This was the first time since 2003 when the awards were held in Scotland and the fifth time the United Kingdom has hosted the MTV EMA since the show was hosted in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The event showcases the world's hottest musical acts in a different city each year.[3] The event was hosted by Nicki Minaj.[4][5][6]

Ariana Grande opened the show with "Problem" and "Break Free". Additional performances from The Magician, Years & Years, Vance Joy and Alicia Keys were featured at the O2 Academy Glasgow. Ozzy Osbourne received the award for Global Icon from Slash. Slash closed the show performing "Crazy Train" featuring The Conspirators and with Myles Kennedy and Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro on vocals.
