The VMAs are scheduled to take place in New York City next month and will highlight “the powerful unifying force of music” amid the coronavirus pandemic. But MTV officials will take precautions as the virus is still very much present, in fact, there will be “limited or no audience” at the awards.

“Show producers alongside Barclays Center management have been working closely with state and local officials to implement best practices for everyone involved,” a statement from MTV reads. “Among the measures, all parties involved have aligned on include extensive social distancing procedures, meaningful capacity limitations and the virtualization of components where possible.”
