The most deserving : Beyonce - Formation

it looks like she won by biggest margin. The video blew other nominees away

 

The least deserving : maybe Camila Cabello - Havana

I think NTLTC and This is America are way more deserving

I think Wrecking Ball is number 1, followed by Formation, Humble and Bad Romance. Least deserving is the one from 2018, and also yntcd is completely undeserving, i say this as a swiftie

Surprised that only MainPGs won last decade, no MemePGs allowed.

 

Camila is the most deserving one.

 

K bye for now, Sunshine. <3

Most deserving Bad Romance cause the video and the winning night were both EVENTS.

 

Least deserving between Havana and YNTC.

You Need to Calm Down did not deserve it. They only gave it to her because she showed up. LWYMMD deserved to win the year prior, not the latter.

To think about that, it makes Havana's victory is really least deserving

 

Look What You Made Me Do, no tears left to cry, This is America, APESH*T, God's Plan would be better nomination that year, and it will be very tight

Bad Romance and Formation were the most deserving. Havana is the least by far, probably of all time tbh!
