She and Gaga will perform their hit duet Rain On Me at the event, which was originally scheduled to be held with a limited audience in Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center but will now place at various outdoor locations across New York City instead.

Earlier this month, it was announced that the VMAs would not take place at Barclays as initially planned, instead taking the festivities outdoors as a precaution against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The decision was reached mutually between both MTV and representatives from the large Barclays venue, who said in a statement:

‘The 2020 VMAs paid homage to the incredible resiliency of New York with several outdoor performances around [the city] with limited or no audience, adhering to all state and city guidelines.

‘In close consultation with state and local health officials‎, it became clear at this time that outdoor performances with limited or no audience would be more feasible and safer than an indoor event,’ the statement continued.

‘The VMAs will highlight the boroughs in an exciting show and return to Barclays Center in 2021. MTV will continue to work closely with the Department of Health, state and local officials, the medical community, and key stakeholders to ensure the safety of all involved,’ the missive concluded.
