Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, & Ed Sheeran Perform at MTV EMA
Nicki Minaj wasn’t the only superstar performer at the 2014 MTV EMA. Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran, U2, Enrique Iglesias, and more all brought their talents to Glasgow, Scotland for Sunday’s big show.
Ariana Grande kicked off the evening on a high note by performing a medley of her smash hits “Problem” and “Break Free.” The pop diva also took home the awards for Best Female and Best Song (“Problem”), which was presented to her by Alicia Keys and Emeli Sandé.
Ariana’s boyfriend Big Sean was cheering her on. “Shine bright my baby!!! U look amazing!” he told her, to which she responded, “You’re my favorite.”
Following an introduction from Redfoo, a pregnant Alicia Keys—beaming in white—belted out her empowering anthem “We Are Here” from the O2 Academy.
Ed Sheeran also charmed the crowd at The Hydro with his acoustic ballad “Thinking Out Loud.”
Other winners included Beyoncé for Best Song with a Message (“Pretty Hurts”), Justin Bieber for Best Male, and Katy Perry and Juicy J for Best Video (“Dark Horse”).
