Glitter, glamour and a joint: mtv-awards in amsterdam

Amsterdam (dpa) – long before the party of the year, it was clear that miley cyrus was to be the center of attention at the MTV gala for the european music awards in amsterdam. The 20-year-old US singer is always good for a bit of excitement, after all. Miley fulfilled expectations. From a "spaceship she floated down to the galactic world of glitter and glamour in the ziggo dome on sunday evening. The show was on. But the scandal came at the end. Her evening bag was too small for the trophy for the best video, she regretted. But at least it was coarse enough for a joint, which she then lit with relish on the open stage.
The MTV show had its scandal, and that belongs to the 20-year history of the emas like trumped-up hotel rooms belong to a rock band that holds its own. The joint, which heated up the tempers on twitter and in american media, however, could hardly rub anyone off the chair in amsterdam. This year's venue of the MTV show is finally known worldwide as a paradise for drugs and sex. At least this cliche ran through the show like a red thread.
Hardly any star missed a hint of a possible visit to one of the city's coffee shops during their carefully staged and precisely timed short appearance on the red carpet. And if they didn't, prasentator redfoo, sanger of the US band LMFAO, did.
The u.S. Rapper whirled through the two-hour show at breakneck speed, changing his outfits from skimpy glittery swim trunks to a tight neon spacesuit. Auberirdisch evenly – after the slogan of the evening. With fireworks, lots of metallic glitter, lasers and extras dressed up as aliens, the ziggo dome had become a gigantic galactic world. Also the thousands of fans had dressed accordingly with much make-up and glitter costumes.
A perfect and therefore almost sterile show, said the commentators. Miley cyrus, who caused a stir in the U.S. In august with a lascivious underwear dance, kept it down this time. In the white swimsuit, reminiscent of the aerobic outfit of jane fonda in the last century, was sexy, but not a "wrecking ball" the slick show facade.
U.S. Pop singer katy perry's performance of the hit "unconditionally" proved to be the best of the year under the roof of the cathedral as a breathtaking second queen of the night. The 29-year-old californian received her first award as artist of the year.
Teen heartthrob justin bieber didn't bother to travel to amsterdam. As expected, the canadian was voted best male artist by millions of fans – over 292 million took part in the voting – for the fourth time in a row.
But numerous other world stars thrilled the fans with spectacular performances – an estimated 40 million people had seen the show live. The rock group kings of leon performed, thirty seconds to mars, newcomer robin thicke and the crowd favorite from hawaii, bruno mars. His hit "locked out of heaven had also been voted best song of the year 2013 by pop fans.
If anyone could be crowned the winner of the evening with such a star-studded line-up, it was eminem. The female US rapper belongs to the MTV veterans and was also honored this year – for the 13th time. This time for the best hip hop. He also received a global icon award for his life's work.
The rough favorites, however, were the losers and therefore probably did not appear at all. Both justin timberlake, nominated for five trophies, and lady gaga (four chances) came away empty-handed.
Also at this 20. The critics who criticize the dominance of U.S. Musicians were right in the first edition of the emas. Only 4 of the 16 international prizes went to europeans. The swedish DJ avicii received the EMA for best electronic, the british boyband one direction for best pop and the star of the band, harry styles, was also awarded by the fans for best looks.
At least a small consolation prize remained for germany: the magdeburg band tokio hotel received the biggest fans award. Lena, who was also nominated for world wide act, had to settle for the award best german act. The chinese singer chris lee won the world award.
