An issue on behalf of women. They were the absolute protagonists (and winners) of the Mtv Ema 2018 of Bilbao. Four awards for the Cuban star Camila Cabello (including the most prestigious Best Artist), the Global Icon Award for Janet Jackson, the best pop one Dua Lipa and even the best Hip Hop one Nicky Minaj, an explosive female representative of a category with a strong predominance of men.
Was right Nicky Minaj, with his overwhelming strength, to inaugurate the night, first alone with Good shape, then with the British Little Mix, with whom he recently participated in the single Woman like me (title, manifestation of intention: independence and self-determination).
Leading the night, the singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld, who also performed on stage. Many stars among the presenters, from Ashlee Simpson – came along with her husband and 'colleague' Evan Ross, with whom he recently recorded the play I do – for the stars of narcos Michael Peña and Diego Luna, up – listen, listen – on rediviva Lindsay Lohan, that on stage we saw the prize delivered to the "box" Marhsmallow, with which he spoke without a reply.
"I dedicate this award to my fans because I know what it means to love and follow someone, I still remember when I attended the show at age 14 and I was the fan. That's why I have such a deep connection with my audience" , said a brilliant Cabello in red, removing the first of a large series of awards. And that his relationship with fans is so special was also evident on the show rug, which we live on our social networks (Twitter and Instagram Stories) and where she gave a really "incredible" moment.

Among the best performances of the night, Bebe Rexha and Halsey: the first, with I am a mess, escaping from a bathtub and running, surrounded and finally erected by a large group of dancers in armor; the second, with Without me, sung in a cage flooded with rain. The new lever of Spanish music Rosalia he animated the stage of the Bilbao Exhibition Center with his own pop "gypsy". The softer the Alessia Cara, that soon we can do a duet with our Eros Ramazzotti on the new album that will be released on November 23.

Among the (few) male performances, it is worth mentioning that "In flight" of the American pop duo Jack and Jack (a kind of Benji and Fede with stars and stripes), while Jason Derulo – accompanied by David Guetta and Nicki Minaj – performed in his controversial Bocelli resampling dance (goodbye rather than Time to say goodbyeThat is go away), confirming an extraordinary performance.

Disappointing, unfortunately, and very, the show of Janet Jackson (dramatically out of sync throughout the duration of the performance), which was however rescued at the end with a long speech by empowerment female. "I am with all of you, abused, threatened, humiliated women: you are my sisters," he said. "Let's make our voice for gender equality heard." And, at least judging by the show tonight, that voice was heard loud and clear.
