Hometown girl Heid Klum dazzled as the host of the 2012 MTV EMA while Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, No Doubt, Psy, Muse, Pitbull, Fun., Carly Rae Jepsen, Rita Ora and The Killers delivered electrifying performances. But before they got on stage, they had to walk the red carpet!

Hosted by hometown girl Heidi Klum, MTV’s 19th annual EMA, held Sunday, November 11th in Frankfurt, Germany, was a beautiful, jaw-dropping spectacle, filled with aerialists, pyrotechnics, lasers, elaborate light shows, and incredible choreography, delivering on what Klum had promised would be a magical night.

Klum was charming and entertaining as always – and proved to be a great sport from the first minute of the show. She kicked off the evening with a tumble down a toilet bowl (emerging into the surreal circus wonderland that was the show’s theme/setting), did a hysterical dance duet with Psy, and took hosting to new heights – literally – by spinning in a hoop high above the audience.

Presenters at the “2012 MTV EMA” included songstress Lana Del Rey, who won the award for Best
Alternative; reality star and socialite Kim Kardashian, who brought along boyfriend Kanye West as her date; GRAMMY® nominated musicians/actors Nick, Kevin and Joe Jonas; Brett Davern of MTV’s popular scripted show “Awkward”; the cast of “Geordie Shore” (MTV UK’s #1 show of all time); and supermodels Anne V and Isabeli Fontana.
