MTV Europe Music Awards 2013: List of winners in full
Eminem was the only artist to take home two awards at the ceremony
Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and One Direction were among the winners at the 20th MTV Europe Music Awards last night, with Justin Timberlake leaving empty-handed despite five nominations.
US rapper Eminem took home the most trophies, two for Global Icon and Best Hip-Hop act, on the same day as he celebrated his seventh consecutive chart-topping UK album.
True to recent controversial form, Miley Cyrus appeared to light a rolled-up joint on-stage while accepting the Best Video award for the naked-swinging hammer-licking “Wrecking Ball”.
The former Disney star opened the show with “We Can’t Stop”, accompanied by a latex-clad dwarf who spanked her as she twerked.
Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg/Lion, The Killers and Kings of Leon all performed, with Swedish pair Icona Pop closing the event with “I Love It”.
