Voting over, the 2011 MTV EMA winners have been announced at the star studded event that took place last night in Belfast and the chosen ones have walked home (or perhaps been chauffeured to the after-party) with the coveted awards. Let us take a look at some of those who ruled the night.
Lady Gaga confirmed her star status as she dominated the show, leaving Belfast with four awards (Best Female, Best Song, Best Video, and Biggest Fan).
The group, 30 Seconds to Mars, also received the first award of the night during the red carpet pre-show for Best Alternative and were honored again with Best World Stage. Justin Bieber’s fans would be glad to learn that the singer headed home with awards for Best Male and Best Pop while Bruno Mars topped off a stellar 2011 with victories in Best Push and Best New.
Eminem did not leave the show empty-handed either, the rapper bagged himself an award for Best Hip Hop while Katy Perry proved to be an EMA favorite again as well by being rewarded with Best Live.
Best Rock went to Linkin Park, and Korean band BigBang proved that they rock around the world by winning the inaugural award in the category of Worldwide Act.
Rounding out the night of awards was the incomparable Queen, who were awarded the Global Icon award prior to an electrifying performance that included Adam Lambert on vocals.
Congratulations to the 2011 winners for their very well- deserved EMAs.
