DUSSELDORF (Reuters) – Taylor Swift won four awards at the MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday, including best video for her 10-minute album “All Too Well.”

The event, broadcast on MTV from Dusseldorf, West Germany, honored musicians from Brazil to South Korea.

Here, the Kalush Orchestra of Ukraine, the winner of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, performed the song “Stefania” in the arena lit up in the national blue and yellow colors of Ukraine.

American pop singer Swift, wearing an openwork, bejeweled dress, won the awards for Best Female Artist, Best Pop, Best Video and Best Long-Term Video.

“I feel like I’ve learned a lot about how film can be a natural extension of my stories,” Swift said after accepting the Long Form Video award.

In “All Too Well,” Swift takes inspiration from 1970s Hollywood and tells the story of a romantic relationship that falls apart, leaving behind only a scarf and memories.

“It was amazing, I was there, I remember it so well,” Swift sings.

“I can lick it, I can ride it while you slide and slide” from Minaj’s 1981 hit “Super Freak” in her winning song “Super Freaky Girl.”

British pop star Harry Styles won Best Concert, while Thailand’s Lalisa “Lisa” Manoban won Best K-Pop. Global K-pop phenomenon BTS from South Korea won the biggest fans category.

The show was hosted by British pop star Rita Ora and director Taika Waititi, who married earlier this year. Ora herself won in the “Best Appearance” category.

Dusseldorf has a musical legacy as the home of pioneering German electronic band Kraftwerk, who influenced generations of pop and dance musicians with memorable songs such as “Autobahn”.

In 2011, the city also hosted the Eurovision Song Contest.

Screaming teenagers watched the stars walk the red carpet ahead of the event, which was broadcast from the PSD Bank Dome.

Julian Lennon, son of the Beatles’ John Lennon, said as he entered that he hadn’t been to a concert in years and was looking forward to it.

The winner of the “Best Rock” award, the rock group Muse, said that it dedicated its victory to the people of Ukraine and Iran.

Head of the Kalush Orchestra Oleg Psyuk, wearing a pink cap, said before the performance that he hopes more Ukrainian bands will participate next year.
