The MTV VMAs 2020 are under way, with a socially-distanced show recorded largely in New York.

BTS and Machine Gun Kelly picked up the first three awards of the night, with the Korean stars taking home Best Group and Best K-pop, while the US rapper walked away with Best Alternative.

Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga lead the nominations with nine nods for ‘Rain On Me’, while Billie Eilish is also up for seven awards. The Weeknd, Megan The Stallion and Doja Cat are also in the running to take home multiple trophies.

Performances on the night will come from the likes of Miley Cyrus, DaBaby, Chloe x Halle, Lewis Capaldi and Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande. BTS will also give the debut performance of their new, record-breaking single ‘Dynamite’ from Seoul.

The ceremony, which was originally scheduled to take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center but was moved to various outdoor locations due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be hosted by Keke Palmer.
