MTV announced that Lady Gaga will be hitting the stage at this year’s 2020 VMAs. Gaga will be performing hits from her latest album, Chromatica, and this year’s event marks the first time that Gaga will perform at the VMAs since 2013.
Gaga is up for several awards this year, including Artist of the Year and Video of the Year for her “Rain on Me” video. Her collaboration with Ariana Grande for “Rain On Me,” marked the biggest Spotify debut of 2020, reaching #1 on the Global and US Spotify Charts upon release and peaking at #1 on the iTunes charts in 29 countries and #1 on the Apple Global Chart.

The video for “Rain On Me” has amassed over 177M views.
The song is nominated Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Pop, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, and Best Choreography. Gaga was also nominated for Best Quarantine Performance with “Smile,” from the One World: Together At Home event.
Lady Gaga has a total of 9 nominations, and has been nominated for 36 “VMAs” to date. She has a total of 13 VMA wins, and her first dates back to 2009 for Best Art Direction from “Paparazzi.” That song also earned Gaga her first nomination, along with “Poker Face.” Her “Bad Romance” track won a total of 7 awards, including “Video of the Year”
The awards didn’t stop there, and now Gaga has an Academy Award, Golden Globes and Grammys. With over 35M global album sales she is one of the most popular artists on the market, and she has over 42B streams and 321M in song consumption.
