The 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) took place today, and this year the event truly had a global feel. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show was filmed in various locations across the world, including London and Budapest, Hungary, with performances by Sam Smith, Doja Cat, Zara Larsson, and Little Mix, who also hosted the event.

And while there were some seriously epic performances to keep us entertained while in lockdown, of course, the entire reason for the concert is the actual award ceremony. Leading the charge with seven nominations was Lady Gaga, followed closely by Dua Lipa with four and Cardi B with three.

In 2020, a new award was added to the fold to reflect the times we're living in — the best virtual live performance — with BTS, J Balvin, Katy Perry, Little Mix, Maluma, and Post Malone all vying for the prize. Keep reading to find out all the artists who won at the 2020 MTV EMAs.
