MTV Europe Music Awards 2011 - winners

The 18th MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) took place tonight at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Ireland. The event was hosted by Selena Gomez, who is still apparently Justin Bieber's girlfriend. Rumours had swirled that she dropped him after a paternity suit was filed against him.

As she did last year when she won three awards, Lady Gage dominated the evening. She had led with six nominations and came away with four awards. She won prizes for Best Song, Best Female Artist, Best Video and Biggest Fans. Her rival in four categories Katy Perry came away with a single win for Best Live Act.

Canadian heartthrob and supposed teen father Justin Bieber claimed three awards on the night. He won for Best Pop Artist and Male Artist as well as receiving the MTV Voices Award.

It was a good night for Martians as double prize-winners included Bruno Mars and Thirty Seconds To Mars. Big Bang claimed Best Worldwide Act and Best Asia and Pacific Act. German Eurovision winner Lena Meyer-Landrut who simply goes by Lena won for Best German Act and Best European Act.

Montreal band Arcade Fire had been up for Best Alternative and Best World Stage performance but didn't manage to win either category.

Brian May and Roger Taylor accepted the previously announced Global Icon Prize to the group Queen.

Winners were selected by MTV viewers across Europe.
