Doja Cat has given her smash hit ‘Say So’ a metal revamp at this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards.

The performance, which aired overnight on November 8, starts with the pop star crawling out of a TV screen, in vein of 2002 horror film The Ring. She then proceeds to snarl the typically bubble gum lyrics, transforming the track into a blazing rock anthem. Watch the performance below.

Doja Cat was nominated for two awards at this years MTV EMAs: Best New and Best Push, taking out the former.

Doja Cat has taken the commercial scene by storm in 2020, going from viral ‘Moooo’ star to a TikTok sensation, and one of this year’s most stand out artists.

Demonstrating her diverse vocal and stylistic talent Doja Cat is far from a one hit wonder.

BTS walked away with four Moonman trophies for Best Group, Best Pop, Best K-pop and Best Choreography for ‘On’. The Korean group also gave the debut live performance of their new single ‘Dynamite’.

Video Of The Year went to The Weeknd for ‘Blinding Lights’, who also won Best R&B for the same track. The star used both of his acceptance speeches to call for justice for Jacob Blake and Breonna Taylor.

The ceremony, which was originally scheduled to take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center but was moved to various outdoor locations due to the coronavirus pandemic, was hosted by Keke Palmer. The presenter opened the show by paying tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who died on Friday (August 28).

Whilst not a typical VMA ceremony it’s great to celebrate music in the new socially distanced 2020 style. Congratulations to all winners and nominees from this year’s MTV VMAs.
