The hit-making mastermind behind "Summer" will take the stage at the SSE Hydro arena in his native Scotland on Sunday, November 9, although the same cannot necessarily be said about his shirt given his past aversion to all manner of tees and button-ups.
But you should definitely hold onto your shirt, though, because Calvin isn't the only artist being added to the performance lineup. Breakout stars Charli XCX, Kiesza and Royal Blood are all going to perform at the 2014 EMA, too. You are now free to rip your shirts off and roam about in a fugue-like state of excitement.
The EMA will air on MTV channels worldwide, and the U.S. telecast will kick off live from Miami at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT with Nick Cannon and Molly Tarlov and a “Jealous” performance from Nick Jonas. Back in Glasgow, metal legend Ozzy Osbourne will be honored with the Global Icon Award. Previously announced performers include Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran. The "Anaconda" rapper will also serve as the host of the 2014 EMA.
In case you're not totally familiar with each of the four newly announced EMA performers, this quick primer will help get you up to speed.
He has released four albums and won two VMAs and a Grammy Award. Oh, and he gets all the girls.
Charli XCX, meanwhile, is putting the finishing touches on her upcoming second major-label LP, Sucker.
Although you probably know her best as the lady who sings the hook on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy."
GO DEEPER THOUGH. She's like the spiritual Rayanne Graff to your pop-listening Angela Chase.
Kiesza (pronounced "KAI-zah") is the only House-meets-New Jack Swing enthusiast who matters right now.
Watch the Canadian singer-songwriter's "Hideaway" video, and you'll understand.
As for Royal Blood, the British rock duo made the longlist of the BBC's coveted Sound of 2014.
Along with artists who've totally blown up like Sam Smith and FKA twigs, so NBD. Here's their newest video for "Ten Tonne Skeleton."
