The 2012 MTV EMA lineup just keeps growing. On Tuesday (October 9), it was announced that performers No Doubt, Taylor Swift and Muse will have company when the show goes live on November 11. Nominees Carly Rae Jepsen, Fun. and Rita Ora are now among the night’s big performers.
“This will be my first time at the MTV EMA, and I am beyond thrilled — feeling like a lucky duck for the nominations and the chance to perform,” the “Call Me Maybe” singer said about her debut at next month’s awards show. “Now the only concern is what to wear?! Let the party begin, Frankfurt.”
Rockers Fun. added, “It’s so incredible that we’ll be playing at the MTV EMA, when not that long ago not many people knew who we were in Europe! It just feels like that dream most people don’t get to experience.”
All of the scheduled performers will take the stage at the famed Festhalle in Frankfurt, Germany. Roc Nation’s Rita Ora, who kicked off her MTV-hosted tour on Monday, also gushed about next month’s event. “I’m so excited to be part of the 2012 MTV EMA! And to be nominated is incredible — let’s have some fun this year!”
Not enough party for you? Well, EMA host Heidi Klum will be getting an assist from MTV2’s “Guy Code” stars Lil Duval and Andrew Schulz, who serve as the authorities on all things dude on the hit series.
The twosome have been enlisted to serve as special emcees for the U.S. telecast of the show, kicking off November 11 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2. They’ll also be on hand to announce the Stateside-only EMA winner in the U.S. Artist About to Go Global category. (Mac Miller, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Tyga, MGK and Big Sean are all in the running for the prize.) Voting for the MTV2 EMA award is under way and will run right until Friday November 9 at 5:59 p .m. ET.
For those keeping score, Rihanna rules the EMA nominations with six; she’s followed closely behind by Swift who’s snagged five nods. Justin Bieber and Katy Perry are up each up with four nominations. The 2012 MTV EMA will air in the U.S. on Sunday, November 11, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2. Additional performers and presenters will be announced at a later date.
