VMA trophy known as "Moon Person" is seen during the 2018 VMAs.

The iconic Moon Person award will still be handed out at the 2020 VMAs. Due to COVID-19, this year's Keke Palmer-hosted event will be held virtually, while also appearing somewhat similar to the other award shows which have been forced to find unique ways to work around the issues that have been brought about by the pandemic. 

MTV and the Barclays Center mutually decided earlier this month to nix their initial idea of holding the annual event in Brooklyn with a small audience or no attendees at all. "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," MTV and Barclays said in a joint statement. 

Instead, this year's VMAs will take place at "various outdoor locations around the city." 

Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga are tied for the most nominations with nine, seven of which are for their collab "Rain on Me." Billie Eilish and The Weeknd sit in second with six noms. 

Check out the list of winners below, which will be updated throughout the show.
