The MTV Europe Music Awards were established by MTV Europe in 1994 and the event is hosted by a different city each year. The original aim of the MTV Europe Music Video Awards was to celebrate the most popular music videos in Europe. This was seen as the European alternative to the American MTV Video Music Awards. This was later changed to the MTV Europe Music Awards in which MTV viewers have the majority vote (on the official MTV EMA website) as to who is deserving of the top honors in ten of the twelve categories, including New Sounds of Europe, Ultimate Urban, Inter Act, Headliner and Most Addictive Track.
Previous MTV Europe Music Award winners include Eminem, Justin Timberlake (who hosted the 2006 awards), The Prodigy, Backstreet Boys, Madonna, Robbie Williams, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Muse, Alicia Keys, Linkin Park, Kane, Gorillaz and Oasis, giving fans a good idea of the level of talent that is showcased and honored at this esteemed event.
Hip-hop superstar, Snoop Dogg, has been invited to host Europe’s biggest and most spectacular music event this year. He has already made it clear that he intends taking the 2007 MTV Europe Music Awards to a whole new level, assuring viewers that they are in for an evening to remember. Acts that are confirmed to perform on the night include Foo Fighters and the new pop sensation Mika.
With the vast collective talent of the musicians and artists that have been nominated for awards, there is every reason to believe that the 14th annual MTV Europe Music Awards in Munich is going to be an extremely successful event. Don’t miss it!
