We Announced More 2016 MTV EMA Performers
It’s been a massive week for MTV EMA news as we announced many more performers and presenters ahead of next week’s big event in Rotterdam.
First we announced that the world’s no. 1 DJ (according to DJ Mag) is coming to the 2016 MTV EMA for a special live performance. Yes, that’s right, the one and only Martin Garrix will be dropping beats all over the EMA stage and we’re beyond excited. As well as this, we've got Afrojack coming to join the party as well!
We also announced that Kings Of Leon will be doing not one, but two performances over the course of the 2016 MTV EMA weekend. First the band are headlining the EMA World Stage on Saturday 5th November, followed by their performance at the big show on Sunday 6th November. You don’t wanna miss it.

Lady Gaga Continues To Takeover The World With ‘Joanne’ Including Her Hilarious Carpool Karaoke
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks, a little thing called ‘Lady Gaga’s new album’ has been very much happening all around the world.
Not only did she join James Corden in his ride to work for Carpool Karaoke (which is THE BEST ONE YET), she actually high-jacked his show and joined the resident band for the night. AMAZING, right?
She’s also been commenting on those pesky Glastonbury rumours, but all the while keeping pretty tight-lipped on the whole thing, saying: “Glaaaastonbury! I don’t have permission to say anything about that.”
