Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been plenty of amazing music this year. Taylor surprised everyone in July 2020 by releasing her eighth studio album, folklore. The album became the top-selling record of 2020 and is the only album of 2020 to cross 1 million albums in pure sales in the U.S. The Weeknd, 30, dropped his fourth studio album, After Hours, in March 2020. The album was one of the biggest streaming hits of 2020. He recently released the music video for his hit song “Too Late.”

This year’s AMAs are going to look a little different this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony won’t look like it normally does with all the stars coming together into one theater. However, like many other awards shows, the AMAs will find a way to make the show go on. The ceremony will feature marquee performances and signature breathtaking moments — all done safely, of course.
