The full list of winners can be found here, with the ‘Select your Region’ option at the bottom enabling you to view the country-level categories.

Diodato wins Best Italian Act

He may not have made it to Eurovision this year, but this should be a suitable consolation. Despite the ongoing pandemic, Diodato has had a hugely successful year, winning the prestigious Sanremo festival and going Platinum with his winning entry “Fai Rumore“. Now, as with his predecessor Mahmood, he has won Best Italian Act at the MTV EMAs.

Margaret wins Best Polish Act

Poland’s Margaret has had a glorious return to the spotlight following a break from the spotlight late last year. Following a string of successful singles via her own label, she has won Best Polish Act at the MTV EMAs. She previously received this award at the 2018 ceremony.

Fernando Daniel wins Best Portuguese Act 

Another repeat offender from the Eurovision universe was Portugal’s Fernando Daniel. Fernando competed in Festival da Canção 2017 alongside eventual winner Salvador Sobral, placing 5th with “Poema a dois”. Having won Best Portuguese Act last year, he has defended his title for the second year in a row. Could a FdC return be on the cards?
