Ylvis at this year's MTV EMAsYlvis believe Miley Cyrus will "kill" her career if she stops the controversial on-stage stunts.

The Norwegian popstars - who shot to international fame after their music video "The Fox" achieved over 200 million views on YouTube - put 20-year-old Miley's success down to her attention-seeking antics. The comedians turned pop duo - made up of brothers, Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker - performed alongside the "Wrecking Ball" singer at this year's EMA's where she lit a suspicious looking cigarette on stage during her acceptance speech.

"Poor girl she has to. Every other journalist on the red carpet asked us, 'What do you think she's going to do this year to provoke?' I mean if she doesn't do anything it's going to kill her. It will probably kill her anyway," Vergard joked, speaking exclusively to BANG showbiz about the singer's recent performances.

With her controversial award show performances and shocking fashions, it's easy to forget that Miley Cyrus can actually sing.

The former Disney star covered Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" for BBC Radio 1, putting a slight country pop spin to the tune. Although Cyrus sounds great on the track, it would've been nice to hear her stray a little farther from Del Rey's original version of the song. Hopefully Del Rey inspires her new work - it's definitely more interesting to hear her belting out notes like this compared to her current material!

Miley CyrusEminem was among the big winners at the MTV Europe Music Awards last night, while Miley Cyrus caused controversy yet again.

The 41-year-old rapper won the Best Hip Hop and Global Icon prizes at the ceremony at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam - making him the artist with the most EMAs ever - and he celebrated his victory with a surprise performance of "Bezerk" before a scintillating rendition of "Rap God."

Miley ensured she remained in the spotlight by sparking up what appeared to be a joint on-stage and then smoking it with Will Ferrell, who was at the awards as his Anchorman alter-ego Ron Burgundy, before accepting her Best Video prize for "Wrecking Ball." The blonde star told the crowd, "I couldn't fit this award in my bag but I did find this..."

One Direction also won two accolades, Best Pop and Best UK & Ireland Act, and the band's 19-year-old hunk Harry Styles was named Best Look - beating the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and Rita Ora to the gong - however none of the boy band were at the ceremony to pick up their prizes.

Miley Cyrus at this year's MTV VMAsMiley Cyrus promises to keep foam fingers out of her MTV European Music Awards performance.

The "Wrecking Ball" singer caused controversy earlier this year when she twerked against Robin Thicke and made suggestive motions with a foam finger - but she has ruled out a repeat when she takes to the stage tomorrow night in Amsterdam.

"God, I don't know [what people will think]. If I only knew. But I can't think of any kind of prop that I would use [to] disrespect and offend. So I think I'm good about that. No Foam Finger Association is going to call me. I made custom [alien costumes], I made my own. No one owns aliens," she told MTV.

The racy star's performance on the night will have a focus on science fiction and outer space because of her love of extraterrestrial beings: "I've had this vision for a while. I've wanted to somehow involve something around aliens - because I really love aliens. Obviously, I really loved teddy bears so I built a whole show around teddy bears ... And I also like aliens, so I built the show around aliens. And when I knew that [ex-LMFAO musician] RedFoo was going to be there, I just felt he was the perfect person to get involved in what I'm all about, which is just having fun on the show, and not doing anything too serious."

Bruno Mars, Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran

For inspiration, Ellie Goulding looks to her pal Bruno Mars.

The "Starry Eyed" hitmaker has toured the US supporting the singer and says his live show has made her "up her game" and improve her own stage set to be more suitable for a bigger audience: "Bruno's show is phenomenal. It's the most incredible live show I've seen - that and Bjork, and it made me want to up my game. I read an article the other day that said I'd become Americanized, that I'd come from this shy English rose girl playing a guitar to being this big pop star... But you do adapt a bit to those bigger crowds and playing arenas. You can't just go out there and just say, 'Hiii.' You really do have to go out there and command."

The "Lose Yourself" hitmaker - who is also rumored to be performing - follows in the footsteps of music legends including Bon Jovi, Queen and Whitney Houston. "A lot of thought goes into who could possibly be appropriate. This man, has sold over 80 million records. I think everyone agrees, Eminem is one of the most creative and unique artists of our time," said Bruce Gilmer from MTV.

Acts already confirmed to take to the stage include Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry and Kings of Leon.

Meanwhile, this year's EMAs host Red Foo from LMFAO has been getting to know host city Amsterdam ahead of tomorrow's show. "Amsterdam is incredible, and the women are incredible here becuase they all ride bikes and they are fit and it is lovely, and the bikes are serious here. You see ones with, like three baby seats on them. And then coffeeshops! I saw Afrojack in one last night and we had some, y'know, coffee," he said.

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift feels "honored" to have been asked to perform for Prince William and Duchess Catherine next month.

The superstar is one of several acts - along with Bon Jovi, James Blunt and Eliza Doolittle - set to play at the royal couple's Winter Whites Gala in London's Royal Albert Hall on December 8, in aid of homeless charity Centerpoint, and she is thrilled to have been asked.

"I'm really excited, I'm going to be playing the Winter Whites Gala, I'm really stoked, it's the first royal engagement I've done and I feel very honored," she said in an interview.

And the "I Knew You Were Trouble" hitmaker is already thinking about what to say and do if she gets the opportunity to meet the royal couple at the event, but she isn't getting her hopes up: "I've been asking about that [etiquette], I think I'm safe if I just shake hands and be polite. I think it's presumptuous to assume I'll meet them, so first I'm going to be polite enough to not assume I'll meet them."

Lady GagaMonsters, mark your calendars for 2015: Lady Gaga will be singing in space!

The "Applause" hitmaker will embark on a space mission with Virgin Galactic flights and is reportedly planning to have vocal training to ensure she can still hit the correct notes in a gravity-free environment. "She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere," a source said.

Gaga is set to make history by becoming the first celebrity to perform in space. "[This will be] like nothing the world has seen before," the source added.

The 27-year-old star will perform on the third day of the Zero G Colony festival which takes place at Spaceport America in New Mexico approximately six months after the first Virgin Galactic commercial flight, and has taken the necessary precautions to ensure she is protected against the worst possible outcome.
