Who Has Won the MTV Video Vanguard Award?
Every Artist Who's Won the VMAs Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award
Missy Elliot, 2019
Cardi B presented Missy Elliot with her award, making her the first female rapper ever to take home the high honor. She, of course, performed her hit single "Work It" (which previously won the video of the year award in 2003) at the ceremony, and she got a crowd-pleasing assist from an all-grown-up Alyson Stoner, who got their start dancing in the rap star's music videos.
