Get ready to party like a rock star because MTV is hosting the 2008 European Music Awards on Thursday, November 6 at the Echo Centre in Liverpool, England and everyone who wants to honour the biggest and loudest names in the industry are invited to attend.
Bryan Gray, Chairman of Liverpool Culture Company, said: “The MTV European Music Awards in Liverpool is a perfect match – it’s pop music coming home.”
From flashing camera lights to the biggest artists in rock and pop music today, MTV is going all out for this year’s award show and taking the word “glamorous” to a whole new level.
The show will be hosted by the twenty-three year old sizzling, hot female star, Katy Perry, who is noted throughout the world for her song “I Kissed a Girl.”
MTV Producers announced earlier this month that Liverpool is going to explode with outstanding, live performances from Beyonce Knowles, who is set to release a new album in late November, Pink, The Killers, Duffy, and plenty more.
Don’t be fouled though, the fun won’t stop after these performances end, but continue on as MTV hands out some of the most impressive music awards of the year. A few of these awards include: Best New Act, Album of the Year, Video Act, Most Addictive Track, and Headliner just to name a few.
Best of all, these awards are presented to performers based on the highest number of votes from fans and viewers. You get to decide who wins and can vote online at www.ema.mtv.co.uk.
Other big names that will be present at this years award show include: Leona Lewis, Chris Brown, and Britney Spears, who racked up three awards for her song “Piece of Me” in the USA during the Video Music Awards and just released a new single titled “Womanizer” that has toped the charts across the globe.
The award show will be broadcast around the world on MTV, plus online, mobile, and thousands of radio platforms.
According to the Northwest Regional Development Agency, “This will be the third time that the UK has hosted the Awards.” Previously the event has been held in London (1996) and Edinburgh (2003).
“It is fantastic to be back in the UK and it is only natural that Liverpool should host the fifteenth annual Europe Music Awards. Not only is it the European Capital of Culture next year but the influence of its rich music heritage is still felt today,” stated Richard Godfrey, Senior Vice President Content & Music, MTV Networks International and Executive Producer.
It’s a red carpet event that you don’t want to miss and one of the most high-profile events of the year. See you there!
