Summer favorites Lizzo and Megan Thee Stallion, who performed during the pre-show also sent fans wild with their arrivals.
New Jersey natives Queen Latifah, Wyclef Jean and Naughty By Nature were thrilled the show was being held in their hometown.
"It's going to be spectacular man. We've been waiting for this - to have our stuff in Jersey and perform with all Jersey, man. This is a classic moment for us," said Treach of Naughty By Nature.
Other notable names making a splash on the carpet were sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid, nominee and performer H.E.R. and Latin star Bad Bunny.
