MTV VMAs 2020 Are Happening Live (& In Person) on August 30!

It looks like the 2020 MTV VMAs are a go!

The Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, announced today that the annual music awards show will indeed be happening as planned on August 30 in Brooklyn, NY.

“The Video Music Awards are going to be held Sunday, August 30, at Barclays Center,” he said during a press conference on Monday (June 29). In addition, he showed a slide on the screen behind him that noted, “the event will follow all safety guidance, including limited or no audience.”

It’s unclear who will be invited to the event, if celebrities will all attend and do a red carpet or if there will be a virtual aspect to this show.

At one point, New York City was the epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic in the United States. New York state now has the lowest Coronavirus positive cases of any state in the country due to social distancing measures put into place.

The last update we received for the VMAs kept the possibility open for a 2020 show date and now it looks like it’s happening!
