The South Korean pop group BTS won a leading four awards including best song for 'Dynamite' and best group at the MTV Europe Music Awards Sunday night, while Lady Gaga took the best artist prize. BTS also picked up best fans and best virtual live for Bang Bang Con.

The show honoring the best in global music aired Sunday on the network with performances from Alicia Keys, Sam Smith, Doja Cat and DaBaby. The girl group Little Mix hosted.

Gaga, who went into the event with the most nominations, beat out Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus and The Weeknd for the best artist prize. She lost out for the best video, however, which went to DJ Khaled for 'Popstar'. The collaboration with Drake bested the likes of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion for 'WAP'.

Cardi B did pick up the best hip hop award, however. Coldplay won best rock, Haley Williams got best alternative and Little Mix was named best pop. And the best Latin award went to Karol G, who also won the best collaboration for 'Tusa' featuring Nicki Minaj.

David Guetta, who won best electronic, also performed at the show from a stage in Budapest. Singer-songwriter YUNGBLUD won the best push and Doja Cat took home the best new artist honour.

For a third year, the MTV EMAs handed out a generation change award, this time to five women fighting for racial and social justice around the world: Kiki Mordi, Temi Mwale, Catherhea Potjanaporn, Luiza Brasil and Raquel Willis.

Eddie Van Halen, who died last month, was also remembered in a tribute featuring Tom Morello and St. Vincent.
