About the show

Sunday, November 12, 2017

The 24th annual MTV EMA will take over London's epic SSE Arena, Wembley on November 12, 2017 for an evening of awards and world-class performances from some of the biggest music acts on the planet. We're excited to announce that Pop Superstar Rita Ora will be our host and will also be performing during the show. After collecting eight nominations over the years, Rita will return to the EMA stage in full force! The EMA are about the fans just as much as they are about their favorite artists. Fans determine the night's winners by voting for their favorite artists in the weeks leading up to the show. From Brazil to Seoul, fans worldwide can follow along and even take part in the EMA festivities via social media, livestreams, on the EMA website, the EMA app and by tuning in to MTV.
