Following last night’s star-studded 2016 MTV EMAs in Rotterdam, we wanted to share a round-up of the best and most exciting celebrity photos and videos shared on Instagram.

Through the night, Instagram gave fans an access-all-areas glimpse into all the action – from performers getting ready in the dressing room, to celebrities revealing moments backstage, to nominees posing on the red carpet and award winners celebrating throughout the night.

Highlights of the night included Shawn Mendes scooping Best Male and celebrating on Instagram, host Bebe Rexha messing about backstage and Green Day making a comeback and sharing their red-carpet look.

Celebrities also took to Instagram Stories throughout the evening, documenting the event for fans across the world to see. From Tinie Tempah cracking open some bubbly en route to the awards, to supermodel Jourdan Dunn capturing her entire getting ready process before hitting the red carpet, to AfroJack and DNCE revealing exciting moments backstage and at the afterparty.

Here’s a selection of the best Instagram Stories, photos and videos below.
