Yes, very wealthy celebrities wearing over-the-top fashion is EXACTLY what we need right now, thank you very much.
I genuinely cannot think of an event more fitting for this moment in time than the red carpet that gave us Katy Perry as a chandelier, Lady Gaga's live strip show and Jared Leto carrying his own head.
It just feels... right.
This year's theme is 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion'. Nope, I don't know what that means. Probably a lot of... cowboys.
Before the red carpet live stream had even begun, we were treated to some wonderfully out-of-context photos of gymnast Nia Dennis performing a routine, which is cool. But the real unsung heroes are the people in American flag-coloured onesies playing trumpets in the background.
