One Direction, Ariana Grande win big at 2014 MTV EMAs

Stars descend on Glasgow’s SSE Hydro for the 20th MTV EMA awards.

Last night saw One Direction claim three MTV EMA awards, as Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and 5 Seconds of Summer followed closely, scoring two gongs each.

Hosted by Nicki Minaj, the landmark event took viewers through the 20-year history of the EMAs, and even saw David Hasselhoff dress up in blue face paint to become ‘BraveHoff’ – yes, really.


One Direction won ‘Best Pop’, ‘Best Live’ and ‘Biggest Fans’, while Ariana Grande walked away with ‘Best Song’ for Problem FT Iggy Azalea and ‘Best Female’.

Katy Perry picked up ‘Best Video’ for Dark Horse FT Juicy J and ‘Best Look’, and 5 Seconds Of Summer scored ‘Best New’ and ‘Best PUSH’.


The show saw star-studded performances from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Royal Blood, Charli XCX, Kiesza, Alicia Keys, U2 and Enrique Iglesias, while Nicki Minaj debuted new track Bed Of Lies featuring a surprise appearance by American singer-songwriter Skylar Grey.

Rock royalty Ozzy Osbourne accepted 2014’s Global Icon Award as Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil closed the show alongside Slash, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators for a redition of Ozzy’s 1980 track Crazy Train.
