CelebritiesThe biggest stars gathered on Sunday evening for the MTV Europe Music Awards in Düsseldorf, Germany. They pulled out all the stops for that, even an outfit with Kanye West print. Although all attention went mainly to Taylor Swift (32), who became the queen of the evening. The singer wrote no fewer than four awards to her name.
A trendsetting award show calls for extravagant outfits. And that message came across clearly. For example, singer Bebe Rexha strolled in a blue construction and Noa Kirel, an Israeli singer, also dropped jaws in an ensemble on which the head of Kanye ‘Ye’ West was printed.

The show itself was helmed by singer Rita Ora and her husband, director Taika Waititi. Together they presented the evening and announced the acts. Kalush Orchestra, the Ukrainian Eurosong winners, among others, was allowed to perform there.
But the big winner of the night was without a doubt Taylor Swift. She won no less than four awards: Best Artist, Best Pop, Best Video and Best Longform Video. She received it for her short film ‘All Too Well’. “I wrote and directed my music video for a long time, it was the first short film I made,” he said enthusiastically. “It feels like I learned a lot about myself and about filmmaking because of it. It can be a natural extension of storytelling, just like songwriting.” Only her nomination for ‘Dear Fans’ ultimately failed to redeem, which went to the South Korean boy band BTS.

Unfortunately for Harry Styles, the spoils were disappointing. The British pop star received seven nominations, but only took home two awards: Best UK & Ireland Act and Best Live. He also had a chance to win the award for Best Song with ‘As It Was’, but Nicki Minaj took the prize there. She also won gold in the Best Hip Hop category.
Unfortunately, our northern neighbors missed their chance at a coveted statuette. The Dutch DJ Tiësto had a chance to win in the Best Collaboration and Best Electronic categories, but the French David Guetta took both home thanks to his hit ‘I’m Good (Blue)’ with Bebe Rexha. Goldband did receive the award for ‘Best Dutch Act’. They also scored hits like ‘Emergency’ and ‘This is for you’.
