MTV Europe Music Awards
In Madrid, the MTV Europe Music Awards were presented. The stars of show business from all over the world arrived in Spain. Some of them went home with MTV statuettes.
The 17th ceremony of the European Music Awards was held yesterday in Madrid. According to the European MTV, the best of the best this year was Lady Gaga. Are we surprised? Of course. no. Outrageous pop diva has already collected all sorts of awards on all continents. Bad Romance received the award as the best song of the year.
In total the singer was nominated in 5 nominations. However, the singer was not able to personally attend the presentation of the honorary award. Lady Gaga is on tour with her tour in Budapest.
Therefore, the audience could only be satisfied with the "greetings" with the help of satellite communications.
As for the other awards, the best singer was the young protege of Asher, Justin Bieber. And he also won a prize in the category "breakthrough of the year" (Best push act). But the boy is only 16 years old.
For the best concert performance awarded the American alternative group Linkin Park. "Best World Tour" was awarded to Tokio Hotel, and the best rock singer was the Californian band Thirty Seconds to Mars.
The legendary Bon Jovi was awarded the title of "World MTV icon".
For the best hip-hop awarded Eminem, who not so long ago returned from oblivion. Well, the favorite of the young Katy Perry received only a consolation prize for the best music video. But she claimed for 5 awards.
EMA is famous for its bright show. This year, the leading was in the inimitable Eva Longoria, who was replaced during the show of a dozen suits (once with her literally yanked off Katy Perry's skirt). Eva appeared on the stage very effectively: smoke, fireworks and, finally, a triumphant exit leading in a tight dress. Later, by the way, pyrotechnics had to work more than once, so that the audience was satisfied with the visual side of the show.
The evening was full of not only special effects, but also unexpected duets. So, Kanye West "wedged" in the performance 30 Seconds to Mars, and Shakira on the stage was the company Dizzy Rascal.
The girls were especially pleased with this evening: Katy Perry, apparently, missed the fans after the honeymoon, put on a full (like her stylists, however). Her best friend Rihanna with fireworks did not overdo it - she had a more lyrical number: a mysterious haze, flowers everywhere. And Miley Cyrus finally matured - in a girl who performed in a frankly sexy outfit on EMA, it seems that there is no trace of Hannah Montana.
Alas, the show did not have a queen of shocking Lady Gaga - she had a concert in Budapest. Nevertheless, she watched what was happening in Madrid. The singer received MTV EMA in three categories.
