2010 MTV EMAs

RiRi Gets Racy, Shakira's Dizzee And Bon Jovi Rock…

Don’t miss the ‘2010 MTV EMAs’ broadcast from the Caja Magica in Madrid today (Monday November 8) @ 4pm (AEDT)

After months of anticipation the ‘2010 MTV European Music Awards is finally here!

And with a whole host of breath-taking live performances, superstars including Ke$ha, Katy Perry and the Kings Of Leon well and truly rocked the stage at Madrid’s Caja Magica.

Kicking things off in style was Colombian songstress Shakira, who was joined by rapper Dizzee Rascal for a duet of her hit ‘Loca.’

Showing off her famous midriff in a silver bra top and fringed harem pants, she mesmerised the British hip hop star with her hypnotic belly-shaking moves, as well as the rest of the audience!

But she wasn’t the only one to put the crowd in a spin. Southern rockers Kings of Leon went ‘Radioactive’ as they belted out their hot new track – and Katy Perry, decked in a glittery jumpsuit, lit up the bash – (literally) with plenty of on stage sparks for her new release ‘Firework!’

But proving Katy’s not the only popstar who can spice up a stage - Miley Cyrus swapped her long flowing arrivals gown for some cream-coloured lingerie a she grinded up and down her male and female backing dancers.

We wonder if she took inspiration from Rihanna’s VERY similar lingerie costume…

Entertaining fans with her new track ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ RiRi squeezed her envious curves into a tiny cream corset as she performed against a fairytale set, complete with hundreds of flowers.

Meanwhile Ke$ha went crazy with the glow-in-the-dark face paints for an eye-popping remixed performance of ‘Tik Tok’- and Linkin Park had the crowd fist-pumping along to their smash hit single ‘A Thousand Suns.’

And that’s not all - B.o.B was also reunited with Paramore’s Hayley William’s to soar through their duet ‘Airplanes,’ and ‘Global Icon Award’ winners Bon Jovi wowed fans with a rock medley of hits including ‘What Do You Got,’ ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’ and ‘It’s My Life.’

And it wasn’t just the performers who got the pulses racing – but the host of the bash, Eva Longoria, too!

The ‘Desperate Housewives’ beauty kept busy with a massive TEN costume changes throughout the night - including an ultra short red mini, black sparkling feather gown and even a giant ham to channel her inner Lady Gaga!
