After being part of the most talked-about performance of the year at the 2013 Video Music Awards, how does Robin Thicke plan to top himself at the MTV EMA Awards? It’s simple: by doing something completely different.
“We are just planning it right now. I’m sure it will be very safe and inoffensive,” Thicke laughed recently at the GQ Gentlemen’s Ball, referring to his unforgettable performance with Miley Cyrus at the VMAs.
“No, no, definitely no, definitely not,” Thicke said when asked on the British comedy show Alan Carr’s “Chatty Man” if he would be performing with Miley.
But that doesn’t mean the R&B singer, who is up for four awards, including Best Video for “Blurred Lines” (he faces off against Cyrus, who is nominated for “Wrecking Ball,” in that category), can’t take the stage with another artist.
“It’s in the works,” Thicke said of a possible collaboration. “I don’t think I’d be able to give it away just yet.”
Thicke and Cyrus join a long list of artists set to perform, including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Kings of Leon, Icona Pop, Snoop Dogg, Afrojack, Imagine Dragons and the Killers. The show will also feature appearances from presenters Jared Leto, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Ellie Goulding and backstage host Ariana Grande.
Be sure to catch the 2013 MTV EMA on Sunday, November 10, beginning at 7 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
