As well as the show drawing attention to some of the most successful and deserving names in the music industry, it also gave us some very memorable moments. Probably one of the most memorable being Jay Z and Beyoncé’s (aka The Carters) acceptance speech. The pair won ‘best international group’ and although they couldn’t attend the ceremony itself, they filmed a video message in an obvious recreation of their popular ‘apesh*t’ video, stood in front of a painting of Megan Markle depicted as the Queen.View this post on Instagram
