The 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards gave us everything we love seeing, really: a lack of clothing, stellar performances, and our favorites winning awards! This year’s awards were held in Amsterdam, and One Direction, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus were all nominated for awards and each went home with victories!

On the EMA preshow, Austin Mahone won the “Artist on the Rise” award and kicked off the EMA’s in New York City. Mahone gave a performance of recently-released “Banga Banga” while atop a World War II US aircraft carrier Intrepid! This is a European awards show, Austin!

Miley Cyrus was, of course, the hot topic of the night. Cyrus opened the show with a space-themed rendition of “We Can’t Stop”, with aliens, little people, and her twerking in tow. She later performed her newest smash “Wrecking Ball” (with very little clothing I might add). But when she went up on stage to accept her Best Video award for “Wrecking Ball”, Miley pulled an alleged marijuana joint from her Chanel purse and proceeded to smoke while she gave her acceptance speech! Talk about lighting up the EMAs, eh? However, when the EMA’s were aired in America, MTV did, in fact, edit out Miley’s joint-smoking (dammit).

Performances also included Eminem’s return with an epic rendition of “Berzerk” and “Rap God”. Katy Perry smashed it with her newest single “Unconditionally” while Bruno Mars gave a sexy performance of “Gorilla”. And Icona Pop later closed the show with their summer smash “I Love It”.

The MTV EMA’s actually has some interesting categories that fans can vote on such as Best Look and Best Push. One Direction were the biggest winners of the night, nabbing three EMAs (two collectively and one featuring bandmate Harry Styles).  Eminem trailed behind with 2 EMA’s, winning Best Hip-Hop and being honored with the Global Icon Award. Tokio Hotel took home the award for Best Fans (which, okay).The full listing of winners and their categories from the 2013 MTV EMA’s is listed below:

As the 2013 MTV EMA’s wrapped up Sunday night, most of the artists flew back to their respective homelands in the America and England. Without a doubt, the winners and nominees all have their sights set on the 2014 Grammy Awards which are just a few months away. Will the EMA winners also take that walk across the Grammy stage to accept their golden gramophone? We’ll just have to wait and see now won’t we? Tweet us your thoughts (we love hearing opinions, really) on the 2013 MTV EMA’s on how you feel on Miley smoking, or Miley twerking, or Miley crying or..? Okay. Just tweet us at @weknowthedj on anything actually! We’d love to hear from you!
