Hello again my friends and welcome back to “The Chronicles” where I am serving up another Awards Show rundown. What you have here are the winners of the recently finished American Music Awards that where broadcast from the Microsoft Theatre and hosted by Taraji P. Henson. Though I recorded the program to breeze through with the morning coffee, I didn’t tune in as they aired as I got caught up watching the amazing “Avengers: Infinity War” film. Let’s take a look at the winners now shall we?
ARTIST OF THE YEAR:
Roddy Ricch WINNER – Taylor Swift
Last night the winners were announced for the 2020 MTV EMA’s and this stands for “Europe Music Awards” in case you didn’t know that. Generally speaking, I like to post the nominations rundown and then deliver the envelope about the winners in a post but this year marks the first time that I am including these awards in our related rundowns. According to what I’ve read, they announced the list in early October and I must have been busy at the time. So now without any further adieu, please get a cup of coffee and a scone, take your seats and enjoy the list of the winners of the 2020 MTV EMA’s. Let’s go.

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”
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.
