Article heading image for The Best Performances From The MTV Video Music Awards

The MTV Video Music Awards are back for 2020!

This was a very different VMAs, and while host Keke Palmer and some of the artists were on site, there was no official red carpet and many of the acceptance speeches came via video messages. 

But that doesn't mean they didn't bring it with the performances. Check out our favourites below - we'll keep updating throughout the show!
