Watch Carly Rae Jepsen, Fun., and Rita Ora perform at the 2012 MTV EMA!
By now you may already know the first wave of 2012 MTV EMA performers: Taylor Swift, No Doubt, and Muse — but you know us — we like a lot of everything. That said, we have some more exciting news to share, guys: Carly Rae Jepsen, Fun., and Rita Ora will be performing too! (!!!!!) (Oh, um, that was just the sound of us TOTALLY LOSING OUR MINDS.) As if we needed another excuse to belt out “Call Me Maybe” in front of the TV. …Instead of just in the shower… Well, never mind.
Read up on the 2012 MTV EMA performers after the jump.
The timing couldn’t be better for Carly — she’s just released her latest full-length album, Kiss, and has been nominated for three 2012 MTV EMAs, including Best New, Best Song, and Best Push. Soul-pop songstress Rita Ora is likewise having THE BEST year — the MTV Push and Unplugged alum will soon kick off her MTV Presents: The Ora Tour, and we couldn’t be more pumped for indie rockers Fun. to shake things up onstage at their first-ever EMA performance (fun fact: All three acts are first-time EMA performers!).
Hosted by German supermodel, entrepreneur, and reality star Heidi Klum, this year’s awards will be held in Frankfurt, Germany’s historic Festhalle. As far as nominees go, Rihanna topped the list with six nods; Justin Bieber and Katy Perry each nabbed four EMA nominations; and M.I.A., Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Psy are all nominated for Best Video. You can even cast your vote in select EMA categories, including Best New, Best Live, and Biggest Fan by visiting mtvema.com or m.mtvema.com on your phone. Oh, and remember to keep an eye out for future performance announcements! Can you wait? Because we can’t. Not even a little bit.
The 19th annual MTV EMA will air live on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 9 p.m. CET from Frankfurt’s historic Festhalle on MTV channels around the world. If you’re in America, and you probably are, watch the show that night at 11 p.m. on MTV2.
