Taylor Swift was the big winner at Sunday night's MTV Europe Music Awards in Frankfurt, picking up three awards.

Wiping the floor with the competition, the 22-year-old singer won the prizes for Best Female Act, Best Live Act and Best Look, the Daily Mail reported.

Even though Kanye West was there to support girlfriend Kim Kardashian, he didn't invade the stage like he did when Swift won an MTV award in 2009.

Not only did the star win three awards but she also wowed the audience with her energetic circus-inspired performance, dressed as a ringmaster.

Swift was only matched in her success by teen pop sensation Justin Bieber who won Best Male Act, Best Pop Act and Best World Stage.

Brit band One Direction won awards for Best New Act and Biggest Fans.

South Korean pop sensation PSY won the award for Best Video, while Nicki Minaj won Best Hip Hop act.

Swift closed the show in true style with a show-stopping performance of her hit 'We Are Never Getting Back Together.'

Dressed as a circus ringmaster, the star danced under a shower of streamers and fireworks.

Taking to her Twitter account after the ceremony, she wrote: "Such an insane night!!! You guys won me 3 EMAs! Best female, best live act, best look. Can't even begin to thank you enough. I love you!!"
