Liam Payne Takes the Stage at MTV EMAs 2017

Rita Ora shocked with her appearance only with a dressing gown and a towel at MTV EMA's 2017

Young Thug looks set to have some serious competition from acts who shared the stage with her at the 2017 MTV EMAs, held in London on Sunday night.

The grime star, 24, delivered a massive rendition of "Big For Your Boots" at the SSE Arena Wembley ceremony, which saw him performing in a police auto. The night's big victor, Mendes, sung his best song-winning track "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" from a huge light box.

USA rap star Eminem opened the show with a performance of his new song "Walk on Water", with Skylar Grey standing in for Beyonce to sing the other part in the duet. Swift, who released her new album "Reputation" Friday, was also nominated in four other categories, including best look, best pop, biggest fans and best artist, but didn't add any prizes to her already crowded shelf at home.

French DJ David Guetta, who performed in front of the youthful crowd, won for best electronic act.

The best video, claimed by United States rapper Kendrick Lamar, was one of the few awards to be chosen by the MTV team.

Thirty Seconds to Mars were named best alternative.

Irish rockers U2 were presented with a "Global Icon" award, in recognition of their decades at the top of the music industry.

This year saw the MTV Europe Music Awards return to London for the first time since 1996.

British R&B singer Rita Ora performed the hosting duties, as well as a mashup of her 2017 hit "Your Song", alongside her new single "Anywhere".
