The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards were dedicated to the late Chadwick Boseman.
Host Keke Palmer made the announcement at the top of the show.
“We dedicate tonight’s show to a man whose spirit touched so many,” she shared. “He is a true hero, not just on screen, but in everything he did. His impact lives forever.”
The VMAs are also planning to air an “In Memoriam” segment with other dedications throughout the show tonight.
Chadwick sadly passed away on Friday, after years of battling stage IV colon cancer, at the young age of 43.
