MTV EMAs: Wyclef To Host; Backstreet, U2, Moby To Play

Hip-hop impresario Wyclef Jean has been tapped to host next month’s 2000 MTV Europe Music Awards, an event that will also feature performances from the Backstreet Boys, U2, and Moby, among others.

Robbie Williams, Spice Girls, Ronan Keating, and Guano Apes will also take to the stage of the Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on November 16 for the MTV Europe Music Awards, while Eiffel 65, Kelis, Alice Cooper, The Cardigans, Anastacia, Aqua, Moloko, and Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson will serve as presenters.

Robbie Williams and British pop diva/DJ Sonique lead all nominees for the 2000 MTV EMAS, as both have been nominated for four awards each. Williams’ “Rock DJ” and Sonique’s “Feel So Good” will square off against each other in the category of Best Song.

Following Williams and Sonique is a logjam of several multi-nominated artists, as Britney Spears, Madonna, Eminem, Travis, Bon Jovi, and Spice Girl Mel C have all received three nominations apiece.
