The 2020 MTV VMAs will take place in New York City at 8pm ET. It was initially supposed to take place inside the Barclays Center but that plan was scrapped due to COVID-19 concerns. This is even after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave the awards show the green light to have "limited to no audience" at the arena. The plan at this point will be to have the ceremony outside the venue along with performances across all of NYC's five boroughs.

Last week, Doja Cat, J Balvin, and BTS were one of the first artists announced as performers at the VMAs. Now, more superstars are being added as The Weeknd, Roddy Ricch, Maluma, And CNCO will also be joining them, according to Variety.

This will be Ricch's first VMAs performance as he broke out as a star in 2019 with hit single, "The Box." This record has just been certified platinum as well. He will be nominated for Song Of The Year, and PUSH Best New Artist.

Two new VMAS categories have been added with Best Music Video From Home and Best Quarantine Performance. CNCO was part of the Best Quarantine Performance category for "Unplugged At Home." These are two categories that we may never see again so it'll be interesting to see who will win in these. Nominees in CNCO's Best Quarantine Performance category are:

Chloe & Halle ("'Do It' from MTV’s Prom-athon"), John Legend ("#togetherathome Concert Series"), Lady Gaga ("'Smile' from One World: Together At Home"), and Post Malone ("Nirvana Tribute").

The Weeknd will also perform at the VMAs as he's nominated for six awards.

The Weeknd was in high demand to perform at the VMAs and now, we are getting one of the best artists in the world. He released his fourth studio album, 'After Hours,' in March and it went platinum quickly. It was led by the singles "Blinding Lights" and "Heartless," both of which became No. 1 records in the country. He was supposed to go on his After Hours Tour this summer as well but like with many concerts, got pushed back to 2021 due to COVID-19.

Maluma will also perform at the VMAs.

Fans are also excited about the addition of Maluma to the lineup of performances at the VMAs. He released his fourth studio album, '11:11,' last spring as it was led by singles such as "HP" and "11PM." It debuted at No.1 on Billboard's US Top Latin Albums Chart and has since been certified 5x platinum.

Keke Palmer will also be hosting the VMAs. Last week was huge for her as she was announced as the host and will be appearing in the upcoming 'The Proud Family' reboot.
