MTV’s 2020 Video Music Awards is just days away as the event will take place at outdoor locations across New York City on August 30.

The VMA Awards were initially set to take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, but were moved to various locations across the city due to health concerns.

While the nominations for this year’s VMAs were revealed a few weeks ago, MTV has yet to make known what artist will receive the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The award, also known as the Video Vanguard Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award, is presented to artists and directors for their contributions and impact on music video and pop culture.

As we await to find out the big winner in 2020, let’s take a look at all artists that have won the Video Vanguard Award in VMAs history.
