Supermodel Heidi Klum got into a circus mood for this year’s MTV Europe music awards at Frankfurt’s
100-year-old Festhalle.

Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift shared the main spoils, each scooping three prizes at one of the biggest nights in the pop calendar.

The 22-year-old American country singer won Best Female, Best Live and Best Look.

The Canadian teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber matched Swift’s tally, claiming Best Male for the second year in a row as well as Best Pop and Best World Stage.

Fellow Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen went home with two awards – Best Song for “Call Me Maybe” and the bizarrely-named Best Push that recognises up-and-coming talent.

Best Video was perhaps no surprise, given to the South Korean dance sensation Psy for his record-breaking hit Gangnam Style.

It has been viewed more than 670 million times on
YouTube and received a record-breaking 4.9 million “likes” on Facebook since being released in July.

Rihanna, who led the nominations with six, failed to pick up a single award this time.
