Winners for the 2021 MTV EMA have been announced.
The MTV Europe Music Awards (otherwise known as the EMAs) returned for 2021 and took place in Hungary on 14 Nov. at the Papp László Budapest Sportaréna — and the nominees for one of Europe’s most highly anticipated award show made for a pretty impressive lineup. Justin Bieber led the charge with eight total nominations, which include “Best Artist”, “Best Pop”, and “Best Song”, closely followed by Doja Cat and Lil Nas X.
Ed Sheeran was the British act with the most nominations of the night, as he was up for Best Artist, Best Pop, Best UK & Ireland Act, and Best Song and Best Video (both of which are for his single “Bad Habits”).
The “UK & Ireland Act” had a total of five exciting nominees this year, including pop sensation Dua Lipa, rapper Dave, and girl group Little Mix, along with Ed Sheeran and KSI. In the end, it was Little Mix who took home the honour, marking the second year in a row they won the award.
