MTV VMAs 2020 Performers Being Pulled Due to Safety Precautions? (Report)

The 2020 MTV VMAs are continuing to face many hurdles.

The upcoming awards ceremony, which is set to broadcast live on August 30, is planning a remote production involving multiples stages, crews and talent after abandoning initial plans to host the event at the Barclays Center – and the final performer count is possibly up in the air, via Hits Daily Double on Friday (August 21).

“While MTV pivoted from hosting the event at Barclays Center to producing at various locations across New York and Los Angeles—a daunting task at any moment, let alone a pandemic—it’s rumored that multiple performers might be pulled from the event due to safety precautions,” the outlet reported.

“Some sources have reported issues with the COVID compliance team. A bubble has been created at an L.A. hotel for the artists and their teams, along with a bubble for production at the custom-built soundstage for the event.”

Current planned performers include Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, The Weeknd and BTS.

Here is who is nominated at this year’s ceremony…
