'N Sync, Eminem Rule MTV Awards

07/29/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

First things first: Lil' Kim, just named one of PEOPLE's Worst Dressed, wore a transparent body suit, while winning "Survivor" Richard Hatch, known to parade around in his birthday suit, was dressed head to toe in black Gucci. It was all part of Thursday night's MTV Music Video Awards, which rocked New York's Radio City Music Hall like a hip-hop extravaganza -- though there was room for other styles, too. Big winners 'N Sync took home three "Moon Man" trophies -- including best pop video and the viewers' choice award -- while controversial rapper Eminem, who tied 'N Sync with six nominations, took home two awards, including the prestigious video of the year nod. Before the ceremony, 'N Sync's Chris Kirkpatrick told PEOPLE that his group was hoping to take home at least one MTV award. "We don't have anything of these," he said, "but we have six this year, so if we go home empty handed it'll suck. We're hoping to get six, but one would be nice."
