Ariana Grande, who did not attend, was shut out of all five of her nominations.

Other winners included Dua Lipa, who took the "Best Pop", Shawn Mendes who won "Best Live" and 5 Seconds of Summer who received "Best Rock". Before accepting her award she kicked off with a performance of her newest single, 'Made For Now", then going on to move through a medley of her biggest anthems, including "All For You" and "Rhythm Nation'.

"Speak out for a spirit that crosses all borders, recognizes the dignity of all people and affirms the beauty of all faiths". Speak out for an all-embracing love, because it's love that will heal our wounds.

Thanking his fans for their "undying love and support", the Subang-raised rapper added: "I am truly humbled and blessed I had the entirety of Malaysia supporting me". "So let's lift our voices". She also performed with Jason Derulo and David Guetta, for their song, "Goodbye". "Mama loves you", she said.

"I'm sick, I'm repulsed, I'm infuriated by the double standards that continue to treat women as second-class citizens", she continued.

United States veteran Janet Jackson was crowned a "global icon", a title previously awarded to U2, Queen, Whitney Houston and Eminem.

During her acceptance speech, the R&B legend called on fans to join her in standing up for women's rights in light of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements against sexual misconduct and inequality. That's important. [And] to stay grounded. "Teamwork makes the dream work". "Be with your friends".
