Rihanna misses out on an MTV EMA despite six nominations

She might be poised to release brand new album Unapologetic, but Rihanna was pipped to the post at MTV's European Music Awards last night and despite nominations in six categories, she was left empty handed at the end of the night.

Rihanna loses out at the 2012 MTV European Music Awards EMAs despie 6 category nominations

While Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber cleaned up at the award ceremony in Frankfurt, RiRi was left with no new silverware to put on her mantelpiece.

Despite a bag load of European number one's, Rihanna didn't have too much luck last year either and was only nominated for one award.

But despite all that it was a night for newcomers and as well as One Direction getting a brand new trophy to add to their collection, Lana Del Rey and Korean pop sensation Psy also made their debut as EMA award winners.

She might not have been at the ceremony, but what do you think about all this - think it's fair that RiRi missed out?

Comments please.
