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.

Lorde’s sister Jerry could not have been more excited to get a selfie with Taylor Swift — and that her sister won Best Rock Video at the 2014 VMAs.
Will Smith, Jaden and Willow
Will brought the kids along to the 2013 VMAs to watch Miley twerk and stare in awe at Gaga’s“Applause” performance.

Three months after Michael Jackson tragically died, Janet took the stage to honor her brother, giving a moving performance of “Scream,” the single she and MJ recorded together in the mid-’90s.
The Jonas Brothers made their VMA debut in memorable fashion, taking over Paramount’s New York City backlot and performing “Love Bug” for hundreds of screaming fans.

Lenny and Zoe Kravitz
At just nine years old, Lenny brought his little girl to the 1997 VMAs, and even then she was looking like a little rocker.
