In addition to hosting the event, the group were nominated for four awards, and they also performed their new single Sweet Melody, which comes from their most recent album Confetti.   

Perrie, 27, Jade, 27, and Leigh-Anne, 29, looked sensational as they took to the stage to perform in London.

The virtual and socially-distanced MTV EMAs 2020…

The socially-distanced and pre-recorded event saw a star-studded line-up from across the world with appearances from  Los Angeles, London and Canada.   

Little Mix hosted the show, without member Jesy Nelson who had been taken ill. They girls appeared on a computer generated stage within the ‘stadium’.  

Most of the show was filmed in advance on November 1. 

The ceremony was held at a virtual stadium which was  full of waving and cheering fans. 

Alicia Keys performed her new song from Los Angeles, Maluma sang from a penthouse in Miami, while David Guetta went all out from a stage built in the pool of the Széchenyi Bath in Hungary. 

Acts stood two metres apart from one another for their glamorous photocalls.
