2016 MTV EMAs: Wizkid, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Jaden Smith, Jourdan, Winnie Harlow, More! Red Carpet + Full List of Winners

Worlds collided in a spectacle of music and stunning visuals on the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMAs) stage, featuring epic performances that took over Rotterdam and aired live around the world on 6 November.

Host Bebe Rexha kicked off the global music celebration, crashing through the ceiling to start the party, followed by superstar Bruno Mars who delivered an upbeat performance of his smash single 24K Magic, lighting up the stage with his dance moves.

Multiplatinum R&B stunner The Weeknd made his EMA stage debut with the first global performance of his smash single Starboy. The performance began in a star-filled dome, which opened to reveal the singer.

Best Push winners DNCE brought the party by performing Cake by the Ocean and Body Moves on a floating platform over the audience, complete with crowd surfers on inflatable donuts, cakes and pizza.

Best Male winner Shawn Mendes wowed the crowd as he emerged from a holographic pyramid, while playing piano for a moving rendition of his hit Mercy.

Best New Act recipient Zara Larsson shook the arena with a fierce medley of her massive hits, Lush Life and Ain’t My Fault.

Lukas Graham commanded the stage with a passionate medley of their hits against a glittering backdrop of stars, culminating in a full-on orchestra for their smash ballad 7 Years.

OneRepublic wowed the audience by performing their new track Let’s Hurt Tonight as rain poured down from the stage, soaking the band while they serenaded fans.

Hometown hero and EMA Music Week Ambassador Afrojack rocked the house with his smash hits Gone and Hey.

Global phenomenon Green Day also returned to the EMAs stage with a vengeance, honoured with the night’s prestigious milestone award, Global Icon. After an explosive performance of Bang Bang, the group closed the show just days ahead of the US election with American Idiot.

Wizkid struck gold at this year’s MTV EMAs, earning not one but two trophies at the global music spectacular. The Nigerian star was honoured with trophies for Best African Act and Worldwide Act, topped only by Justin Bieber, who took home three trophies: Best Song, Best Fans and Best Canadian Act, and matching Lady Gaga who won trophies for Best Female and Best Look.

Wizkid was one of six artists from around the globe who were named as Worldwide Act winners; his fellow honourees were Shawn Mendes (Canada), Zara Larsson (Sweden), Maluma (Columbia), GOT7 (Korea) and Troye Sivan (Australia).
