The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards have wrapped and Miley Cyrus took home the top award for her Terry Richardson-helmed "Wrecking Ball" clip — but had a homeless runaway take the stage to accept her Moonman and deliver a passionate speech about teenage homelessness in America.

Meanwhile, other winners included Lorde, who collected the trophy for Best Rock Video for "Royals"; Katy Perry, whose "Dark Horse" earned Best Female Video; Drake nabbed Best Hip-Hop Video for his "Hold On, We're Going Home" mini-movie; and Ariana Grande, who picked up Best Pop Video for her "Problem" short.

But the biggest winner, of course, was Beyoncé, who took home three Moonmen — four if you count her Video Vanguard Award — more than anyone else. Then there was her show-stealing, face-melting, 16-minute medley of songs from her Beyoncé album, which you can relive here.
