Eilish, who is currently touring Europe, could not be present to accept the award, but she sent a sweet video reaction to her fans. 

“I just wanted to thank you guys so much for making me MTV’s PUSH artist of the year,” she said. “Love you.”

You can see the video below. 

The 36th annual MTV Music Video Awards is broadcasting live for the first time ever from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. 

While last year’s VMAs aired without a proper host instead relying on presenters to keep the broadcast moving, the show took an interesting turn this year. MTV recruited comedian Sebastian Maniscalco who outwardly admits he knows nothingabout music. The host received a mix of reactions when announced in June with most heading to Google to search “Who is Sebastian Maniscalco?”

The VMAs also introduced three new fan-voted categories this year including Best Group, Best Power Anthem and Song Of The Summer. 5 Seconds Of Summer, Halsey, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Lil Nas X and more are nominated across the new categories and beyond.

While Eilish Grande and Swift lead the nominations, they’re joined by some of our favorites in the 1975, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, and twenty one pilots. Head here for the full list of winners from the 2019 MTV VMAs.
