Yes, after Miley's Smilers carried her to the Best U.S. Act nomination — and Justin's Beliebers helped him win Best Canadian Act — the two friends (and their fanbases) will now battle it out to determine who will rep the North American region in the EMA's Worldwide Act category.
Voting is now underway to decide a winner ... with polls closing on October 31. Either Miley or Bieber will move on to face other regional nominees — from areas like Africa/India/Middle East, Japan/Korea, and Latin America, to name just a few — with 10 finalists being named on November 1.
The winner of Worldwide Act will be revealed at the 2013 MTV EMA, set to take place on Sunday, November 10, from the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. The show will be broadcast here in the U.S. that same day at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the field of EMA nominees with five nods each, followed Lady Gaga, Bieber, Cyrus and Thicke, with four apiece. Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Thirty Seconds to Mars and One Direction are also in the running for multiple awards.
Fans in the U.S. (and the rest of the world) can vote now in EMA categories like Best Song, Best Pop and Biggest Fans by visiting MTVEMA.com online, or M.MTVEMA.com on their mobile phones. Voting will remain open until 11:50 p.m. CET on Friday, November 8.
