Justin Bieber and David Guetta have been announced as the latest performers to take the stage at the MTV EMA, joining previously announced performances by Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars , Coldplay, LMFAO and the Red Hot Chili Peppers .
“It’s really exciting to be a part of the MTV EMA this year. Can’t wait to get to Belfast!!” Bieber said in a statement. The singer, who just released his first-ever holiday album, Under the Mistletoe , this week, is up for three awards at the show.
It seems that world-renowned DJ and producer Guetta is equally amped up about the gig, saying, “Performing at the 2011 MTV EMA is a big deal for any artist, but for a DJ, it’s a first. I’ll be joined by some of my special guest collaborators. I’m excited and honored — it’s going to be a crazy show!”
The show will be hosted by Bieber’s girlfriend, Selena Gomez , who recently displayed her gangsta side in a promo for the big show. Former host Katy Perry, Evanescence’s lead singer Amy Lee, “Jersey Shore” stars JWoww and Snooki, actress Hayden Panettiere, and supermodel Bar Refaeli have all been tapped to appear at the show.
