The winners have been chosen, the pelvises have been thrust, and all of the performers have left the stage; it looks like the 2014 MTV EMA has officially come to a close. But thanks to The Internet™, we can relive that wonderful Scottish night forever and ever and ever and ever through the magic of GIFs.

Nick Jonas’ one-man wet T-shirt contest? Charli XCX’s wanton rule-breaking? Ariana Grande’s Glinda the Good Witch moment? Nicki Minaj’s EVERYTHING? It’s all here — GO NUTS.
