Renowned supermodel, Heidi Klum will be hosting the 19th Annual “2012 MTV EMA” to take place in Frankfurt’s historic Festhalle, Germany on the 11th of November. Music stars have been nominated for the awards: Rihanna and Taylor swift have six and five nomination places respectively. Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Kanye West and other rich talents also make the list but with lesser nomination counts.
Some African music acts have also put in to be in the Worldwide Act category namely D’banj, Wizkid, Sarkodie, Camp Mulla, and Mi Casa but it’s not going to be all rosy as they will be competing with other musicians from India and the Middle East to get in (starting October 15) and then the nominees for the Final Worldwide Act category will be announced from each region – spanning Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa/India/Middle East – the week of 30th October where the winner will be named at the show in Frankfurt. EMA performers and presenters will also be announced by MTV much later.
Currently the host of Project Runway, the overly excited Heidi Klum seems prepared to bring on her best at the event and we expect nothing less from the multifaceted star. The ceremony will be broadcast on these channels: MTV channels around the world including MTV (DStv Channel 130) on Sunday 11 November at 22:00 CAT and on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) on Monday 12 November at 21:00 CAT.
