The Moon Person everyone has been waiting for: Camila Cabello wins the best video of 2018!

Cabello scored the award for video of the year at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for her video “Havana.”

The statuette was presented by none other than Madonna, who celebrated her 60th birthday last week.

The former Fifth Harmony member, 21, was so in awe, took a moment to bow before Madonna prior to standing for her speech.

“This is… my hands are literally shaking. I’m never going to forget this moment,” she said. “Madonna, I love you so much.”

“You’ve inspired me so much. I love you, seriously. This moment is so surreal,” Cabello gushed.

“I want to thank my family, who inspired this music video, I want to thank my fans,” she added. “I dedicate this to Madonna.”
