The 22nd MTV EMAs - European Music Awards - was a star-studded affair, featuring a host of musicians and celebrities from all around the world.

The event, hosted by Ed Sheeran and model Ruby Rose, took place at Milan's Mediolanum Forum and will be the first award show to be broadcast in virtual 360 degrees.

While Taylor Swift was predicted to be the night's big winner, having been nominated for nine awards, it was actually Justin Bieber who came away on top, winning a total of six awards compared to her two.

Our very own Ed Sheeran also did well, managing to win two awards at the show. Here’s the list in full, thanks to MTV.
