This incredible year in music has seen the return of Taylor Swift, to score six nominations, Shawn Mendes with five, and Ed Sheeran along with Kendrick Lamar nominated for four awards.
The who's who of the entertainment and music industry descended at London's SSE Wembley on Sunday (12 November) night to celebrate some of the best talents during the annual MTV European Music Awards.
British R&B singer Rita Ora performed the hosting duties, as well as a mashup of her 2017 hit Your Song, alongside her new single Anywhere.

Hosted by pop singer Rita Ora, the event was also attended by London mayor Sadiq Khan who helped bring the EMAs to the capital as part of his LondonIsOpen campaign.
Eminem opened the ceremony with his new song "Walk on Water", featuring Beyonce, though Skylar Grey filled on vocals for the live performance. "Holding Me Back" had already won the EMA for best song earlier in the evening, with Mendes thanking his "best friends, Teddy [Geiger], Scott [Harris] & Geoff [Warburton], for writing this song with me".
Notable performances included local London grime star Stormzy, who took to the stage poking out of the sunroof of a police vehicle, and Travis Scott, who entered standing atop what looked like a floating hawk.
