UK band One Direction and 'Call Me Maybe' star Carly Rae Jepsen were also winners at this year's awards.

Taylor Swift And Justin Bieber were the big winners at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2012 (EMAs) over the weekend while both Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction both also had hugely successful nights.

'Begin Again' singer Taylor won three awards in total while attending the event, picking up Best Female, Best Live and Best Look awards over the course of the evening, which took place at the Festhalle in Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday night (11th November).

Taylor was presented with the Best Female award by 'Born To Die' singer Lana Del Rey, and managed to stave off competition on the category from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Pink, Katy Perry and Rihanna.

The US singer-songwriter also performed live at the event as the final artist performance of the night, when she gave a crowd-pleasing rendition of 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together'.

Canadian superstar Justin Bieber also had a big night when he picked up Best Male, Best Pop Act as well as the highly coveted Best World Stage gong, but was unable to attend the event due to his current 'Believe' world tour.

Carly Rae Jepsen performed her hit single 'Call Me Maybe' as one of the first performers at this year's EMAs, as well as winning both Best Push Artist and Best Song for her breakthrough hit 'Call Me Maybe', being presented with the award by reality star Kim Kardashian.

UK boy band One Direction were very successful at this year's ceremony after winning both Best New Act and Biggest Fans, after being named the Best UK & Ireland Act in the regional nominations ahead of the event, while 'The Boys' singer Nicki Minaj won Best Hip-Hop.

Other winners at this year's EMAs include David Guetta for Best Electronic, Lana Del Rey for Best Alternative and PSY picking up Best Video for his worldwide hit 'Gangnam Style'.
