The annual music awards event, MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) has finally released its full nomination list per-last week. The event that will be taking place at FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Spain, will be airing live on November 3, 2019. Some new faces will feature the show, and lead the nominations for this year, like Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X who each earned six category nominations on their first EMA. Pop singer Shawn Mendes who recently just having his first concert in Indonesia also nominated in six categories!

On the other side, Ariana Grande leads all nominees for this year’s MTV EMA, including Best Video, Best Song, Best Live and Best Pop, followed by three more nominations. The Latin-American singer J Balvin gathered a total of five nominations, while Taylor Swift and Lizzo earned four each. The megahit ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus entered three nominations including the Best Video and Best Song category.

The MTV EMA will be lead by our favorite girl on the block, Becky G. She quoted, ‘This is my first real job, I had to like, go win, prepare for an interview, it is such a big deal’. In addition, during her interview with MTV, she also stated that she’s currently preparing something ‘special’ for the show. Ugh, of course, we can’t wait for her surprise!
