For Best Quarantine Performance, the nominees are:

Chloe & Halle – “Do It” from MTV’s Prom-athon CNCO – Unplugged At Home DJ D-Nice – Club MTV presents #DanceTogether John Legend – #togetherathome Concert Series Lady Gaga – “Smile” from One World: Together At Home Post Malone – Nirvana Tribute

As far as fan attendance, the Barclays Center will have “limited or no audience.” This is definitely a better option than what's been laid out in a devastating year for live concerts where everything has been canceled in-person due to COVID-19.
