Shawn Mendes and The Tragically Hip Win The First Awards Of The MMVA Pre-Game

The iHeartRadio MMVA Pre-Game was packed with A-list celebs, incredible entrances, huge fashion moments, a must-see performance from Jessie Reyez, and a non-stop party vibe thanks to DJ Kardinal Offishall. Somehow, we even managed to squeeze in a few of the biggest awards of the year.

Much Creators Dan James from The Danocracy, Marlon Palmer from ThatdudeMCFLY, Michael Rizzi and Alayna Fender from MissFenderr were on hand to present some of the night’s biggest awards. Shawn Mendes and A Tribe Called Red both took home awards in one of their four nominated categories, with Shawn Mendes winning Best Pop Video for “Mercy” and A Tribe Called Red and director Kevan Funk winning Best Director for “Stadium Pow Wow.”

Rising star Tasha The Amazon scored the highly coveted Best Hip Hop Video award for her trippy party-centric “Picasso Leaning,” while musical legends The Tragically Hip took home the Best Rock/Alternative Video Award for “In A World Possessed By The Human Mind.”
