Rita Ora has kicked off this year's MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) in spectacular style.

The singer, who only released her debut album earlier this year, was lowered to the stage suspended in a cage before launching into a version of R.I.P.

She was followed by US pop band Fun who played their massive hit We Are Young, before Carly Rae Jepson performed Call Me Maybe.

The event in Frankfurt, Germany, was hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum and had a circus theme with trapeze artists and fire dancers on stage.

Next up was Alicia Keys who performed Girl On Fire, before reality star Kim Kardashian presented the Best Song award to Jepson for Call Me Maybe.

Reformed rockers No Doubt then performed their new single, and the cast of Geordie Shore named Justin Bieber the Best Male Act. The Canadian singer recorded a thank you message for his fans, saying: "This is the greatest night ever".

The award for Best Hip Hop act went to Nicki Minaj, while David Guetta won Best Electronic Act.

Then The Killers took to the stage to play Runaways.

The Best Live Act gong went to Swift - her second award of the night.

Korean pop sensation Psy got the biggest reaction of the evening when he played his breakout hit Gangnam Style complete with dozens of lookalike dancers.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
