The 2017 EMA (Europe Music Awards) Nominees are upon us! The show is scheduled to be held on Sunday, November 12th at The SSE Arena in Wembley, London.  Rita Ora is set to host the event and is also a nominee in the Best Look category.  She will also be performing her new single in addition to hosting the awards ceremony.  Speaking about Ora, Bruce Gillmer, the head of music and music talent at Viacom’s Global Entertainment Group, said, “Rita is a multi-talented star who’s been an MTV core artist for over half of a decade. She’s the perfect hometown hero to lead the 2017 MTV EMAs.”

Taylor Swift leads the nominations with six total, followed by Shawn Mendes with five.  Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar both have four; each of these artists are nominated for the Best Artist category.  MTV will also no longer have separate categories for Best Male and Best Female artists, choosing to do away with gender specific categories altogether.

You can vote for each category here and learn even more about the event on the official MTV EMA website. Check out the full list of nominees below.  (More nominees may be revealed after press time, so keep your eyes locked on the EMAs website!)
