The MTV Video Music Awards looked a little different this year. Most of the “red carpet” interviews, performances, and award presentations were already prerecorded in New York and Los Angeles. But that didn’t stop celebrities from shedding their stay-at-home sweats for more glamorous looks. Hosted by Keke Palmer, the annual awards ceremony, which is honoring the best of music in 2020, was held in COVID-safe outdoor arenas across New York City. While there will be no large audiences this time around, there was still a star-studded roster of performers this year, including talents such as Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, BTS, Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd, Doja Cat, and more.
