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”
Considering that I run a Heavy Metal and Hard Rock music review and photography site like PiercingMetal.com, there aren’t a whole lot of times that I find myself perusing the pages of Billboard Magazine. Sure I know they are the keepers of all the chart information but so much of what I am lending my time to is seldom lined out in there. It’s a cruel truth when we follow music that is not supported here as much as it is in other countries. That being said; I still like to use “The Chronicles” as a means to line out those artists who have won since the readers of this site are usually listening to other stuff than I am. Here we go, and I’d get a coffee for this one since it’s a long list. I’ve culled this from the other entertainment sites and left the nominees in for good measure.
The Chainsmokers Drake — WINNER
Twenty One Pilots
Top New Artist:
Lil Uzi Vert
Lukas Graham Zayn — WINNER
