Camila comes out on top at MTV Europe Music Awards

Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello was the top winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday night, with "Best Song," "Best Artist," "Best Video" and "Best US Act" in a show that featured a stellar performance from Janet Jackson.

Cabello, 21, who already led the pack at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, urged her fans in the US to vote in the 2018 midterm elections as she walked the red carpet in the northern Spanish city of Bilbao.The singer, who rose to fame as a member of the girl group "Fifth Harmony," formed on the US edition of the X-Factor, said she relished being seen as a role model.

"I feel like the message for me has always been just like do what makes you happy, even if it's scary, it's worth it to take the risk because your happiness is your responsibility," Cabello said. "That's always been my message and I talk about it a lot but I feel like it's a good message. And yes, very important, go vote!" she said.

Jackson, who received a "Global Icon" award, sang hits of her 40-year career over four stages and surrounded by African drummers, flame torches, fire breathers and more than 20 dancers. The show took place at Bilbao's exhibition center and was hosted by Hailee Steinfeld, who performed "Back to Life," a song that will feature on the soundtrack of her forthcoming film "Bumblebee."
