We were very excited to be attending the event for the first time this year, together with the likes of Gorillaz, Kendrick Lamar, and Richie Hawtin performing, so we sent editor Adam Turner-Heffer out to see what all the fuss was about.
What makes a music video truly great? The answer can obviously only be a subjective one but it's always nice to get it from professionals who know a thing or two about that special art form. So, that's why we asked them for this year's visually stunning clip recap.
It's recap time, everybody! While 2017 hasn't been the best year for many aspects of our daily life, the level of high quality musical output remained a satisfying one. So, without further ado, please enjoy our ultimate 'Despacito'-free ranking of this year's best tunes.
