Weeknd was shown waking up as if he'd been knocked out, rising slowly to his knees and then standing - but then the performance was vintage VMAs, with helicopter shots, loads of lights, an illuminated staircase and of course the lights of NY all around him, which are dazzling even in a socially distanced city.

Lady Gaga took home trophies including Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for "Rain on Me", her collaboration with Ariana Grande.

BTS brought more of the "Dynamite" music video to their first performance on the VMAs stage, sporting '70s-inspired suits and dancing in front of green-screened New York City locations including Dumbo, Times Square and the iconic Manhattan skyline.

Host Keke Palmer acknowledged the death of Chadwick Boseman during the MTV VMAs 2020 opening.

"We dedicate tonight's show to a man whose spirit touched so many". And R&B star H.E.R. won the video for good award for her protest anthem about police brutality and systemic racism, "I Can't Breathe". By the end of the night, the song went on to win the coveted Video of the Year award. They have been nominated 25 times.

The show featured sweeping pans of NY, a city devastated in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic and that originally was meant to host the VMAs at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. During the latter track, he rapped while jumping on top of a police auto, with a burning city as his backdrop. In addition, Miley Cyrus will perform her new single "Midnight Sky" while The Weeknd, Doja Cat and Maluma are set to perform. She rocked yet another one when she accepted the MTV Tricon Award. CNCO won best quarantine performance for "MTV Unplugged at Home".

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion - now basking in the glow of her recent success with Cardi B for their raunchy hit "WAP" - won Best Hip Hop for "Savage".

"This is the very first video that I've ever directed on my own".

"This has not been an easy year for a lot of people, but what I see in the world is a massive triumph of courage", she said. "I wanted to take an opportunity to say thank to the team who believed in me as a first-time director and made this video with me".
