How to watch MTV VMAs online from anywhere

Just like other major events this year, the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will be held virtually though there will also be live performances held at small venues throughout New York City and we have all the details on how you can watch this year's award show online or on TV from anywhere in the world.

This year's VMAs were originally scheduled to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. However, due to the pandemic, the network has instead decided to host the event virtually as well at various undisclosed outdoor locations throughout the city. The live performances at the VMAs will take place at various iconic locations that span all of NYC's five boroughs, so you may get to see your favorite artists perform in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island, Queens or in Manhattan.

The VMAs kick off with the pre-show at 6:30pm ET/PT and Chloe X Halee, Jack Harlow, Lewis Capaldi, Tate Mcrae and Machine Gun Kelly will all be performing live. The main show on the other hand will feature performances from Ariana Grande, the Black Eyed Peas, BTS, Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd and more.

The pandemic has affected more than the event's location though as MTV has decided to add two new categories for this year's show: best quarantine performance and best music video from home. While Blink 182, Drake, Twenty One Pilots, Post Malone and Lady Gaga have all been nominated for these categories, John Legend might end up taking home the awards for both of them thanks to his excellent performance at Lady Gaga's One World: Together at Home benefit concert and his Bigger Love music video that showcased how people all over the world tried to make the best out of their time in lockdown.

Whether you're an avid music fan that's been keeping up with all of this year's new releases or you just want to tune in to see your favorite artists perform at iconic locations across NYC, we'll show you how to get a 2020 MTV VMA live stream from wherever you are in the world.
