The 17th annual MTV Europe Music Awards ceremony was held in Madrid on Sunday.

Here are the winners:

Best Song: Lady Gaga for “Bad Romance”

And best video winner Katy Perry, who recently (and finally) married Russell Brand, performed her latest single “Firework.” She literally sparked onstage. Perry was tied with Lady Gaga for the most nominations at the EMAs so her performance had been highly anticipated. People have been saying both good and not-so-good comments on her performance but she sparked. Can you tell she is very happy?
