We all gathered around the TV last night, Haribos in one hand and iPhone in the other, waiting to see Marco Mengoni or Lena hopefully win an award at the MTV Europe Music Awards in the Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam. Much to our disappointment, Marco didn’t even show up and although Lena arrived looking lovely as ever, the Best Worldwide Act award that they were nominated for went to some Chinese singer instead called Chris Lee, who looked strangely like Marija Serifovic…
The person (or persons) that we least expected to be gracing the red carpet of the EMAs was Ireland’s Eurovision alum, Jedward. Yes, I repeat JEDWARD. The crazy twosome rocked up wearing very clean white jackets covered in European flags, which would have been very appropriate for Eurovision!
In true “jepic” style, the twins wasted no time in standing at the front and dancing like crazy to every song possible. It was impossible to miss those white silhouettes, whether you recognised them as our Jedward or not. They even had time to socialise with superstars such as Katy Perry, Jared Leto and take a few sticking-out-tongues selfies with Miley Cyrus!
Out of all of the Eurovision artists nominated for national awards, we only spotted Lena and Jedward out there on the big night in Amsterdam. Have we missed anyone? Did you watch the EMAs, and did you want a bigger Eurovision influence on the EUROPE music awards?
