10 November,2014:Â One Direction were the big winners at the 20th annual MTV Europe Music Awards taking the awards for Best Pop, Best Live and Biggest Fans.
The band were not at the ceremony to collect the award in person but thanked their fans in video clips.
Other stars winning multiple awards included US hit maker Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer and Katy Perry, who was also absent from the event.
The event was held at the Hydro arena in Glasgow on Sunday night.
Anaconda singer Nicki Minaj hosted the awards, as well as performing a medley of some of her biggest hits.
Other performers included U2, Ed Sheeran, Brighton duo Royal Blood and Canadian artist Kiesza, who performed a large part of her set from inside a glittery red phone box.
Alicia Keys was among artists performing at the O2 Academy in Glasgow as part of an outside broadcast. Her performance was shown live on TV screens around the Hydro.
Speaking ahead of the show James Currell, chief operating officer for Viacom International Media, who produce the show, said he hoped this year’s awards could reach even more viewers than in the previous year.
He said: “Tonight millions of viewers from across the world will see us from Glasgow on our 60 MTV channels and our 200 MTV digital properties.
“Last year we had 55 million people see the event. Could we do more tonight? Let’s keep our fingers crossed.”
