While the MTV Video Music Awards may all be about music, fashion and outrageous moments, it’s a show for the whole family as well.

Over the years, there have been quite a few memorable family moments at the VMAs, from Beyoncé, Jay Z and Blue to Kurt, Courtney and Frances Bean.

With Kanye West set to take home the Micha el Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year’s show, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that North and Kim Kardashian meet him on stage to hand over his Moonman. Just thinking about it gives me all the feels.

So in anticipation of that moment, we decided to look back at the 20 best family moments that will make you say “awww” from past VMAs.
