Austin Mahone shows his Artist To Watch Moonman some love.
+ Looks like Austin Mahone was worried about his health for nothing! In addition to kicking off the VMA pre-show with a tightly choreographed red carpet rendition of “What About Love,” he scored his first-ever Moonman for Artist To Watch.
+ Speaking of last night’s showstopping performers, Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were the big winners at the VMAs. Justin scored FOUR Moonmen, including Video Of The Year for “Mirrors” and the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, while Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won two awards, one of which was for Best Video With a Social Message for “Same Love.”

+ Taylor Swift, who sat next to her BFF Selena Gomez all night, won Best Female Video for “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Taylor dedicated the win to the song’s inspiration — a certain ex who was, ahem, also in attendance.
+ Selena Gomez nabbed Best Pop Video for “Come & Get It.” “This is my first actual Moonman, thank you so much!” Sel beamed.
+ Everyone was stylin’ at the MTV VMAs, but don’t take our word for it. See all the VMA fashion coverage at MTV Style.
Watch Austin perform “What About Love” and accept his award after the jump.
