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”.
