Get ready! The MTV EMA are BACK, and voting is OPEN!
Doesn't it seem like just yesterday that we were gawking over Miley Cyrus twerking it out (and then some) on stage at the 2013 VMAs? (Maybe that's just us. #ShortTermMemoryLoss.) Well, you know what we say 'round here: On to the next! Slash on to the European! (That sounded weird.) That's right, the MTV EMA are BACK!
Oh wait, you need an EMA refresher? Happy to help! The MTV EMA is a worldwide celebration of the year's most excellent artists, bringing together music fans on a global scale. And guess what else? This year the show will be held from Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome on Nov. 10, and the nominees are IN. Ready to find out who they are? And how you can vote for your favorites? Read on!
Find out who the MTV EMA nominees are, and cast your EMA vote after the jump!
For the EMA 2013, it's gonna be a serious battle of the pop stars. Justin Timberlake and Macklemore lead the EMA pack this year with five noms apiece, while Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, and Taylor Swift will battle it out for the Best Pop award. Also: Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez will join the aforementioned ladies in the "Best Female" category!
On the Best Video side, nominees include Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors," Lady Gaga's "Applause," Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," and Thirty Seconds To Mars' epic "short film" for "Up In The Air." And who's up for Best New? Oh, just a few small-time bands called Icona Pop, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and Imagine Dragons, among others. Are we psyched yet? Dunno about you, but I'm
feeling 22 eating schnitzel in bed.
Oh, but we're not done yet! Justin Bieber, One Direction, Lady Gaga, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and Tokio Hotel will all battle it in the the Biggest Fan category! (Whoa, EMA déjà vu! Directioners and Beliebers went up against each other for "Biggest Fan" LAST year!)
