The 2020 MTV European Music Awards were held Sunday from various locations throughout Europe to accommodate the ongoing pandemic. Its ceremony was hosted by British girl group Little Mix, minus member Jesy Nelson, who could not attend for health reasons. Hot musicians like Madison Beer, pictured, walked the EMA’s red carpet.

Besides Little Mix, there were 14 other performers as part of the ceremony, including household names Alicia Keys and Sam Smith alongside new stars Doja Cat and Yungblud of TikTok fame.
