Eminem, who opened the show by unveiling his new single Walk on Water - ahead of the release on Friday of his latest album Revival - won for best hip hop artist.

Mendes also won the Biggest Fans award earlier in the evening, and is still up for Best Artist - against Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift.

Notable performances included local London grime star Stormzy, who took to the stage poking out of the sunroof of a police vehicle, and Travis Scott, who entered standing atop what looked like a floating hawk. Taking the stage clad in a bathrobe and towel, she kept things moving, changed outfits every few minutes and gamely joshed in video clips with the stars of pirate-radio sitcom "People Just Do Nothing".

North Korean shot at while defecting to South
South Korean forces have identified him only as "A" and said the man arrived in the country on Friday. The majority of defectors travel through China to defect to South Korea , according to Reuters .

Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello was honoured with the best pop prize, while Coldplay snatched the best rock award.

The best video, claimed by United States rapper Kendrick Lamar, was one of the few awards to be chosen by the MTV team. "You are wonderful, thank you".

Accepting their award, Jared Leto said: "Thank you". Their songs, our prayers, their concerts, a church.

The Irish band dedicated the award to label boss Chris Blackwell of Island records, who signed them nearly 40 years ago. And in a nod to a new generation of artists, Bono crooned an a capella version of Stormzy's "Blinded by Your Grace".
