The 2013 MTV EMA’s proved to be an out of this world night full of awesome, gif-worthy moments, killer performances, and cheery celebs. Redfoo kept the space party pumping all night as the show’s host. He stripped off his suit and slipped into his most comfortable attire (a shiny, tiny speedo), and later in the show managed to stage dive into the crowd. Miley lit up a joint on stage. Will Ferrell made an appearance as the infamous Ron Burgundy and provided laughs and awkward backstage interviews with celebrities. Eminem took home the Global Icon Award and reminded us why he is a “rap god.” But the performances are what really made the night an unforgettable one.
Katy Perry shined like a prism as she sang “Unconditionally” to the crowd. (see what we did there?) Iggy Azalea turned up the stage with Robin Thicke- minus the twerking and giant teddy bears. Icona Pop proved we all love it with their intergalactic- glitter filled performance. Kings of Leon performed "Beautiful War" among a stage of bright lights. The Killers owned the stage with a medley of their hits and newcomers Imagine Dragons rocked the stage with their hit “Radioactive.” Snoop also stopped by to kick it old school with his “Gin and Juice” performance. We’re also guessing he stopped by because hey- it’s Amsterdam.
But the sexiest moment of the night would have to be Bruno Mar’s “Gorilla” performance. The singer’s sultry voice was accompanied by an even sexier dance partner. The tantalizing pole dancer flipped, spun, rolled, and even hung upside down on the pole. She complimented the song and made Bruno Mar’s singing even sexier.
After a shocking VMA’s performance in the states, we were all giddy with anticipation to see what Miley would at this awards show. But she kept all the antics at home this time. Well, she still managed to do a little twerking in her sexy space-inspired silver dress as she opened up the show with “We Can’t Stop.” It wouldn't be an awards show without some Miley twerking now would it? But what really got people talking this year was her power hitting Wrecking Ball performance- once again proving that this girl can really SING. Oh, and of course her lighting up a joint on stage as she accepted her award for best video. Hey… when in Amsterdam right?
