The EMA’s: a holiday between Halloween and Christmas where 99% of the music business gathers in a big European stadium. Yep, it’s that time of the year again. Taylor Swift was the most nominated artist, with six nominations, but how many awards did she take home? You can find the answer underneath. In addition to that you get a free gift: Enfnts Terribles’ opinion on all the 2017 winners!
Best Song: There’s Nothing Holding Me Back – Shawn Mendes
Hmm. At least Despacito didn’t win.
Best Artist: Shawn Mendes
If it were up to us, Kendrick Lamar would have received the award. Or maybe Ed Sheeran. But okay, we get it by now, the 19 year old Canadian is cute and he clearly has a lot of fans.
Best Look: Zayn
Nope. This award belonged to Dua Lipa, hands down.
Best New: Dua Lipa
Yaaas, this is how we like it!
Best Pop: Camila Cabello
A lot of crying in the club because of this. Why not Miley Cyrus, Europe?!
Best Video: Humble – Kendrick Lamar
This is already the fourth nomination that Taylor Swift didn’t win… But let’s be honest: Kendrick deserved this one so badly!
Best Live: Ed Sheeran
This winner is no surprise, Ed is brilliant on stage.
Best Electronic: David Guetta
Best Rock: Coldplay
Is Coldplay still bringing rock, though? Sounds more like pop to us. Foo Fighters would’ve been our pick.
Best Hip Hop: Eminem
This was a hard choice. Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Future and Post Malone were tough competition. But we approve of Eminem as the winner. Maybe his appearance on the EMA stage has something to do with our approval… What a brilliant performance of his new song Walk On Water. Sad thing that Beyonce didn’t join him on stage, but replacement Skylar Grey did an absolutely wonderful job.
Best Alternative: Thirty Seconds To Mars
Oh lord, no. This one was for Lorde.
Biggest Fans: Shawn Mendes
According to the voting for Best Song and Best Artist this might be very true. (Still no Taylor Swift.)
Best Push: Hailee Steinfeld
We are shook. What about SZA?! Or Noah Cyrus?!
Best World Stage: The Chainsmokers – Live from Isle of MTV Malta 2017
Tomorrowland was one of the nominees. But the Chainsmokers won… You can judge yourself if they deserve the award, because you can rewatch the show here!
That’s it, folks. No awards for Taylor Swift. Maybe 2018 will be her year. (Or not.)
