On September 12, the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards commenced, among the likes of Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Tayler Swift, Doja Cat, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, Shakira, and more, Stray Kids, and TXT also attended and performed to the great anticipation of their fans. 

Both groups gave energetic and impressive performances. Stray Kids performed their latest title track song "S-Class," while TXT premiered new single "Back for More" featuring the Latin starlet Anitta. 

Stray Kids' performance was full of their signature energy and charisma. The members took turns stunning the audience with their rapping and singing. The song is about self-confidence and determination, and Stray Kids definitely embodied those qualities like pros in their VMA debut. The powerful dance break near the end gave high tension, and the lift done by I.N and the dancers was particularly impressive.  

TXT's performance was also full of energy and excitement. Beomgyu started the performance with a solo dance with a mysterious vibe building up curiosity about the new song. but then they quickly switched to a more upbeat and funky mood. The members showed off their impressive dance skills and performed with great energy. The members showed off great chemistry with Anitta and harmoniously did choreography together. Although the song is in English Anitta spiced it even more by mixing Spanish lyrics. The Michael Jackson-influenced dancing made for a winning combination.
