More artists have been added to the list of performers at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards set to air live on Aug. 30. The network announced that The Weeknd, Maluma, Roddy Ricch and CNCO are set to perform during the upcoming ceremony. It was previously announced that BTS, Doja Cat and J Balvin will all be performing during the award show, while Keke Palmer will serve as host.
The 2020 VMAs will consist of several outdoor performances around New York City with limited or no audience, adhering to all state and city guidelines. The network said in a statement, “In close consultation with state and local health officials, it became clear at this time that outdoor performances with limited or no audience would be more feasible and safer than an indoor event. The VMAs will highlight the boroughs in an exciting show and return to Barclays Center in 2021. MTV will continue to work closely with the Department of Health, state and local officials, the medical community, and key stakeholders to ensure the safety of all involved.”
The Weeknd is nomiated for six awards, and Roddy Ricch also scored three nominations, while Maluma landed recognition with his Best Latin Video nomination. CNCO also received two nods.
