Bocelli won a second Lockdown award for performing “Amazing Grace” on Music for Hope: Live From Duomo di Milano, a livestreamed concert from the empty cathedral on Easter Sunday, April 12.

Trey Songz hosted The Lockdown Awards, which included performances by Ally Brooke, Avenue Beat, Wiz Khalifa, Lauv and Conan Gray, Icona Pop and Sofi Tukker, Joss Stone, Johnny Orlando and Monsta X.

DJ D-Nice was awarded the Lockdown MVP Award for innovation and creativity in his live performances throughout the pandemic on Instagram. D-Nice has also been recognized at this year’s Webby Awards and BET Awards.
