Bieber ruled the 2015 MTV EMAs.

Pop singer Justin Bieber dominated the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) with five wins on Sunday night, including for best male performer, best collaboration and best look. Clad in a boyish red ensemble, Bieber performed his single What Do You Mean? for screaming fans — many of whom surely helped him win the best fans category — inside the Mediolanum Centre in Italy’s fashion capital of Milan. In a field that included superstar Taylor Swift, who had the most nominations of the night, the Seattle-based duo won for Best Video with “Downtown.” “We’re not on a major label; we don’t have a big budget.

The 25-year-old singer, who was not present on the night as she’s currently on a tour in Atlanta, won Best Song for hit ‘Bad Blood’ featuring hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar, News.com.au reported As he picked up his award for best collaboration, Bieber said “it’s been a pretty good night.” By the time he took the fifth award, for best look, he just said “Wow.” Host Ed Sheeran had a busy night, keeping the show going with co-host Ruby Rose, performing with Rudimental on their hit Lay It On Me, and taking home two awards himself, for best live act and best world stage.

The duo, best known for their 2012 gay equality anthem “Same Love,” shot the video for “Downtown” in Spokane, Washington, showing street life as Macklemore shops for a moped and leads a street parade. Superstar Justin Bieber, whose long-awaited album fourth album “Purpose” comes out next month, appeared in a red jumpsuit as he performed his new hit “What Do You Mean?” driven by a mellow electronic beat. None of those acts were on hand to accept, and only Minaj sent along a video “thank you.” Best video went to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who opened the show with their award-winning song “Downtown,” with Eric Nally flying against a full moon backdrop. Conceived as an alternative to the US-based MTV Video Music Awards aimed at international fans, the ceremony has often been dominated by North American stars.

Diamond Platnumz, a star of bongo flava, the Tanzanian hip-hop genre that has found a growing international audience, won in a category for Africa and India. As the broadcast wrapped up, cameras cut to the Piazza Duomo in Milan’s center, where fans unfurled a huge “Freedom” banner to raise awareness about Europe’s refugee crisis. “Music lovers around the world, when we started, there was us and MTV, and we blazed a trail and we were there for each other,” Simon Le Bon told the crowd.

Andrea Bocelli made his MTV EMA debut, lulling the Italian crowd into a sing-along of his hit “Con te partiro” before singing a duet with best newcomer nominee Tori Kelly. “It’s been such an honor just to be around him and just see how he works and it’s really cool to see his wife and kids,” Kelly said on the red carpet, calling it “a huge honor” to share the stage with Bocelli.
