Eminem just won Best Hip-Hop Act at the MTV EMAs
Eminem has just won Best Hip-Hop Act at the MTV EMAs, even though he hasn't actually put out a new record for four years.
The rapper's last album was 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, the follow-up to 2000's super-smash The Marshall Mathers LP.
He's been quiet for a while, with only his hard-hitting Donald Trump freestyle making significant waves late.
In fact, he only just released his comeback single 'Walk on Water' two days before last night's ceremony.
The recorded version the track features Beyoncé and is produced by Rick Rubin and Skylar Grey.
Em had opened the MTV EMAs at The SSE Arena in Wembley with an orchestra-backed version the song, with Skylar as a special guest.
He kicked f the performance from the Stanley Mitchell Revival Pub – giving a nod to his massive hit 'Stan' – before walking out onto the Wembley stage.
Eminem winning the gong later in the evening despite his absence from the shelves in recent years certainly raised some eyebrows, with the man himself expressing surprise.
"I'm not really sure how I got this 'cos I haven't had an album out for a few years," he said in a moment rare humility.
He thanked his fans and MTV, and also gave a shoutout to hip-hop legends Chuck D Public Enemy and B-Real Cypress Hill for all the inspiration.
Fans seemed as surprised as the man himself about his shock win:
