Accompanied by his band, a large string section and several back-up singer, Liam Gallagher took the opportunity to revisit Oasis’ hit ‘Wonderwall’ alongside his recent solo track ‘Once’.
During the chorus the musician referenced the awards’ location by changing the lyrics to, “There are many things I’d like to say to you, but I don’t speak Spanish.”
Gallagher scored the first ever Rock Icon Award during the MTV EMAs as well. As Rolling Stone reports, in his terse acceptance speech he said, “I won’t keep you too long, but I want to congratulate Seville for having a lovely city. I want to congratulate MTV for recognizing my brilliance. Thanks for the award. I wear it well.”
