The year 2020 has changed a lot about the world, including how we do award shows. Since COVID-19 makes it pretty impossible (and dubious health-wise) to pack a theater full of celebrities and fans, the rich and famous have to settle for receiving their honors digitally, or, in the case of the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, very socially distanced.
Seeing people interview each other six feet apart in different locations in New York City is not something we’d thought we’d see at the VMAs, but if there is anyone who could get us through this weird time, it’s Keke Palmer. The 27-year-old actor, singer, and TV host is lending her talents as host for the evening. She’s the first woman of color and the second youngest person ever in the position — and we have no doubt she’ll absolutely nail it.
Speaking of nails — you already know we’re checking for her beauty looks. We’ve rounded them all up here. The VMAs might look a little different, but that’s not stopping Ms. Palmer from giving us some beauty moments to remember… and maybe even copy later.
