Cuban-American artist Camila Cabello emerged as the big winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards. She took home four awards including best artist, best video and best song and best US act. Other figures from the Caribbean diaspora who received awards were Cardi Be for Best New and Nicki Minaj for Best Look and Best Hip Hop. The ceremony took place in Bilbao, Spain. Variety reports:

Camila Cabello was the big winner Sunday at the MTV EMAs in Bilbao, Spain, scooping a quartet of awards, including Best Artist. Nicki Minaj also had a good night, winning a brace of awards, as she, Muse and Janet Jackson were among the stars performing at the show.

Cabello won the Best Song and Best Video accolades for “Havana” and best U.S./Worldwide act. Minaj landed two awards: Best Hip Hop and Best Look.

In a night that put female artists front and center, Minaj and Best U.K. and Ireland Act winners Little Mix sang “Women Like Me.” Global Icon Award winner Janet Jackson and host Hailee Steinfeld, also performed. In a nod to her upcoming film, “Bumblebee,” the latter performed soundtrack number “Back to Life” from inside a yellow “car” composed of more than 20 people bending and twisting their bodies into the form of a vehicle.

Lending proceedings some local flavor, modern Flamenco-inspired Spanish artist Rosalía came on stage in a gigantic truck and sang “Malamente.”

Shawn Mendes, a double award-winner last year, landed the Best Live award. Dua Lipa won Best Pop. Panic! At the Disco won Best Alternative, and performed “High Hopes.” Best Electronic winners Marshmello closed the show amid giant inflatable Marshmello heads.
