Lauren: We forgot to thank the fans, so…thank you, fans. We were so nervous, we’re so sorry.

Dinah: We dedicate this to our fans. Our Harmonizers are the best.

On their reaction to winning:
Normani: Honestly, we didn’t even expect to win. We were in the category with Beyonce, Rihanna…it’s just such an honor to even be in that category with those people that we even look up to, so it’s crazy that we actually won.

Dinah: I danced [upon hearing the group’s name called]…I started reminiscing back to all the hard work that we’ve done together, it’s been so long. It’s been such a journey for us four [sic]. The fact that we’re on tour, and we come to the VMAs, and we win two awards, this is so amazing.

Ally: I screamed and I cried [upon learning they won]. It’s a VMA. It’s so iconic, and it’s historic for music.

On their collaborators:
Camila: To share that moment with Ty Dolla $ign was amazing. He is the best, ever. To be able to kind of, arm and arm, go on stage with him and kind of share that moment together was amazing.”

Normani: Congratulations to Director X, as well.

Ally: You [Director X] helped us! He had a vision, and he executed it so amazingly. We did it together!

On presenting DNCE with the Best New Artist award:

Ally: It was crazy because three years ago, we were nominated for Best New Artist. Or two years ago, whatever, however long ago it was. And, now, fast forward in time, today we’re presenting it. Oh my God! And DNCE won, congratulations to them.

Camila: They rock…I voted for them!

On what happens now:

Dinah: We’re about to go party right now. [We need to have] chicken and waffles – we deserve that. [And] hot dogs.

Normani: We’re about to get turnt.

On what happens after tonight:
Camila: We’re on tour right now, and we’re kind of halfway through the North American tour, and then we’re going to go to Europe and have some more fun.
