Wearing a number of garish outfits during the evening, Gaga‘s awards included Video Of The Year, Best Female, Best Female Video and Best Dance Video, all of which were awarded for ‘Bad Romance’.


Elsewhere, Florence And The Machine‘s ‘Dogs Days Are Over’ won the award for Best Art Direction, Muse‘s ‘Uprising’ was named the Best Special Effects video and Eminem‘s ‘Not Afraid’ took home two awards. The award for Best Rock Video was given to 30 Seconds To Mars for ‘Kings And Queens’.

The ceremony also saw performances from Kanye West and Taylor Swift, both of whom returned to the ceremony after West invaded the stage during Swift’s acceptance speech last year.

Swift played a song called ‘Innocent’, which appeared to be about West. “Thirty-two and still growing up now, who you are is not what you did, you’re still an innocent“, she sang.
