It was only a few minutes ago that the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards completed their annual awards broadcast. This year’s show was originally supposed to take place at the Barclays Center but resultant of the still quite problematic Coronavirus, was instead held at assorted locations across the city. Many segments were filmed earlier to make the production a bit easier to tie together and it was hosted by Keke Palmer. I breezed through the broadcast after programming the DVR since its mostly music I am not listening to as I’m more a Heavy Metal and Hard Rock enthusiast. Those two genres were not represented at all. Here are the winners of this years VMA’s.
VIDEO OF THE YEAR:
Billie Eilish — “everything i wanted”
Eminem ft. Juice WRLD — “Godzilla”
Future ft. Drake — “Life Is Good”
Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande — “Rain On Me”
Taylor Swift — “The Man” WINNER – The Weeknd — “Blinding Lights”
Hello again my friends, it wasn’t long ago that I lined out the nominations for the 2019 MTV VMA’s and this year’s awards were just handed out in full during a fully loaded entertainment spectacle at New Jersey’s Prudential Center. While we didn’t watch the broadcast ourselves we are happy to share the winners circle with all of our readers who enjoy this group of artists. The show was hosted by Sebastian Maniscalco. Let’s go.
Video of the Year:
21 Savage: “a lot” [ft. J. Cole]
Billie Eilish: “bad guy”
Ariana Grande: thank u, next”
Jonas Brothers: “Sucker”
Lil Nas X: “Old Town Road (Remix)” [ft. Billy Ray Cyrus] WINNER – Taylor Swift: “You Need to Calm Down”
The Recording Industry calls this the “Biggest Night In Music” for the year and to fans of some genres out there this is probably true. As a tried and true supporter of Metal and Rock, this is generally a disappointment but that is a matter discussed over on the PiercingMetal.com website and not here on ”The Chronicles” since the audience is a lot more varied. The Grammy’s were given out over the course of the last few hours and I’ve been researching and typing to get them all to you shortly after the broadcast. I didn’t watch more than fifteen minutes of it since “The Walking Dead” was on and that’s more important to me. Also, the disrespect of Rock and Metal with their awards being announced and given out before the broadcast even aired found me discussing the matter on the Metal site on THIS POST so do please check that out if you are so inclined. This list is long so you’re going to want to get comfortable. Here we go.

As our brand-new 2019 year gets underway, I wanted to add once more that I hope that this will be a good one for you. It’s important to me that our readers are doing alright as often as possible. So now its time to get back into business and I already foresee this as being a productive year. I’ve revamped a few of the categories and merged some others as I’ve noted in other posts and with our covering so much music over on PiercingMetal.com, the notion of supporting more tour announcements that don’t fit there on this website commences for 2019 with the recent reveal of the full lineup for this years Coachella Music Festival. Take a look at the poster down below before we continue.
Last night, MTV aired their 2018 “Video Music Awards” live from New York City’s famous Radio City Music Hall and when I stopped to consider the amount of Housewife Diary Shore Race reality programs that the network airs each and every day, I wondered when they actually had the time to show any music videos. Of course, I should stress that I hardly pay any mind to the network in today’s world since my own musical interests are so very different from what is considered popular over there. That said, I still wanted to share the winners of the “2018 MTV Video Music Awards” since I’ve done this kind of posting for the 2018 Academy Awards and The Tony Awards so why not keep on going. Here are the winners of the coveted Cosmonaut err I mean “Astronaut” from last night’s show.
Video of the Year:
Ariana Grande – “No Tears Left to Cry”
Bruno Mars – “Finesse (Remix)” [ft. Cardi B] WINNER: Camila Cabello – “Havana” [ft. Young Thug]
The Carters – “APES**T”
Childish Gambino – “This Is America”
Drake – “God’s Plan”
