  • The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" got Video of the Year accolade

The winners of the highly anticipated 2020 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) were announced on Sunday and BTS and Lady Gaga turned out to be the biggest winners of the night.

South Korean boy band BTS won four trophies during the virtual ceremony, including Best Group. The group edged out bands like Blackpink, The 1975, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Twenty One Pilots to bag the award, Vulture reported.

Apart from winning in that category, the group also went on to win the Best Pop trophy for their blockbuster hit song “On.” The K-pop band defeated heavyweights like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift to win the award.

Best K-pop and Best Choreography were the other categories in which the band won awards.

The band now has 6 VMAs to their name.

Meanwhile, pop superstar Lady Gaga won the same number of trophies as BTS. The musician was crowned Artist of the Year and also took home Song of the Year for her song “Rain On Me” with Ariana Grande.

The aforementioned song also won the Best Collaboration accolade and emerged triumphant in the Best Cinematography category.

She also won the first-ever Tricon award. Tricon award replaced MTV’s Video Vanguard award and honors artists who have become superstars in various fields like acting, music, and fashion.

On the other hand, The Weeknd won two awards during the event. His blockbuster song “Blinding Lights” emerged victorious in the Video of the Year category and also took home the Best R&B accolade.

“Blinding Lights” has been one of the best-selling songs of 2020 and recently broke the record for spending most number of weeks atop Billboard’s all-format Radio Songs airplay chart. The song has been on the number one position for 19 weeks.

Other notable winners of the night were Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, and Megan Thee Stallion.

The "Bad Blood" hitmaker became the first solo female artist to win the Best Director award in the history of the VMAs.
