EIL.COM'S...'2002 MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS' PAGE

Welcome to eil.coms MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS page Welcome to eil.coms MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS page

The biggest and the shiniest music award ceremony on this side of the Atlantic has got to be the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA). Each year the event gets bigger and bigger. The stage is graced by the pop world's rich and famous; thanking us all, crying, flirting, even performing.

The 2002 MTV EMAs were held on November 14th in Barcelona. The organisers lined up some amazing exclusive presenters and performers. The host for the ceremony was P.Diddy who gave tribute to the recently murdered Jay Master J of Run DMC. He also managed to entice one young lady to strip in return for his pinky ring !!

Acts that performed on the night included Enrique Iglesias' with 'Love To See You Cry' which he mixed with 'White Wedding', the 80s classic by Billy Idol. Pink rocked with a medley of her three singles, while Christina Aguilera's raunchy performance of her new single 'Dirrty' raised more than just a few eyebrows. Robbie's World Premiere of his new single 'Feel' was overshadowed in the end by the man of the night, Eminem.

Scooping three awards (Linkin Park, the Chili Peppers and Kylie had two each) and giving a blinding performance made Marshall the man. His powerful showing of 'Cleaning Out My Closet' and awesome new single 'Losing Myself' had the crowd going mad.

Check all the winners and the losing nominees below. Each link will take you to pages of fantastic rare and collectable music CDs, Vinyl and memorabilia.

BEST GROUP

The Best Group category is one of the most prestigious at the EMAs. This year's nominations lined up some heavyweights in U2, who were nominated for a second year running, and also the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The new pretenders to U2's crown are Coldplay, and this was one of their four nominations at this years awards. No Doubt have had a fantastic year and were also in the running for this award.

But the winners on the night were Linkin Park.

BEST SONG

Another couple of the multi-nominated artists lined up for the Best Song award. Last year a bunch of cartoons, Gorillaz, picked up the accolade so at least this year some normality has resumed.

If the prize was to go to the biggest selling single then Nickelback would just beat Enrique. Both tracks topped the charts across Europe for weeks on end.

However the selection is voted by the viewers so the rise of Pink was rewarded on the night.

BEST FEMALE

Pink, Kylie and Shakira all added to their multiple nominations with another showing in this Best Female category. Of course the judges are the viewers of MTV so they will decide.

Perhaps it was P.Diddy or her recent love life but this year's Best Female was Jennifer Lopez.

BEST MALE

Last year it was Robbie who took home this award beating off Eminem. However Mr Mathers' competition in 2002 came from Enrique and the red hot hip-hop star Nelly.

In the end no-one was much competition for Eminem and he picked up his first award of the night.

BEST HIP-HOP

Eminem was nominated for four EMA's including this hotly contested one. Between Nelly, Ja Rule and Eminem the US charts have been under the spell of hip-hop for most of the last year. Their success is global and their European fans must decide who is to be crowned on the night.

Can you win two years in a row ? Clearly you can because Eminem picked up the gong again.

BEST NEW ACT

The nominations for this year's Best New Act did not include any run-away winner, such as Dido in 2001, but the choices show how strong new music across the genres. The Strokes are particular Indie favourites in the UK, while Royksopp's sumptious melodies have won fans from Ibiza to Europe's clubland. Avril, Shakira and The Calling all refreshingly write and play their own material too.

The winners of the Best New Act were (drum rolls....) The Calling. (cheers....)

BEST R&B

The shortlist for this category must have been decided before the recent explosion of Ms. Dynamite because without a doubt she is THE R&B LADY of the moment. Could Ashanti repeat her recent success at the MOBO Awards or was it Alicia Keys matching her victory at the Grammys

Ladies and Gentlemen the 2002 MTV European Music Award for Best R&B goes to...

BEST ALBUM

The lucky viewers of MTV had a tough decision to make between all these superb albums. The typically high standard of the category was maintained with the worldwide smash hits of Pink, No Doubt and Eminem seeming the favourites. However Coldplay's stunning success in the USA must be remembered and write off Kylie at your peril.

The MTV viewers voted in their thousands and decided Eminem had produced this year's Best Album.

BEST DANCE

A bizarre selection of artists nominated for this category. The returning Underworld and twisted house sounds of Basement Jaxx were ignored in favour of Kylie, Sophie and the relatively unknown DB Boulevard. The only obvious dance act in the line-up Moby did grace the stage with a cool performance but did he collect on the night?

BEST ROCK

With the introduction of a 'Hard Rock' category to this year's selections the more standard 'Rock' category is now a much lighter affair. The rise of Coldplay and resurrgent Red Hot Chili Peppers were the favoured twosome in this category and...

...it was the funky monks of the Red Hot Chili Peppers who won.

BEST HARD ROCK

A new category to this year's awards, no doubt in appreciation of the huge successes of Nu-Metal in the world charts. No previous winners to give any clue of how the voting may go meant that the opportunity for reward was anyone's.

And the inaugral winners, Linkin Park, doubled their awards haul with this gong.

BEST LIVE ACT

Another peculiar array of stars to select from in this category. While U2 and Depeche Mode are undoubtably two of the world's best live acts they don't compare to the recent Korn tour which was breathtaking.

The initial favourites the Red Hot Chili Peppers were the rightful winners.

BEST POP

Anastacia won this category in 2001 but against the multi-nominated foursome of Pink, Kylie, Enrique and Shakira she was the least favoured. Deciding between that four, who had four nominations each, was a tough choice.

The one true princess of pop in the past few years, Miss Kylie Minogue, was crowned as the winner.

BEST VIDEO

If the nominees in the other categories seemed obvious to you then these selected videos were a refreshing reminder of what MTV was, and is, all about; Music videos. Some of the freakiest, funniest and finest music promos to choose from.

The winner was the dreamy video for Royksopp's 'Remind Me'.

BEST UK & IRELAND ACT

The Sugababes were nominated for a second year in this award for UK homegrown talent. However with the award magnet that is Ms Dynamite also in contention the winner was anything but obvious.

Unless of course you consider just how many millions of albums Coldplay have sold !!

THE WEB AWARD

You can check out the nominated websites and make your own mind up on who you think is the best but...

..on the night the award went to the beautiful looking, obsessively updated and damn fine site for Moby. A lot of the care and attention is done by the man himself.
