Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber were the big winners at the 2012 MTV EMA, winning three awards each.Host Heidi Klum got the night off to an epic start, taking a tumble down a toilet bowl before performing an hysterical dance duet with South Korean superstar, PSY. The German model also took hosting the prestigious bash to new heights – literally – by spinning in an hoop high above the audience.
Swift had a busy evening in Frankfurt, taking home three awards for Best Female, Best Live, and the brand new category Best Look, and performing We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together in the show’s phenomenal finale that saw the whole circus wonderland come to life.
Although he wasn’t able to attend the event, teen superstar Justin Bieber was the joint top winner at ceremony, picking up the gongs for Best World Stage, along with repeat wins for Best Pop and Best Male.
