2012 MTV EMA Winners List

Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber took the lead in award wins at the 2012 MTV EMAs held in Frankfurt, Germany — but since The Biebs was a no show, the spotlight was all on Swift. The ‘Red’ songstress not only went home with Best Female, Best Live Act and Best Look awards, but also made her debut on the EMA stage as a ringleader with ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’

Bieber — who is currently in the middle of his Believe tour — earned Best Male, Best Pop and Best Worldswide Stage trophies.

Despite leading in nominations (six!), Rihanna did not win a single award. Never mind the lack of EMA recognition — RiRi’s too busy performing on ‘SNL’ and getting ready for her 777 World Tour. We think she’ll be able to brush this one off.

Other big MTV EMA winners of the night were Carly Rae Jepsen — who won Best Song for her summer smash ‘Call Me Maybe’ and Best Push Act — Lana Del Rey and ‘Gangnam Style’ dancer Psy.

Check out the full list of winners — voted by fans — below.
