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”

ARTIST OF THE YEAR:
