Divas, rock stars and pop starlets alike descended on Milan last night for the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards. Justin Bieber was the big winner of the night, taking home a whopping five trophies, including the coveted Best Male and Best Worldwide Act awards.

Justin nailed five out of the six awards he was nominated for, but in stark contrast, Taylor Swift was victorious in only one category out of nine (although it is the most decorated), winning best song for Bad Blood.
