Janet Jackson Slays Medley & All The Other 2018 MTV EMAs Performances

The 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards took place at the Bizkaia Arena in Bilbao, Spain this past weekend. Hailee Steinfeld hosted the event which saw Camila Cabello walk away with the most awards- four in total including Best Song and Best Video for “Havana.”

For me though, the big winner was Janet Jackson. The 52-year-old music legend was honored with the Global Icon Award. To celebrate, she performed a medley of her current single “Made For Now” along with her smashes “Rhythm Nation” and “All For You.” Naturally, girlfriend slayed it. She was giving me barefoot contessa African realness.

Other performers who took to the stage included Little Mix, Nicki Minaj, Panic! at the Disco, Hailee Steinfeld, Bebe Rexha, Halsey, Jason Derulo, Alessi Cara, Jack & Jack, Rosalia and Anne-Marie. Check out all the performances below.
