The nominees that received the most awards were Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. The nominees that received the most nominations were Justin Bieber and Beyoncé. Once I saw the commercial for the EMAs, I was excited because it said that Shawn Mendes was performing, and I absolutely love his music. I really did enjoy watching the EMAs on Sunday November 6, 2016. My favorite performances were Shawn Mendes, Bruno Mars, and DNCE. In the end, the MTV European Music Awards 2016 were very entertaining. I loved that I got the chance to see Shawn Mendes win two awards and hear him sing one of my favorite songs, ‘’Mercy,’’ from his new album Illuminate.
