The 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards took over Frankfurt, Germany, early this morning, where some of the world’s biggest music acts performed and received honours in front of their peers and fans. British singer Rita Ora opened the show with an electric performance of “R.I.P.” that Kim Kardashian said was her highlight of the event. “We Are Young” rockers fun. took to the stage soon after, and two of the year’s biggest tracks, “Call Me Maybe” and “Gangnam Style,” were performed by Carly Rae Jepsen and Psy respectively. Music veterans Alicia Keys and No Doubt wowed the crowds and Taylor Swift closed the Heidi Klum-hosted show with a circus-inspired rendition of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” The big winners of the MTV EMAs include Taylor, One Direction, Justin Bieber and Lana Del Rey — you can find the full list of winners here.
