Canadian band Hedley, who helm from British Columbia, however, took the most prizes, winning three for “Anything”, including Favourite Video of the Year, and Video of the Year (which kind of mean the same thing don’t they?).

Ariana Grande later closed the show, which also featured performances from Ed Sheeran, Sam Roberts Band, and Magic!
