SINGAPORE, NOVEMBER 2016 – Worlds collided in a spectacle of music and stunning visuals on the 2016 MTV EMAs stage, featuring epic performances that took over Rotterdam and aired globally on 7 November. Host Bebe Rexha kicked off the global music celebration as she crashed through the ceiling to start the party, followed by superstar Bruno Mars delivering the first big global performance of his smash single 24K Magic, literally lighting up the stage with his dance moves. The show repeats tonight on MTV at 8pm (WIB) and 9pm (MY/PH/SG), and on MTV LIVE HD at 8.45pm (WIB) and 9.45pm (HK/MY/PH/SG).
Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga were head to head with two wins each before the start of the red carpet, when Beliebers voted in force for Justin Bieber to win the title of Biggest Fans. With this nod added to his Best Song and Best Canadian Act wins, Justin Bieber took home three purple EMAs. MTV turned all the 2016 awards purple as a tribute to the iconic late artist Prince.
Global phenomenon Green Day also returned to the EMAs stage with a vengeance, honoured with the night’s prestigious milestone award, Global Icon. They had an explosive onstage performance of Bang Bang, and closed the show just days ahead of the U.S. election with American Idiot.
Additionally, MTV recognized artists from around the globe including Shawn Mendes (Canada), Zara Larsson (Sweden), Maluma (Columbia), Wizkid (Nigeria), GOT7 (Korea) and Troye Sivan (Australia) as the Worldwide Act winners. Đông Nhi is the Best Local Act for Southeast Asia.
“We want to thank MTV EMAs for giving us the Worldwide Act for 2016 and we’re really sorry that we can’t be there with you guys but thank you to all of our fans. It’s really an honour and we’re going to continue bringing you guys good music and we’re going to work harder and harder. Thank you!” said GOT7.
