Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and TwentyOne Pilots tied with two gongs each at this year’s MTV European Music Awards (EMAs).
The ‘What Do You Mean’ hitmaker, the 30-year-old pop star and the musical duo tied at the glamorous event, held in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on Sunday (06.16.16) with two prizes each.
The 22-year-old singer – who racked up five nominations – walked away with the trophy for Best Song for his hit ‘Sorry’ and the Biggest Fans category for his loyal supporters, Beliebers.
Gaga – who’s known for her eccentric style – was equally successful with the award for Best Look and Best Female, while the ‘Heathens’ hitmakers, comprised of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, swiped Best Alternative Act and Best Live Artist.
The gong for Best Video went to The Weeknd for ‘Starboy’ ft Daft Punk, Shawn Mendes nabbed Best Male Artist, while ‘Lush Life’ hitmaker Zara Larsson, from Sweden, got Best New Artist.
Coldplay – comprised of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion – picked up Best Rock Act, while Fifth Harmony, which formed on ‘The X Factor USA’ in 2012 and consists of Dinah Jane Hansen, Ally Brooke, Normani Hamilton, Camila Cabello and Lauren Jauregui, scooped Best Pop Act.
Drake was crowned Best Hip Hop Act, Martin Garrix nabbed Best Electronic Artist, while DNCE got Best Push Act.
Green Day were in for a special treat as they were dished out the Global Icon Award, while Little Mix lead the way for the British with a gong for the Best UK and Ireland Act.
However, not everyone was so lucky as Beyoncé was up for Best Video for her comeback single ‘Formation’, Best Female, Best Live and Best Local Act (US) but came away with nothing.
And Adele was in a similar position as she managed to scoop four nods last month but failed to deliver on the night.
