Popular award show Anugerah Meletop Era 2020 (AME), originally scheduled to take place on April 12, will be postponed to an unspecified date.

Organisers of AME, a fan voting-based award show, said the decision was made as an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19 and in line with the government's call to postpone all gatherings including international meetings, sports, social and religious events until April 30.

Though there's no news on when the award ceremony will eventually be held yet, fans can still continue voting for their favourite artistes until April 12.

AME's biggest prize of the night, Artis Top Top Meletop (Male, Female and Group), is seen as a gauge of who are the hottest local celebrities of the day.

Last week, weekly live entertainment programme Meletop ran for the first time without a studio audience as a measure to curtail Covid-19.

"With their safety in mind, we are doing away with studio audiences for the time being. But we know we have audiences at home who are cheering for us," says host Nabil Ahmad.
