The only actual European artist to win at the MTV Europe Music Awards this year was “Someone Like You” songstress Adele, who picked up the prize for MTV UK & Ireland Act. South Korean boy band BIGBANG won Best Worldwide.
A bit of an unexpected twist came when Hayden Panettiere attempted to present Lady Gaga with the award for Best Song, but was interrupted by a naked man who ran across the stage before he finally walked up and engaged in nervous conversation with the actress. “Oh my god,” Panettiere laughed as the man stood beside her. “Um, hello there.”

Interesting how there just happened to be no security guards on hand to grab this guy, right?
