Congatulations to Thirty Seconds To Mars, who have topped up their collection of trophies: at the 2017 MTV EMAs they have won an award in the nomination Best Alternative Act.

Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman dedicated the speech to their echelon of fans and the idea of racial equity:

“You have changed our lives”, Leto said. “This is for you, this is about you, and we stand here proudly on this stage tonight in celebration of you, so thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you.”

“We are Americans – a land of immigrants – and we just wanna say that we welcome you with open arms and with open hearts, and we love you. God bless you.”

The 24th annual MTV EMA took place at London’s epic SSE Arena, Wembley on November 12.
