The 2018 European Music Awards (EMA)opened in the best way imaginable — with a performance from the queen of hip-hop Nicki Minaj. Nicki performed Good Form flawlessly before being joined on stage by Little Mix for a performance of their hit Woman Like Me.

Hailee Steinfeld absolutely killed it both as the night’s host and a performer. She broke into an art gallery and let herself be spray painted by robots, all for the sake of the EMA. In between all this, she managed to put up an amazing performance of her newest hit Back To Life.

Halsey gave a raw and emotional performance of Without Me  and Jack & Jack’s performance of Rise was the trippiest sight of the night as they floated above the stage with black hole-looking-thing they called a whirlpool. Jason Derulo, David Guetta and Nicki Minaj combined forces to put on one of the most extra and most memorable performances of the night, beginning with Jason singing opera. The trio also performed Goodnight which transported the audience to another dimension.
 
This year’s Global Icon Award winner, Janet Jackson, stole the show with her fierce entrance and bare-footed performance of Made For Now, Rhythm Nation and All For You. She also used this platform to give a powerful speech about women’s rights. She asked viewers to embrace a spirit that “recognises the dignity of all people and affirms the beauty of all faiths.” Bebe Rexha went all out with her performance of I’m a Mess featuring 100 dancers. 

Camila Cabello was the night’s biggest winner with wins in four categories including Best Artist, Best Video and Best Song. Big-Ri and Meba Ofilia won the award for Best India Act.The grand finale saw Anne-Marie, Marshmello and Bastille take the stage to perform FRIENDS and Happier. The show ended with a confetti-filled bang.
