J Balvin Will No Longer Perform at the MTV VMAs

Columbian superstar J Balvin has pulled out of this year’s virtual MTV Video Music Awards.

“Unfortunately, J Balvin and Roddy Ricch are no longer performing,” a source told Variety. “As with every awards show, there are always last-minute talent changes. That said, this year has more logistical hurdles than most, and the health and safety of our employees and partners is of the utmost importance.”

Variety reports the socially distanced ceremony, which will take place at various locations in New York and on a soundstage in Los Angeles.

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards airs August 30, at 8 p.m. EST.
