What a shocker, One Direction have seen off the likes of Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs and Calvin Harris to win the title of ‘Best UK & Ireland Act’ at this year’s MTV EMAs.

And no, you didn’t miss the EMAs – they’re happening on 10 Nov – this particular vote was to choose a ‘regional’ best act who’ll then be in contention with four other North European best acts to be elected to the ten act shortlist of finalists for the Worldwide Act category. It’s really pretty simple, I think.

Anyway. The EMAs are being broadcast from Amsterdam this year, and will feature live performances by Katy Perry, Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus. And shall we now cut to 1D’s new ‘Midnight Memories’ single ‘Story Of My Life’? Yeah, let’s, please.
