Swift dominated her competition, winning four of the five awards she was nominated for: Best Artist, Best Pop, Best Video and Best Longform Video (earning the latter two for her short film All Too Well). She was also nominated for the Biggest Fans award, but lost out to BTS. That was the only title that the K-Pop megastars took out, but they led the list of overall nominees, earning a total of seven nods.

Minaj, Seventeen and David Guetta each took home two awards, with Minaj winning Best Song (for ‘Super Freaky Girl’) and Best Hip-Hop, Guetta winning Best Electronic and Best Collaboration (for his Bebe Rexha joint ‘I’m Good’) and Seventeen winning Best Push and Best New.

Blackpink, on the other hand, scored two awards on a technicality. The group themselves took out the title for Best Metaverse Performance (for their PUBG concert ‘The Virtual’), while Lisa won the Best K-Pop award; notably, both Lisa and Blackpink were nominated for the latter.

Elsewhere, Chlöe took out the Best R&B award, Muse took out Best Rock, Gorillaz took out Best Alternative and Anitta took out Best Latin, while Sam Smith won the Video For Good award (for their Kim Petras joint ‘Unholy’) and Harry Styles earned the gong for Best Live.
