Host Hailee Steinfeld opened the show with a video sketch featuring her breaking into an art gallery to "steal" one of the MTV trophies, only to then emerge on stage in a tiny silver dress.

The prince's post was made about the same time that the singer himself tweeted about his win, which was announced ahead of the awards ceremony's live broadcast from the Bizkaia Arena (Bilbao Exhibition Centre) in Barakaldo.

Nicki also went home with two awards for Best Look and Best Hip-Hop, during which she thanked her fans and mother.
