The 2015 MTV VMA's were held on August 30, 2015. Justin performed "Where Are Ü Now" and "What Do You Mean". Justin interrupted the song for one hell of a monologue that he gave while floating off the ground. He said:

"Life is a journey. Sometimes we battle, full of the unexpected. Sometimes we focus on our destination and forget to focus on that journey. But when we fall, it allows you to get up stronger. It allows you not to focus on your own understanding. Give in to faith. Believe in something bigger than yourself, and find your purpose."

Justin ended the performance by breaking down into tears, leaving even Miley Cyrus momentarily speechless. He was crying because he didn't expect they would support him, last time at an award show he was booed. His music video, "Where Are Ü Now", was nominated for 4 awards:
