We love Eminem. We love him a lot.
But we were kind of confused as well when he beat out Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and more Sunday night (November 12) for an MTV Europe Music Award: Best Hip Hop Artist.
The emcee got onstage and immediately started his acceptance speech by saying, ""I'm not really sure how I got this 'cause I haven't had an album out in a few years..." Eminem's latest project was 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
So... why did he win?
We may never know.
Check out Em's acceptance speech below:
Eminem also performed his brand new single "Walk on Water" with producer Skylar Grey instead of Beyonce. It was still a pretty great performance, though.
