The show was originally to be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will now be open-air from various locations in New York City in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
My team and I are safe and everyone's health is a top priority, as well as providing quality performance. I appreciate MTV for the opportunity to perform and I look forward to seeing all of you next year. STAY HEALTHY, “said Ricch.
On the other hand, Balvin's representative confirmed on Monday that he will no longer perform at the event, but did not provide details.
Almost two weeks ago, Balvin revealed that he contracted Covid-19 and that this had strongly affected him.
Upon receiving an award at the Premios Juventud 2020, he told viewers: “This is not a joke… the virus as such does exist and is very dangerous, so be very careful. ”
