The who's who of the entertainment and music industry descended at London's SSE Wembley on Sunday (12 November) night to celebrate some of the best talents during the annual MTV European Music Awards.

In a first for the EMAs, which were created in 1994, MTV announced categories stripped of gender in a bid to "break barriers".

He performed the track that won him best song - There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back - in front of an electrified crowd in London.

US rap star Eminem opened the show with a performance of his new song "Walk on Water", with Skylar Grey standing in for Beyonce to sing the other part in the duet.

Other winners at the event, which celebrates the global music scene, included Coldplay (for best rock act), Dua Lipa (for best new act) and Zayn (for best look).

"Look What You Made Me Do", singer Taylor Swift had been the most-nominated star of the evening, with six nominations, but failed to win any awards.

The minor blip didn't affect the rest of the night for Stormzy though, after he picked up the award for Best UK and Ireland Act at the ceremony. One recent example was her appearance at X Factor where she performed in a live show only wearing a top a pair of knickers, with most viewers making fun of her by saying that she forgot to wear her pants.

Thirty Seconds to Mars were named best alternative.

"U2's impact on music, pop culture and social issues around the world has been tremendous", said Bruce Gillmer, producer of the awards ceremony.

The Detroit rapper also took the award for "Best Hip Hop", an honour which he appeared to find slightly baffling.
