Jack Harlow, Nicki Minaj make mark at MTV Video Music Awards

As Johnny Depp unexpectedly floated above the audience as the Moon Man on Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, rapper Jack Harlow took to the air to kick off the show.

Harlow began his act by singing his hit song "First Class," which Fergie's song "Glamorous" copied, while he moved down the aisle of a pretend airliner.

The rapper joined Fergie on stage as she sung her 2006 hit while donning a shimmering silver dress with the words "First Class" in red.

After "First Class" won the prize for song of the summer later in the show, Harlow thanked Fergie for accompanying her and clearing the song.

People don't understand this song is so hip-hop because of the sampling, which is one of its beauties. It means the world to me to include Fergie in this way.

The circle has truly closed. One of the most significant tunes in my early years was "Glamorous."

Nearly three months after the ruling in his defamation trial with his ex-wife Amber Heard, Depp made a surprise cameo on the show.

The actor, 59, floated from the ceiling while donning the iconic astronaut suit and having his face digitally added to the helmet.
