The 2014 MTV EMA will air on MTV channels worldwide, and the U.S. telecast will kick off live from Miami's Klipsch Amphitheater at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT with co-hosts Nick Cannon, Molly Tarlov and Jake Miller, with performances by Nick Jonas, Fifth Harmony and Jake Miller.
Then, we'll hop across the pond to Scotland's SSE Hydro Arena, where Nicki Minaj will host the main show as well as perform. Other previously announced performers include Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Calvin Harris, Charli XCX, Kiesza, Royal Blood and Enrique Iglesias, and metal legend Ozzy Osbourne will be honored with the Global Icon Award.
In case you need reminding (and/or just lost the last of your baby teeth last week), U2 know how to put on a damn show. They've been making EMA headlines for decades. And here are just seven of U2's most iconic EMA moments.
1. What's up, U2? Taking home the EMA for Best Live Act in 2009, I see.
2. AND LO, LOOK AT THAT. They took home the same award 12 years earlier in 1997.
3. Oh yeah, and the Best Group EMA, too. That was in 1995 -- in case the styling didn't tip you off.
4. We haven't even gotten into U2's past performances yet. Remember when Bono entered the ring to punch out "Mofo" in 1997?
5. Or that mysteeeeeeeeerious sheet from their "Beautiful Day" performance in 2000?
Which dropped to reveal...
...U2! It was U2.
6. Or, how about when Jay Z joined Bono in Berlin to perform "Sunday Bloody Sunday" in 2009?
