There will not be any sleeping in Brooklyn when the MTV Video Music Awards get back to Barclays Center on Sept. 12.

Unquestionably, a lot has changed in the pop world from that point forward — and not just due to the pandemic that constrained the VMAs to move from Barclays Center to other remote locations a year ago.
This year, there make certain to be more fans — and fewer masks.
With the 40th anniversary of MTV on Aug. 1, the current year’s event will likewise mark a more solemn remembrance of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. MTV is teaming up with 9/11 Day, a nonprofit that will lead a series of service-oriented activities during the week paving the way to the VMAs.
And keeping in mind that no host or performers presently can’t seem to be declared, you can expect a’s who of pop stars to appear after COVID kept the party from going on in its usual style a year ago.
