The MTV EMAs: All The Winners, All The Highlights!
Warning: this is a spoiler!
The MTV European Music Awards are broadcasting to your lounge rooms as we write. But if you're stuck at work or at school and can't get to a television, never despair! We've got all the results right here.
The Awards ceremony, which is comprised of accolades voted entirely by the public, was a flouro-heavy return to Pacman styling, with a good dose of glitterati- 07 style. And while Joss Stone's dress fit the bill, she somehow got caught in an 80s warp the wrong way, cos her hair was pure Mad Max.
The lucky EMA attendees were treated to a techno-fest, as live performances featured nouveau stylized funky lighting that brought the vibe right into the new millennium. Mika performed "Grace Kelly" to great gusto; while Nicole Sherzinger performed "Baby Love", then teamed up with Will I. Am for the strangest medly ever conceived: a duet version of "I Got It From My Moma/ Baby Love Medley". Tokio Hotel performed in a shower of water, while Avril Lavigne deciding that her classic look was a good thing - kept the pink hair streaks and let her backup dancers headbang in their underwear for her performance of "Hot".
In fact, there were a ton of gyrating girly backup dancers, whether the performances were girls or guys. My Chemical Romance had cheerleaders, while Will.I.Am went for the classic girls-with-showercaps-on-their-heads approach.
There was a good spread of award winners for each category, and the biggest surprise was the winner of the brand new "New Sounds Of Europe" Award taken out by Estonian band "Bedwetters". The best acceptance speech would have to be Amy Winehouse's - she managed a "thanks" and an "um", before looking bewildered at the applauding audience, and leaving it at that. She walked right off stage with nary another word.
