The Europe Music Awards held by MTV aired yesterday, broadcasting straight out of Frankfurt yesterday on the 11th of November 2012.
It was a star studded affair which saw the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen and Rita Ora perform and was full of triumphs and controversial upsets.
But luckily for us, our boys have come out on top with two awards won at the ceremony!
One Direction was named “Best New Act” and was also given the title of “Biggest Fans”, where they beat out the likes of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga – so a fantastic feat for 1D and of course all you super dedicated Directioners out there!
Unfortunately they couldn’t be physically present at the awards, like they weren’t there for their “live” performance on the X Factor over the weekend, but they did prerecord an acceptance speech/message that was played at the EMAs when they won their awards.
The band are currently in New York City preparing to do some promo performances on massive breakfast show “Today” on November 13th and 14th.
Yesterday we read a tweet that fans have already started to camp out for the performances, with production staff handing out a fruit platter and basket of bagels – that’s why you guys are the biggest and best fans in the world, absolute dedication!
Rihanna was nominated for 6 awards but won zero! Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night taking home 3 awards with the Biebs also nabbing a trifecta. Nicki Minaj, Psy and Whitney Houston were among the other recipients.
