Liam Gallagher closed the MTV European Music Awards with 'Wonderwall'. The Oasis star was honoured with the Rock Icon award at the annual music ceremony, where he joked about the language barrier in his performance. Changing the end of the phrase, he sang: "And all the roads we have to walk are winding / And all the lights that lead us there are blinding / There are many things that I / Would like to say to you but I don't speak Spanish." Earlier in the night, Liam congratulated MTV for "recognising his brilliance" as he collected the first ever Rock Icon award at the MTV EMAs. He said: "Thank you man. I won't keep you too long but I want to congratulate Seville for having a lovely city. I want to congratulate MTV for recognising my brilliance. Thanks for the award. I wear it well."
