Award shows always provide a great opportunity for something unexpected to happen, and the MTV Europe Music Awards are no different. Ahead of this year’s EMAS, relive some of the most shocking moments from the past right here!
MTV EMAs day is here! The show takes place in Europe, and the rules about what can be broadcast there are far less strict than what’s allowed in the U.S.A. — so we can expect some pretty outrageous stunts to go down. Click through the gallery to see the craziest things that have gone down on the show in the past!
Okay, we can’t start this one out without mentioning Miley Cyrus at the 2013 show. You know, when she totally lit up and smoked a joint on stage! The singer was at the height of her comeback during the EMAs that year, and won Best Video for her hit “Wrecking Ball,” but instead of just giving an acceptance speech and walking off, Miley lit a suspicious looking cigarette and took a long drag right there in front of the audience. Whoa!
No stranger to causing controversy at MTV award shows, Kanye West, naturally, also makes the list. When he lost the Best Video award to Justice & Simian in 2006, the rapper stormed the stage and went on a major expletive-filled rant about why his vid “Touch The Sky” should have won. His reasoning? It “cost a million dollars [and] Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons. If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility.” Uhh….okay.
Hayden Panettiere got to experience the craziness in person when she was presenting the the award for Best Song in 2011, and a naked man rushed right on stage in the middle of her speech! The man was an Irish actor, who claims the whole stunt was not planned for the show — and Hayden’s face totally said it all. She was beyond shocked!
