Watch performances from The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and more at the MTV 2020 VMAs
Not even a pandemic can stop MTV‘s iconic Video Music Awards. The annual event took place on August 30, and featured a powerhouse roster of performances from The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, BTS, Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat, and more. For an event taking place during such unprecedented times, things ran quite smoothly for the duration of the awards show. Performers even made sure to incorporate masks into their wardrobe to promote public health.
Lady Gaga, known for her statement-making outfits at each year’s event, stole the show with an exciting Chromatica medley. Joined on stage by Ariana Grande to perform their smash hit collaboration, “Rain On Me,” the decorated pop maven’s performance was certainly the highlight of the night.
Another standout performance came by way of The Weeknd, who took viewers on a journey through his viral hit “Blinding Lights.” Standing atop New York City’s Hudson Yards with a massive, illuminated cityscape backdrop, The Weeknd finished his performance accompanied by a barrage of colorful fireworks.
