Demi Lovato Skyscraper Wins MTV Video Music Awards Best Video With a Message

Pop Crush has reported that Demi Lovato's hit "Skyscraper" has won the "Best Video with a Message" category at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. 

The song, written by Toby Gad, Lindy Robbins and Kerli Kõiv and produced by Gad for Lovato's third studio album, Unbroken, was inspired by a picture of the apocalypse, in which the world was in ruins, and among collapsed buildings, one skyscraper was still standing. 

According to Pop Crush:

"Lovato performed at the MTV VMAs pre-show, where the song was sped up slightly and given a more danceable instrumentation, complementing Lovato’s strong, heartfelt but still poppy vocals. Drawing even more attention to that voice? Her red lipstick, which put her mouth at center stage. She mugged for the camera as her performance closed with red rose petals flying over the stage."

Following her performance, Lovatos got her acceptance speech. “I can’t even tell you what it means to me ... I can’t even believe I’m touching one of these,” Lovato said.
