The show opened with a dazzling performance from Mariah Carey who received the Icon Award from the Producer and Artist Jermaine Dupruy.

Belgian Superstar Stromae received 2 Awards for Best Benelux Artist and best-selling European Singer having sold nearly 3 million Albums! Stromae gave a very passionate redering of “Formidable”.

The World Music Awards will be aired primetime in America on NBC Network and 4 Music will air it in the UK. The show will be syndicated in 180 other networks reaching a billion viewers.
Best female as voted on by fans Miley Cyrus. No surprise there. It is an utter shame then that Miley FAILED to attend the media photocall with her awards. I fail to see how talent refuse at times to do press after an awards ceremony covered by the press! Mariah Carey was another no show after inviting us all -media- to attend the launch of her new single ‘Me. I am.
Mariah’ -yes, really that’s the name of it. Having kept us waiting for almost 2 hours, AND re-arranging the press call time, delaying the whole AWARDS, she refused to attend. Yep, she cancelled the whole thing without giving reasons. The air turned blue, in Mariah’s appraisal of her cancellation. Her own TV crew, and security were shaking their heads. They were there longer than us. You are NOT allowed to ask any questions to her either. She has talent lets face it, but being arrogant and thoroughly unprofessional in her dealings with the media -and many other people rumour has it- doesn’t win her new fans or respect by professionals. She WAS in the building, and in a good mood at the awards when I saw her during the awards. So why cancel her OWN single launch? Is it THAT bad? Time will tell.
