The 2022 MTV EMAs

14/11/2022

Taylor Swift was the top winner at the 2022 MTV EMAs, which were held at PSD Bank Dome in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Sunday (Nov. 13). Swift took four awards — best artist, best video, best pop and best longform video for “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version).”

This is Swift’s second win for best video. She won three years ago for her “ME!” collaboration with Brendon Urie.

Nicki MinajDavid Guetta and SEVENTEEN each won two awards. Minaj was awarded best song for “Super Freaky Girl” and best hip hop. Guetta won best collaboration for “I’m Good (Blue),” a collab with Bebe Rexha, and best electronic. SEVENTEEN won best new and best push.

Harry Styles, who was this year’s top nominee with seven nods, won just one award — best live. The category was reintroduced after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

Rita Ora and Taika Waititi co-hosted the show, which featured performances by several of the night’s winners — Guetta and Rexha, Muse (best rock) and Gorillaz (best alternative).

OneRepublic performed “I Ain’t Worried,” from the blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick, following a video introduction from the film’s star, Tom Cruise. The show also featured performances by Ava Max; Stormzy featuring Debbie; GAYLE; Lewis Capaldi; Tate McRae; SPINALL, Ayanna and Nasty C; Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra, and Thundercat (who performed with Gorillaz).

Rising West Philadelphia rapper Armani White performed his hit “Billie Eilish.” during the EMA red carpet show.

There were two new categories this year — best longform video (which went to Swift) and best metaverse performance (which went to BLACKPINK).

Co-host Ora received a special award, best look ‘personal style.’

This year’s MTV EMA generation change award went to three Ukrainian women — Lina Deshvar, Anna Kutova and Anfisa Yankovina — for fighting for the care and rights of those impacted by the humanitarian crisis in that country. MTV Entertainment Group selected the honorees in partnership with Choose Love, a humanitarian nonprofit that provides aid to, and advocacy for, refugees around the world. This award was launched in 2018. The recipients were honored during the MTV EMA red carpet show.

The show also featured appearances by Lauren Spencer Smith, David Hasselhoff, Julian Lennon and Sam Ryder, among others.

The MTV EMAs were broadcast on Nov. 13 across MTV’s global network in more than 170 countries and on Pluto TV in select territories across the U.S., Latin America and Europe, and on Comedy Central in Germany. It will be available on Paramount+ and Pluto TV globally, beginning Nov. 14.
