The moment Kanye declared the award show loses credibility if he doesn't win an award

'This video cost $1 million! I had Pam Anderson. We jumped across canyons!'. To say Kanye West wasn't pleased with the outcome of the 2006 award for 'Best Music Video' is an understatement. In true Kanye style he stormed the stage to show exactly what he thought about the decision.

Ron Burgundy coming to the 2013 MTV EMAs made everybody's night 1000% funnier

'He had a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they made Sinatra look like a hobo.' Gotta love a good Anchorman quote.


Speaking of Katy Perry, the 'Fireworks' superstar performed for the 4th time at the show in 2013, breaking the record for most performances at the MTV EMAs

K-Pez looked absolutely GORGEOUS as she floated into the air whilst performing her huge hit 'Unconditionally'. #ICON


In 2010 when Rihanna stole the show with a blistering live performance of 'Only Girl In The World'

We could watch this performance over and over again. You know, we're actually starting to believe that Rihanna really is the ONLY girl in the world.


When rap GOD Eminem became the artist with the most MTV EMA wins EVER

In 2013, Slim Shady received the 'Global Icon' award making him the artist with the most wins ever in the history of the awards. In case you're wondering it was his FOURTEENTH trophy.


When Miley Cyrus lived it up in true Amsterdam style.

Oh Miley. Whether you approve or not, it was a defining moment in the night and sparked a new era in Miley's career.

When 2010 host Eva Longoria proved she was the Queen of costume changes with a total of THIRTEEN!

Yup... that's Eva... dressed as a ham. We don't really have anything else to say about this...


But then again, maybe Nicki Minaj took the 'Queen of costumes' crown a few years later when she appeared in this...

She truly was the hostess with the mostess in 2014. The thing is... how big does your wardrobe need to be to fit this masterpiece into?


And of course this year we'll see the awards hosted by TWO people for the very first time EVER. Good luck Ed and Ruby!
