It's a good thing the Moon Person's helmet has a built-in mask, because MTV has made a decision to move forward with the 2020 Video Music Awards.

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards are set to take place this summer despite the coronavirus pandemic.

This year's show featured socially-distant performances from artists including DaBaby and Megan Thee Stallion.

With 2020 bringing abet powerhouse all-female duets on the pinnacle of the Billboard Sizzling 100, Girl Gaga and Ariana Grande would possibly give VMAs viewers a diversified glimpse of Chromatica with a stay "Rain On Me" forecast.

Including to the controversy, within the weeks because the VMA information initially broke, Barclays Center, which is situated in a densely populated a part of New York Metropolis's most populous borough, has turn out to be a gathering level for Black Lives Matter protests. This clearance would allow MTV to hold their scheduled event on August 30. Since the pandemic began, NY has significantly decreased their amount of COVID-19 cases, despite the spikes in other parts of the country.

Despite this star-studded lineup, the 2019 MTV VMAs broke the previous record for all-time-low viewership, drawing just 1.93 million viewers on MTV and a peak of 4.9 million viewers (as usual, the event was simulcast) across Viacom's many television stations, Paramount Network, BET, and Comedy Central among them. Signature awards include "Video of the Year" and the "Video Vanguard Award", the latter of which has been given to Missy Elliot, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Kanye West, Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake, among others.
