Lady Gaga Reacts to Leading MTV VMA Nominations: 'I Am So Grateful and So Blessed'

The network previously announced that the awards show will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York after it was granted a go-ahead from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to the usual categories — including video of the year, artist of the year, song of the year, best collaboration and more — MTV has added two new categories aimed at honoring music created during the pandemic: best music video from home and best quarantine performance.

Grande and Justin Bieber’s "Stuck with U," 5 Seconds of Summer’s "Wildflower," blink-182’s "Happy Days," Drake’s "Toosie Slide," John Legend’s "Bigger Love" and Twenty One Pilots’ "Level of Concern" are all nominated for best music video from home.

The nominations for best quarantine performance include Chloe x Halle’s "Do It" from MTV’s Prom-athon, CNCO’s Unplugged At Home, DJ D-Nice’s Club MTV #DanceTogether, Legend’s #togetherathome Concert Series, Gaga’s "Smile" from One World: Together At Home and Post Malone’s Nirvana Tribute.
