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”

Hey there my friends, so last night they broadcast the 60th Annual Grammy Awards and since I’ve been enjoying showcasing these kind of spectacles with you – I’ve culled together the full list of winners from numerous sources to make sure I didn’t leave anything out. I don’t usually watch the broadcast since there is so little Rock and Metal represented but I do still share those winners on my PiercingMetal.com website. I told the readers of this blog that I do this to fire up the tempers of the Metal reviews readers since they get so passionate about the subject. You’ll notice that this year I’ve showcased the winners only and not the other nominees. This is much easier to read and finish examining in a few minutes unlike the other list which I think ran me something like fourteen pages of text. Here we go.

Record of the Year: 24K Magic by Bruno Mars

Album of the Year: 24K Magic by Bruno Mars

Song of the Year: ”That’s What I Like” — Christopher Brody Brown, James Fauntleroy, Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars, Ray Charles McCullough II, Jeremy Reeves, Ray Romulus & Jonathan Yip, songwriters (Bruno Mars)
