I just signed up for SoulCycle classes for next month. What, it looks really fun, OK ?!
