Remember a month or so ago when we listed the nominees for the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs)? Well, it would seem that time is an illusion and another month has gone in the blink of an eye.
Two days ago, the VMAs took place and the list of winners were presented. This year, the show honored “Everyday Heroes: Frontline Medical Workers” for their great contribution amidst the outbreak of the deadly Covid-19.
The show aired live from New York on Sunday, August 30th and was one of the first live award show to take place since global shutdown in February. All safety measures were ensured and the organizers complied with needed standard operation procedures before, during and after the event.
