2012 MTV EMAs: One Direction, Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber among winners

EMAsThe 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards were held in Frankfurt on Sunday, and even though not every star to take home a trophy was in attendance for the show, many of them still have a reason to smile after the fact. The show had a decidedly young feel, with the majority of the winners under the age of 21. In addition to that, there were also some singing-competition connects courtesy of a former “X Factor” contestant (in One Direction) along with a standout from the world of “Canadian Idol” in Carly Rae Jepsen.

Check out the full list of winners below, which include everything from touring honors to a pick of the best fanbase. Are you happy with the winners? Be sure to share your thoughts at the bottom of this article.

Considering that Bieber is in the middle of a tabloid scandal surrounding his breakup with Selena Gomez, these wins probably mean more to him than just about anyone else on the show at this point. However, it is a bit of a thrill that several acts on this list are new to the music scene, and the EMAs did a great job of not just re-hashing the same singers over and over again.
