The MTV Europe Music Awards took place on Sunday evening at the SSE Arena in London, England and one of the biggest highlights came when we were surprised by the Rap God himself, Eminem.
Although many people were aware of the fact that he was on the roster, almost nobody was expecting him to perform a live rendition of his new song, “Walk on Water” but he stole the show in a massive way:
His performance was emotional and raw, authentic and inspired; in short, a combination of everything we have come to know and love about Marshall Mathers over the years. Slim Shady also walked away with one of the night’s biggest awards as he edged the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Drake to walk away with the “Best Rap” award. The humble rapper from Detroit admitted that he didn’t know what he had done to win the award but he thanked his loyal fans for their support.
Perhaps the most exciting moment of his night at the EMAs came when he revealed that although he hadn’t released an album in a while, the new one was coming out soon. If you grew up listening to Eminem, it was impossible not to feel a little emotional after seeing him this Sunday. He better release that album soon...
