The MTV awards were the first major live event that took place in the Covid-19 era. Producers of the show took considerable precautionary measures. Despite all the challenges, the ‘Video Music Awards’ were a huge success. Here are some details about how the ceremony went down!
The biggest night of the year was held outdoors, keeping security guidelines in mind. The organizers decided to restrict performances and have limited number of audience.
The ‘Hustlers’ actress, Keke Palmer became the first black woman to host The VMAs all by herself. In an interview she revealed that she took over 10 Covid-19 tests. Meetings for the show were held online through Zoom. The glam teams of all celebrities and the backup dancers were instructed to cover their faces.
Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga were among the leading performers at the event. The two divas looked ravishing in their glamorous masks. Others included Miley Cyrus, The weekend, Maluma and BTS.
Although the celebrities did not follow the ’14 days restriction’ rule, they were restricted to their hotels. Discovering the city, going outside to grab a bite or sight-seeing were off the list this year.
A statement released by the management said: “Among the measures all parties involved have aligned to include extensive social distancing procedures, meaningful capacity limitations, the virtualization of components where possible, and limited capacity or no audience”.
