Lady Gaga, BTS, Justin Bieber Lead 2020 MTV EMA Nominations

Lady Gaga has garnered seven nominations for the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs), followed by BTS and Justin Bieber, each of whom received five nods. The global music awards show also added new categories best Latin, video for good and best virtual live.

Gaga’s nominations include best artist, best pop and best video for her collaboration with Ariana Grande on “Rain On Me,” which also secured nominations for best song and best collaboration. (Gaga won five VMAs on the U.S. edition, which aired Aug. 30). BTS and Bieber’s nods include biggest fans and best pop, which is sure to provide a contentious outcome as Army and Beliebers go head to head.

The EMAs will also bring back local honors, with nominations that include Lady Gaga, Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B for best U.S. act; Justin Bieber and The Weeknd for best Canadian act and Dua Lipa for best U.K. and Ireland act, among others.

DaBaby, Doja Cat and YUNGBLUD, among others, will vie for Best New Artist, while Chloe x Halle, BLACKPINK and Little Mix will be among those competing for Best Group.

The two-hour-long show, which is in its 27th year, will air globally on MTV internationally Nov. 8. Fans can cast their votes until Nov. 2.

Details on performers and presenters will be announced soon.
