He’s known for his singing skills and his no nonsense attitude.

And true to form, Liam Gallagher congratulated MTV for ‘recognising his brilliance’ while collecting the first ever Rock Icon award as he led the winners at the EMAs 2019 held at the FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Spain.  

While the former Oasis singer, 47, took home his gong, on the other end of the musical spectrum, Halsey, 25, was shocked to win Best Pop and Best Look at the star-studded ceremony on Sunday evening.

Oh Liam! Liam Gallagher, 47, congratulated MTV for ‘recognising his brilliance’ while collecting the first ever Rock Icon award as he led the winners at the EMAs 2019 on Sunday evening

The One of Us hitmaker was honoured at the annual music event for his legendary rock career with Oasis and also as a solo artist.

Speaking on stage he said: ‘Thank you man. I won’t keep you too long but I want to congratulate Seville for having a lovely city.

‘I want to congratulate MTV for recognising my brilliance. Thanks for the award. I wear it well.’ 

Liam then swiftly turned on his heel and walked off stage, but later closed the show with a performance of a new track, which led into the Oasis hit Wonderwall.

Grateful: Speaking on stage he said: ‘Thank you man. I won’t keep you too long but I want to congratulate Seville for having a lovely city

It was announced a few days ago that Liam would be honoured with the accolade and would also be performing a song from his time in the Britpop group and a track from his latest solo LP Why Me? Why Not. 

A post on the MTV EMAs’ Twitter account announced: ‘Liam Gallagher is @mtvema’s 2019 Rock Icon. Watch the performance live on @mtv this Sunday November 3rd #mtvema (sic)’

The Wall of Glass singer was also nominated for the Best Rock accolade alongside Green Day, Panic! At The Disco, Imagine Dragons and The 1975.

Liam has beaten his estranged older brother and former bandmate Noel Gallagher, 52, to the Rock Icon title.

Oh no he didn’t! ‘I want to congratulate MTV for recognising my brilliance. Thanks for the award. I wear it well,’ concluded the star before leaving the stage

Winning! Meanwhile, Halsey was shocked to win Best Pop at the MTV EMAs, triumphing over pop superstars including Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Jonas Brothers and Shawn Mendes

The Shockwave hitmaker was crowned Godlike Genius at the 2018 NME Awards, something which he admitted was a long-time coming, and should have happened to him at the same time as Noel, who won the title in 2012. 

Liam said at the ceremony that he believes they both put in equal amounts of hard work during their time in the band.

The rocker fumed: ‘I think we both should have won one at the same time. Just because we both put a lot of work into those songs.

‘I know he wrote them, but I sung them so I have got the hump about that. But it’s nice to get an award isn’t it?’


Fashionista: The singing sensation – who wore four different outfits throughout the evening – also walked away with the gong for Best Look

Unexpected: While collecting her first award, Halsey said: ‘I feel so lucky to be making pop music at a time where pop music is so special’

Meanwhile, Halsey was shocked to win Best Pop at the MTV EMAs, triumphing over pop superstars including Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Jonas Brothers, Shawn Mendes and Becky G. 

Speaking as she collected the gong, the Graveyard singer said: ‘I don’t know where to stand. I didn’t think I was going to get this.

‘I feel so lucky to be making pop music at a time where pop music is so special. There are so many different genres all blending together.


Energetic: Halsey dazzled on stage as she sang from a horse merry-go-round

Racy: Although she didn’t win an awards on the night, Dua Lipa, 24, put on a show to remember as she opened the 26th MTV EMA Awards with her new single Don’t Start Now


Racy: The singer, 24, ensured all eyes were on her as she took to the stage in a black cut-out leotard which showcased her washboard abs

‘I don’t get to do it without amazing people like you so gracias [thank you], I really appreciate it.’

Although she didn’t win an awards on the night, Dua Lipa, 24, put on a show to remember as she opened the 26th MTV EMA Awards with her new single Don’t Start Now.  

The singer ensured all eyes were on her as she took to the stage in a black cut-out leotard which showcased her washboard abs.   

Dua, who had changed out of her black floor-length red carpet dress and into the thong leotard, appeared in her element as she strutted around in satin heeled boots. 

The One Kiss hitmaker teamed the racy one-piece with sheer stockings which had black piping running along the central panel.  


Time to shine: After Dua Lipa’s opening number, Mabel was next up to perform 

Showgirl: At one point she was whipped off her feet and carried by a flurry of backing dancers 

She wore her blonde hair in a sleek bun, which her dancers- who were clad in neon yellow bodysuits- emulated.  

Dua oozed stage presence as she pranced around stage before performing a high-octane dance routine. 

After her performance the London-born beauty made her third outfit change of the night as she slipped into a navy oversized minidress.

Taking her seat, Dua’s proud boyfriend Anwar Hadid kissed her on the cheek before they turned to face the stage to watch the rest of the show.

Mabel’s performance was packed with energetic dance moves, and at one point she was whipped off her feet and carried by a flurry of backing dancers.
