Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran vie for best artist at MTV EMAs

13 November 2017, 03:37 | Myron Mathis

Rita Ora hosted and performed, opening the show alongside Kurupt FM, the stars of BBC comedy "People Just Do Nothing", with a skit that featured London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Mendes played his most recent Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit, "There's Nothing Holding Me Back", giving a blistering performance of the song that culminated in a surprisingly heavy rock breakdown at the end.

Mendes performed There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back, the victor of Best Song.

Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran are among contenders for best artist at the MTV EMAs, where Irish rockers U2 are set to be named global icons. Watch the performance below.

Singer Camila Cabello, who won the best-pop prize, performed "Havana" with a troupe of dancers dressed as bathing beauties around a realistic projection of a pool.


The best video, claimed by United States rapper Kendrick Lamar, was one of the few awards to be chosen by the MTV team. One recent example was her appearance at X Factor where she performed in a live show only wearing a top a pair of knickers, with most viewers making fun of her by saying that she forgot to wear her pants. Frontman Jared Leto thanked Europe, adding that the U.S.is a land of immigrants and "we welcome you with open arms". There was no equivalent of Kanye West crashing the stage after losing in 2006 or Miley Cyrus smoking a joint in Amsterdam in 2013.

U2 performed in London's Trafalgar Square the night before the MTV awards, along with DJ Guetta, to a crowd of 7,000 who won free tickets in a ballot.

"Their songs are prayers, their concerts a church", he said.

This year saw the MTV Europe Music Awards return to London for the first time since 1996.
