MTV awards in Glasgow: Remembering when the MTV EMA’s came to Glasgow in 2014

We have taken a look back at the night when Glasgow hosted the MTV EMA awards at the Hydro

The Hydro was chosen as the venue to host the MTV EMAs (Europe Music Awards) back in 2014 with a host of stars arriving in the city for the event.

Scotland hadn’t hosted the awards since 2003, when they were held in Western Harbour in Edinburgh which saw acts such as Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, Justin Timberlake and The White Stripes head to the capital. Glasgow also welcomed a number of celebrities which ranged from Ozzy Osbourne to Nicki Minaj on the night.

There were performances from Ariana Grande, U2 and Ed Sheeran before guitarist Slash joined Biffy Clyro and Myles Kennedy to pay tribute to Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne who was recognised on the night with a special award.

Here’s a look back at some of the big names who stepped on up to the waterfront.
