For the first time ever, MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) 2022 will include a category termed “Best Metaverse Performance”. The new category exhibits widespread interest in the metaverse’s opportunities and highlights the steps made by studios such as Epic Games to adopt the concept over the years.
Several musicians held performances virtually in popular games throughout 2022. This year, Ariana Grande’s Fortnite performance and Twenty-One Pilots’ Roblox concert will contest in MTV’s new Best Metaverse Performance category for the Video Music Awards.
As per the reports, voting for the metaverse and 21 other categories is currently open, and MTV will reveal the winners at the VMA live show on 28 August.
The whole list of nominees and connected platforms for the Best Metaverse Performance category of the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards are as follows:
- Blackpink the Virtual – PUBG Mobile
- Rift Tour ft. Ariana Grande – Fortnite
- BTS – Minecraft/YouTube
- Charli XCX Roblox Metaverse Concert
- Justin Bieber – Wave
- Twenty-One Pilots Concert Experience – Roblox
MTV reasoned that the rise of musicians hosting concerts online was what made them go for the new category. MTV mention that they took on the opportunity to highlight and honor some of the best, most impactful executions of this and celebrate artists who have found creative ways to use these spaces, which led to the addition of the Metaverse Performance category this year.
Back in 2020, when Travis Scott performed at the Astronomical concert, he was one of the first musicians to host a performance in this manner, and since then, the connection between music and the metaverse has only risen.
