The 2017 MTV EMAs Are Heading To London!
OMG OMG OMG OMG
It's official. The 2017 MTV EMAs are heading to London and it's going to rock!
The 24th annual mega awards show will take over our capital city’s epic SSE Arena, Wembley on 12th November 2017 for an evening of world-class performances from some of the biggest acts on the planet.
Laura Whitmore revealed the news earlier with the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, Tinie Tempah and RAY BLK who performed an incredible, acoustic version of her track 'My Hood' (get it?!).
Reaffirming that London is still well and truly open, Khan commented: "After two decades away, the MTV EMAs are returning to electrify the greatest city in the world once again. It promises to be an absolutely incredible evening, featuring some of the globe's top artists and watched by millions. London is the natural city to host one of the greatest musical shows on earth – with our exceptional musical history, wealth of creative talent and outstanding venues – we're the entertainment capital of the world. Whether you're a musical superstar, Londoner or visitor to the city – London is Open to entertain you!”
First held in London in 1996, when Robbie Williams hosted and Oasis won Best Song for 'Wonderwall', this will be the sixth time that the UK has hosted the awards show with previous host cities including Edinburgh (2003), Liverpool (2008), Belfast (2011) and Glasgow (2014).
Last year's epic event was held in Rotterdam, hosted by Bebe Rexha and featured performances from The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Green Day, Kings Of Leon, Shawn Mendes, Zara Larsson and more.
Roll on November! Just 271 days to go…
