The 2018 MTV EMA show was Sunday in Spain. Although the MTV Europe Music Awards aren’t a big deal here in the States, some of the biggest stars attended.
Camila Cabello won big at the show, snagging Best Artist, Best Video, Best Song and Best US Act (Worldwide Act*). Dua Lipa won Best Pop, Cardi B won Best New and Nicki Minaj won Best Look and Best Hip-Hop. Basically, it was a good night for women. See the full list of winners over at Billboard.
Minaj didn’t just take home a couple of awards, she also kicked things off with “Good Form.” Eventually, Little Mix joined her for their collaboration, “Woman Like Me.” Hailee Steinfeld did double duty, hosting the show and performing “Back to Life.” We can’t mention performers without include Janet Jackson‘s three-song medley of “Made For Now,” “All for You” and “Rhythm Nation.”
Although these were our favorite moments from the 2018 MTV EMA, social media told the other story. It gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the artists and their special moments. Check out eight of the best social media moments from the 2018 MTV EMA below.
A Drink Break
Can’t blame Panic! at the Disco‘s Brandon Urie for taking a drink during a big moment. If you’re thirsty, you’re thirsty!
When Camila Met Janet Jackson
Those smiles say it all! This was definitely a special moment.
Nicki Minaj’s LEWK
Minaj’s MTV EMA looks were all custom-made Versace. She posed in several of them for the ‘gram, including this sassy pink one.
Bebe Rexha’s Red Carpet Vibes
Does this really need a caption?
Ms. Jackson Being Adored
Jackson walked like she was on a runway at the MTV EMA awards. While she walked, adoring fans screamed about how much they loved her. Hey, we’d be screaming for her too.
Camila Posing with Her Winnings
She looks like she is on top of the world and she should be. She took home more awards than anyone else.
Pretty in Pink
Rosalia was pretty in pink on the carpet. Her two-piece outfit made quite the statement.
