The ceremony was hosted by Samuel L. Jackson for the first time and opened with a performance by Kanye West who turned proceedings into reality TV when he headlined with his feelings for Kim Kar’trashian.

He performed his track Cold and placed centre-stage emphasis on the lyrics: "And I'll admit, I had fell in love with Kim, Around the same time she had fell in love with him, Well that's cool, baby girl, do ya thang, Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team."

Everyone ooh’d, aah’d and tweeted about it and the ceremony went on to hand out awards in 23 categories. Performances included a special tribute to Whitney Houston featuring Mariah Carey, Brandy and Whitney's mother Cissy.

Our Lira didn’t win the Best International Act: Africa category unfortunately but as you can see from the snap, she made up for it with her pizzazz on the red carpet.

Hey everyone - a headsup that the awards are on at 21h00 instead of 20h00. We were originally told 20h00 when we asked TopTV but it's changed to 21h00 because of the time difference between zones.
