11/8/18 Throwback Thursday: When Louis Tomlinson won the EMA for Best UK & Ireland Act in 2017

Today’s Throwback Thursday is when Louis Tomlinson won the Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards in November 2017. He beat out Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, and Stormzy to take home the win. After the win, Louis tweeted, "Ohhhhh shit ! Thanks so much for voting !! You guys are fucking amazing. Yet again put a massive smile on my face. Love you all!” 

He posted a video to thank fans saying, “Hi, guys. Sorry I couldn’t be there today for the EMAs, but I just wanted to send an absolutely massive thank you to every single one of your guys who voted for me to win the Best Act across the UK and Ireland. I’m honored. It’s unbelievable. It’s my first award on my own so it’s just a credit to you guys so thank you very much. Loads of love.”


It’s been a year since the EMAs and this video from Louis, but he’s now preparing to release a single next month with his debut album hopefully soon after. Fans are just as excited now as they were last year for Louis’ solo album.
