The Highlights of the 2016 EMAs

What. A. Night.

August 14, 2017

The 2016 EMAs was basically one big OMG moment.  Here are the unforgettable, highlights of the night.



Bruno Mars blew us away and totally electrified the crowd with the opening performance of the night.  As usual, his dance moves were pure magic.



Then DNCE performed atop a floating stage that hovered above the EMAs crowd.  NBD.




Zara Larsson kicked things up several notches with a strong performance of "Lush Life" and "Ain't My Fault" back to back. We always knew Larsson was talented but she blew us away with her dance moves during her performance of "Ain't My Fault." The girl can work it and own it. 




Green Day's totally insane performance of their brand new song "Bang Bang" rocked the entire Rotterdam Ahoy arena.  The punk rock energy could hardly be contained in the massive arena. 



The Weeknd's performance of "Starboy" was flawless but it was the mini galaxy hovering behind him that blew everyone's minds.  The performance was lit…up with stars.  Only at the EMAs!



Bebe gave a whole new meaning to "I Got U" when she appeared atop the cutest, fuzziest, "U" to grace an award show stage.  We'll definitely be dreamingor nightmaring—of "U."



With a full-on orchestra accompanying him on stage, Lukas Graham had tears dropping and hearts breaking all over the Ahoy Rotterdam. 



It was a totally unreal moment when rain started pouring on OneRepublic in the Ahoy Rotterdam during the band's performance of  "Let's Hurt Tonight."   






Last, but definitely not least, Bebe's hilarious pranks had us cracking up all night.   We're still laughing at the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton look-a-likes she had haunting the EMA stars in their dressing rooms.
