It ‘was just a year ago that the Jonas Brothers were walking down Asbury Park for a rattle, locked up in droves for the MTV Video Music Awards. Such a scene would be unthinkable in today’s social climate and the distances on Sunday, MTV has taken up the task of a live US-press to create the first great COVID-19 was. Before an audience of someone in New York City, it hosted Keke Palmer, the process; Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, BTS, the Weeknd, DaBaby, Miley Cyrus and others performed in sequences that were filmed on the city or in front of green screens. The Social installation distances actually improved the performance in many ways: there were not any painfully slow climb up on stage or beeps suffocating live audio and the term was relatively buoyant than two hours and a quarter. But the show also the scale and spontaneity lost, that made the VMAs before, so unpredictable and irresistible. Here are the most memorable moments of the show, for better or for worse. It may have been Lady Gaga Keke Palmer hosted the show, but Lady Gaga was the big star: Best Overall. They rolled over and over on stage to collect four prizes on the camera, including the reproduction of artist of the year and has played a wild winding medley from her new album, Chromatica. These bite sized pieces of time on stage showed flashes of reason why she was one of the pop star reliable in the past decade, running with muscular voice, idiosyncratic choreography, splashes of blues piano and compassionate acceptance speeches. But their masks were perhaps the most memorable aspect of their night. It is not surprising that Gaga, who has visually radical, arrived a decade ago in the pop world as it would be to make the best of a difficult situation, which also covers requires the famous nose. But she has to go to the bar for PPE fashion forward, comes out first with embedded-like gas mask getup; Then a tentacle to be a cousin of Pirates of the Caribbean Davy Jones; then a reflective silver reminds a mirror guard, and, finally, a head-to-toe surprising ensemble à la Malefica. Best: set Dystopian Nothing is more normal 2,020, and fortunately, the VMAs and its artists do not try to carry on as usual, but dystopian aesthetic embraced around the world, the stadium leaned that Lady Gaga has called ” wrath of pop culture. “and” the anger of the art “Palmer was on a huge multiple screens on which small crowd surrounded digital phase flipped inside out; in the virtual shadow beams Sims as avatars roared their approval. The Weeknd appeared disoriented, bandaged and bloody (as during press appearances for most of this year). DaBaby running on a police car and in front of a green screen in a steaming city. Doja Cat danced by a reddish arid landscape that is Mars or on the seabed it was like. He killed continuous references to death for Chadwick Boseman Jacob Blake to that of the crown lent a somberness to prove that contradict the year in general. Worst: The lack of hip-hop to exist on the other hand, the VMAs appeared in an alternate reality where hip-hop is not the driving force of the modern music industry. Only a true rap song won a price on the camera, and was in the hip-hop category, which was presented dumbfounding for any reason, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The VMAs will be the most forward-looking younger brother of the Grammy, but many of the biggest stars, including year Lil Uzi Vert, Lil child, YoungBoy more broken-Mai and Roddy Ricch been unobtainable. On the contrary, the telecast of songs has been dominated should 80s pop, synth-pop anthem go-go Weeknd “Blinding Lights” for Miley Cyrus’ Stevie Nicks-inspired “Midnight Sky”. The VMAs landed big stars, but most failed to capture what the prevailing current of the music actually sounds today. It has J-Hope BTS better, while the performance of K-pop sucker group “Dynamite”, “Disco Overload /’m fine with that, I’m good to go.” Best: Boy Bands Still, it was hard not to be impressed by the two boy bands who performed on Sunday: BTS, South Korea and CNCO, from Latin America. Former performed “Dynamite”, their first English song completely tuned, with a crunchy Natty choreography and colorful dresses. The latter embraced the strange setting the drive-in concert Skyline Drive-In in Green Point to roam in the middle of the metal audience and jumping on cars. The performance seemed retro and futuristic at the same time. Best: Chloe x Hall One of the electrical performance of the night was the pre-show banned. The R & B duo Hall Chloe x erupted this year thanks to both its flawless album ungodly hour, and readily cunningly-shot home performance. Their performance VMA pre-recorded was no exception: they sang and danced on a revised version of jazzy title track album within a conical strobe. With little ‘luck will be on the main stage next year. Worst: Keke Palmer general impressions, Palmer has made the most of a tough gig, it brings his trademark exuberance and mischief inject energy directly into the camera from different places of the city. But Palmer longer lives in an informal setting and if other people like bounce evidenced by their many viral interviews or “unfortunately this man” meme and respect, they lacked exhortations crowdless momentum. A little ‘running in which she tries on some impressions, including a skeevy male street performers, a ditz and Haute-worldly also fell flat. On the other hand, it was much better than last year’s series, Sebastian Maniscalco.
