MTV Europe Music AwardsTaylor Swift cleans up, Loredana wins for Switzerland
Harry Styles and Taylor Swift were favorites to enter the MTV Europe Music Awards. In the end, Swift clearly prevailed. She was able to take home four awards.
Taylor Swift explains: The American singer has won four MTV Europe Music Awards this year. So it was she in Düsseldorf queen of the night. Swift won Best Female Artist, Best Video, Best Pop and Best Long Version Video on Late Sunday Night.
The 32-year-old surprisingly overtook Harry Styles, who was still ahead with seven nominations, but ended up with only one, which he was able to turn into a trophy as best live act. Swift was nominated for six awards. As if she knew, Swift personally came to Germany for her triumphant parade. David Hasselhoff (70) handed her one of the trophies.
David Guetta and Nicki Minaj took second place with two awards each: Guetta won one for Best Collaboration (with Bebe Rexha) and one in the Electronic Music category. Minaj won Best Hip-Hop and the all-important Best Song category (Super Freaky Girl). Minaj was nominated for five awards along with singer Rosalía. The last one came up empty.
The show was hosted by a duo: British singer Rita Ora and New Zealand film director and comedian Taika Waititi – the two recently married. Ora, who comes from Albania, could take home the award for her unique style.
For the first time in ten years, the award was held in Germany. Music fans in more than 170 countries could watch the international music event live on television.
