Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga reigned over the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards at Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The international superstar dominated Sunday’s show, winning four awards including Best Female, Best Song, and Best Video for “Born This Way.” She journeyed to the moon to deliver an out-of-this-world performance of her new single “Marry the Night.”

Two-time winner Justin Bieber spread cheer with his Christmas single “Mistletoe” and “Never Say Never.” Love was in the air as Bruno Mars serenaded the crowd with “Marry You.” And David Guetta was joined by Ludacris and Taio Cruz for “Little Bad Girl.”

“I never got to thank Amy Winehouse for breaking boundaries. She set a new standard for British female artists,” said a teary-eyed Jessie J while introducing a tribute to the late Winehouse. The 23-year-old popstress broke out from a vault for “Price Tag” and filled in for Usher on Guetta’s smash “Without You.”

Other winners included Eminem for Best Hip-Hop, Katy Perry for Best Live, and Bruno Mars for Best Push and Best New.

Jason Derulo makes Future History on the cover of his sophomore album, due September 27. Following the success of his dance floor hit “Don’t Wanna Go Home,” the 21-year-old singer is readying “It Girl” as his next single. A video has already been shot by director Colin Tilley.

Video: Jason Derulo – ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’

Jason Derulo

Daylight comes, but Jason Derulo doesn’t want to go home in the video for the first single from his sophomore album Future Sounds, due in September. While his friends are passed out from the night before, the R&B singer ignites a warehouse with his electrifying moves, causing the water sprinklers to go off. Melody Thornton makes a cameo, dancing alongside him.

“The kid is so hardworking,” wrote the former Pussycat Doll. “He had an injured ankle and still killed the choreography, danced around all day and gave interviews. He is so deserving of all his success, trust me!”

Derulo explained his vision to Rap-Up TV. “I wrote the video treatment and [director] Rich Lee took my treatment and expanded upon it and elaborated on it, but it’s really special,” he said. “It’s a high-energy dance video, more dancing than anybody’s ever seen me do thus far, yet very sexy.”
