[VIDEO] VMA Live: Watch MTV 2020 Pre-Show


The Video Music Awards 2020 are almost upon us (MTV, 8 / 7c), but since no good party starts without a little pre-game, the ceremony hosted by Keke Palmer kicks off early.This year’s VMA pre-show begins at 6:30 p.m. ET and will be streamed live from the official VMA Twitter account. (Click here to watch the stream.) And lest you think MTV is recording all the assets for the actual ceremony, here’s a list of the artists you can expect to see on the stream: Jack Harlow, Chloe x Halle , Tate McRae, Lewis Capaldi, Machine Gun Kelly, Travis Barker and Blackbear.

As Sunday’s ceremony draws closer, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande lead the field with nine nominations each, seven of which are shared for their successful ‘Rain on Me’ collaboration. Other multi-nominated artists include The Weeknd (seven), Billie Eilish (six), Taylor Swift (six) and Megan Thee Stallion (five).

Streamed (primarily) from New York’s Barclays Center, this year’s VMAs feature socially distant performances from Gaga, Grande, Black Eyes Peas, BTS, CNCO, Doja Cat, Maluma, DaBaby, The Weeknd, and Miley Cyrus. The main event is also airing simultaneously on The CW, making it the first time that VMAs have aired on a major broadcast network.
