North American artists dominated the MTV European Music Awards Sunday night snagging awards in top categories.
Eva Longoria of Desperate Housewives hosted the show in Madrid where U.K. artists like Muse, Plan B, and Alexandra Burke were left in the dust.
American pop artist and performer Lady Gaga, who accepted her awards via satellite, bagged three wins including female artist of the year, best pop act and best song for "Bad Romance," according to the Star Tribune.
Newlywed Katy Perry won best video for "California Gurls," and Canadian Justin Bieber snagged the best male artist and best male push act, the BBC reported.
While European artists lost in the main categories, they won awards in smaller areas like best UK and Ireland act, which went to Marina and the Diamonds.
