Fifth Harmony kick off MTV Europe Music Awards with red carpet performance


American girl band Fifth Harmony opened the red carpet at the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) in Milan in style.

The group, who finished third in the second season of the USA X Factor, sang and danced down the red carpet performing their hit Worth It.

Singer Ed Sheeran and model Ruby Rose will host the EMAs, which promises an intriguing battle between Taylor Swift, who has nine nominations, and Justin Bieber who has scored six nods.

New Romantic favourites Duran Duran will receive the first ever MTV Video Visionary Award.

The chart-topping 1980s band will be given the honour for their strong visual presence, and for influencing a generation of musicians with some of the best pioneering music videos of all time.

Meanwhile, a good deal of anticipation surrounds Bieber's forthcoming performance because he broke down in tears at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in August.

The Canadian pop star explained why he had been so overwhelmed on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show: "I just wasn't expecting them to support me in the way they did. Last time I was at an awards show, I was booed."

After confirming his appearance at the EMAs, Bieber said: "I'm excited to share this performance and this new material with my fans around the world. The EMAs are always a blast. I'm glad to be back and it's going to be fun".

The star is due to release his new album Purpose on November 13, the same date as One Direction's much-anticipated fifth studio album, Made In The AM.
