On September 11 1987, Madonna won Best Female Video for Papa Don’t Preach at the MTV Video Music Awards at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles.

Having just completed her Who’s That Girl World Tour in Europe, Madonna did not attend the ceremony in person. Instead, a performance of Causing A Commotion recorded the week before in Turin, Italy was featured during the broadcast.

  1. Wow!!! What a blast from the past. I watched and videotaped this when it aired on TV 29 years ago today, and I’m not gonna lie — I wore that videotape out practicing all of M’s choreography in my bedroom! I may now be a middle-aged man with an arthritic back rather than the flexible teenager I was then…but I’ve STILL got the moves, baby! 😉
