FULL LIST:  Winners, MTV Video Music Awards 2020
The Weeknd, Lady Gaga and BTS are among the winners of the night

The MTV Video Music Awards was held Monday, August 31 (late Sunday, August 30 in the US). Coronavirus pandemic precautions in mind, this year’s edition did not have a live audience. Performers also took the stage in different locations across the city.

The show kicked with a tribute to Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who died on August 28 after battling colon cancer.

“We dedicate tonight’s show to a man whose spirit touched so many,” host Keke Palmer said. “He is a true hero, not just on-screen, but in everything he did. His impact lives forever,” she added.

Palmer then talked about the challenges of 2020, saying that “there have been incredible moments of inspiration,” as the world battles the coronavirus.

“We’ve seen heroes go up and beyond, whether they drive a delivery truck, work in a grocery store, or serve frontlines in a hospital. And with the Black Lives Matter movement, we’ve seen our generation step up, take to the streets, and make sure our voices will be heard. Enough is enough,” she said.
