Eminem collects trophies in Spain
Eminem was the big winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Barcelona, taking trophies for best album, best male singer and best hip-hop artist.
Kylie Minogue, Linkin Park and the Red Hot Chili Peppers each won two prizes Thursday night. The ceremony offered few surprises because Eminem was the clear pre-show favorite. He performed a selection of his most popular songs to a screaming crowd, but left out the expletives.
Visibly moved, the rapper thanked the audience and fans for their support, saying: “Thanks a lot. I couldn’t do it without you guys.”
Winners were decided by fans voting online, by mobile phone and at special MTV voting booths.
