MTV today announced the nominees for the '2011 MTV EMA' with Lady Gaga leading the pack with six nods, and Katy Perry and Bruno Mars following closely behind with four nominations.
British songstress Adele, who stands as the top-selling artist of the year, has been nominated for three awards, with Justin Bieber and Thirty Seconds To Mars also up for three. The 18th annual MTV EMA will broadcast live on Sunday, 6th November at 9PM GMT from Belfast’s Odyssey Arena on MTV channels around the world.
Two of the reigning queens of pop will go head to head at this year’s EMA in four of the same categories, as Lady Gaga and Katy Perry compete for Best Live, Best Pop and Best Female, as well as Best Song, with Perry nominated for “Firework” and Gaga for “Born This Way”. Gaga is also nominated for Best Video for “Born This Way” and Biggest Fans. Multi-talented singer/songwriter Bruno Mars is up for four awards, including Best New, Best Male, Best Push and Best Song for “Grenade.” Adele has been nominated for Best Female, as well as Best Song and Best Video for “Rolling In The Deep”, and Justin Bieber will compete for Best Pop, Best Male and Biggest Fans. Thirty Seconds To Mars is up for Best Alternative, Best World Stage and Biggest Fans.
As always, the MTV EMA – MTV’s international celebration of the year’s best in music – features nominees from across genres, recognizing today’s hottest acts and global superstars. Foo Fighters, Snoop Dogg, My Chemical Romance, Jennifer Lopez, LMFAO, Jessie J, Beyoncé, Coldplay, Eminem, Arcade Fire, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Far East Movement, Kanye West, Linkin Park, Wiz Khalifa and Kings of Leon are each up for two EMA nominations.
New to the '2011 MTV EMA' is the Biggest Fans award, which will go to the most passionate fan base for a particular artist.
Beginning Monday, 19th September, viewers can vote for their favourite EMA artists by visiting www.mtvema.com. The more fans engage with the EMA content featured on the site, the more their participation and points can boost the chances for their favourite artist to win.
Also new this year is the World Wide Act category, which celebrates diversity and the breadth of all the music that MTV has to offer by nominating incredible artists from all corners of the world. Fans will be able to vote for an artist/group from their respective territory in Europe starting Monday, September 19th, and then those local winners will vie for the European title the week of 17th October. The representative for Europe will be announced the week of 24th October along with the regional nominees from Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa/India/Middle East, and those five regional nominees will then battle for the “World Wide Act” distinction. The winner will be named at the show in Belfast.
