The ceremony was hosted by Rita Ora, who at one point sported a dressing gown on stage.

Jared Leto's band Thirty Seconds to Mars won best alternative act, and Leto used his time on stage to discuss immigration, saying: "We are Americans, a land of immigrants, and we just want to say we welcome you with open arms and open hearts and we love you". "Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to the wonderful crowd!"

Eminem's new single 'Walk On Water' featuring Beyonce is getting all kinds of reactions from the audience.
