We are getting to experiment several new things in the pandemic times. The MTV VMAs 2020 will be held virtually for the first time in the history of Video Music Awards.
Originally, the show was supposed to be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. However, in view of the coronavirus pandemic, the location of the awards was shifted to outdoors at several places in the New York City. Now, the MTV VMAs 2020 will take place without any spectators and virtually.
