The 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards happened

The tl;dr version: Heidi Klum is the best thing ever, as seen below.

ENCHANTING. Oh, and the winners … well, despite this being the MTV Europe Music Awards, only three awards went to European acts, with the lion’s share going to Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. Yes, really. Because when you think of European music, you think of the American country artist and the Canadian pop star. The winner’s list from the Daily Mail

Best Song – Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
Best New Act – One Direction
Best Female Act – Taylor Swift
Best Male Act – Justin Bieber
Best Pop Act – Justin Bieber
Best Live Act – Taylor Swift
Best Hip Hop – Nicki Minaj
Best Rock Act – Linkin Park
Best Electronic Act – David Guetta
Best Alternative Act – Lana Del Rey
Best Video – Gangnam Style (Psy)
Best Look – Taylor Swift
Biggest Fans – One Direction
Best Worldwide Act – Han Geng
Best World Stage – Justin Bieber
Best Push – Carly Rae Jepsen
Global Icon – Whitney Houston

So basically, out of a possible 17 awards, three went to European acts. Actually, one didn’t go to a European act, so much as it went to the nutso fans of a European act, and you just know that One Direction will invariable end in an implosion of ego, sex scandals and insanity. Five over-hyped kids with way too much money? You’d be better off giving them matches and setting them loose in a fireworks factory.
