Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande Lead Nominations

The awards show will take place in New York and will highlight "the powerful unifying force of music" amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande scored the most nominations for the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, it was announced today.

The superstar singers are up for seven awards for their collaboration, "Rain On Me," with Gaga earning two solo nods for artist of the year and best quarantine performance. Meanwhile, Grande's nods include two nominations for her Justin Bieber collaboration "Stuck with U," which is up for best collaboration and best music video from home.

In light of the coronavirus pandemic that has kept musicians and their fans at home as people are encouraged to continue social distancing to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, MTV has added the best music video from home and best quarantine performance categories to this year's awards.

Other top contenders this year include six-time nominees Billie Eilish and The Weeknd, with Taylor Swift up for five awards for her videos for "Lover" and "The Man" off of her Lover album.

ViacomCBS Media Networks' president of music, music talent, programming and events Bruce Gillmer said in a statement that fans can expect "a show that celebrates the powerful unifying force of music."

The 2020 VMAs are set to take place in New York City, with performances from iconic locations across the five boroughs, designed "to honor the spirit and resilience" of the city hit particularly hard by the pandemic this spring. Elements of the ceremony taking place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, meanwhile, will take place with "limited or no audience," according to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who revealed the show's Barclays Center location at a briefing last month. Still, the VMAs will be the first event to take place at the Brooklyn arena since the pandemic forced the closure of live-entertainment venues, and cancellation of concerts and other events, including professional sports, in New York.

After a particularly rough experience with the pandemic, with as many as 11,000 new cases a day in April, New York has seen the number of daily new coronavirus cases decline since then and stay below 1,000 a day for the past month.

The VMAs were last held at the Barclays Center in 2013 with last year's ceremony taking place across the river at New Jersey's Prudential Center.

We need at least one performance! Don't even care what limitations there are because of social distancing!

Elsewhere, the way 'Intentions' is nominated for best pop and 'Blinding Lights' is in R&B mathswoman.png Harry Styles and Dua Lipa seem the major snubs from the big awards!

Omg were so winning at least one award then hopefully with 9 noms.

Viewer voting could also potentially work in our favour we do really go off with these kinda things.

I hope that people realise though that at the VMAs it’s the music video that you’re voting for! She deserves it though.

A female collab winning video of the year would be such a moment.

Also I don’t mean to be shady but

Billie Eilish – “everything i wanted” – Darkroom / Interscope Records
Eminem ft. Juice WRLD – “Godzilla” – Shady / Aftermath / Interscope Records
Future ft. Drake – “Life Is Good” – Epic Records / Freebandz

Those getting VIDEO of the year nominations over stuff by Harry and Dua. At least with The Weeknd and Taylor I can say she’d lost out to a strong visual but those weren’t great videos more just like big hits laugh.gif

Impressive but since I'm not the biggest fan of the video I will have to go with Billie on this one. Sometimes special effects being thrown at you 20 times per second isn't a good thing.

What Gaga does have in the bag is probably the quarantine performance thing they made up for this year :')
