She was introduced by Cardi B, who called her a "living legend" and said the artist's music was the first album she ever bought.
"I promised I wouldn't cry because I cry every awards, but this Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award means so much to me," Elliott shared upon taking the stage, overcome with emotion.
"I have worked diligently over two decades, and I never thought I would be up here receiving this award," she continued.
The singer dedicated her award to "the dance community all around the world."
Taylor delivers epic performance in honor of Equality Act
The singer opened the VMAs with an epic performance of her hit song, "You Need To Calm Down," which she coincidentally won two awards for later in the night: "Video For Good" and "Video of the Year."
At the end of the singer's first number, the screen behind Swift and her dancers showed the words "Equality Act," referencing her support of the legislation supporting the LGBTQ community.
She then slowed things down with another hit off her new album, "Lover."
