Tonight’s the night! The 2015 MTV EMAs — which are sort of like the VMAs, except based in Europe, fan-voted and focused on celebrating artists from regions all over the world — went down tonight at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan in spectacular fashion this evening, hosted by x superstar Ed Sheeran and Orange Is The New Black breakout bombshell, Ruby Rose.

It was a big night for favorites from all across the world, although the night’s biggest categories largely went to American acts, including Taylor Swift for Best Song (“Bad Blood” with Kendrick Lamar), Best Female (Rihanna) and Best Male (Justin Bieber). Bieber undoubtedly led the pack for the evening, scoring five wins, including Best Fans, Best Collaboration, Best Look and Best Canadian Act. (AKA: Never question the power of a #Belieber with a Purpose.)

It was also a big night for “Stitches” Vine superstar-turned-singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes, who came home with the Best New Act award, as well as Honeymoon darling Lana Del Rey, who took home a trophy for Best Alternative.

Big international winners included our favorite Sounds Good, Feels Good Aussie punk-poppers 5 Seconds Of Summer, UK powerhouse pop troupe Little Mix and, of course, the night’s own host Ed Sheeran, who won both Best Live Act and Best World Stage.

Find out every artist who took home the awards for the night below, via HollywoodLife and MTV.
