MTV Awards live update...

There was controversy last night in Stockholm at the 2000 MTV awards by European artists who were shocked after artists from America cleaned up on all the awards with only three exceptions. Irish boy band Westlife won the Best UK and Ireland (as we predicted) act but snubbed the awards after not being asked to perform.

“The band were asked to present an award but not asked to perform. So they will not be here tonight to pick up their award,” the bands manager Louis Walsh told last night backstage in Stockholm where he was a guest of Ronan Keating one of the performers at the awards.

Walsh continued “It supposed to be the European Music Awards but all the winners are from America and South America. While Westlife have seven numbers ones and have not even been asked to perform. Figure that out.”

However the Irish were out flying the flag in the form of super-rockers U2 who opened the show with their current number one Beautiful Day to over 10,000 of an audience and one billion viewers world-wide.

The award winners included Best Male went to Ricky Martin, Best R&B act went to Jennifer Lopes who are both from South America. Best Rock went to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers while the Best Group award went to the Backstreet Boys both from the America.

Following that the Best New Act award went to Blink 182, Best Dance to the queen of pop Madonna, while the Best Video award went to Moby for his video Natural Blues.

More American acts followed with the Best Hip Hop awards going to Eminem and then another award the Best Female which went to Madonna. Best Album went to Eminem to make it his second for the evening for his new album.

The came the biggest awards Best Song for 2000 which went to Robbie Williams for Rock DJ.

The last and the most controversial award went to the Best UK and Ireland act which was won by Westlife, who snubbed the awards.

The only other English act to win apart from Robbie Williams was the Best Pop award which was picked up by the All Saints.
