The MTV Europe Music awards will take place in Frankfurt, Germany, on 11 November. The 2011 show, held in Belfast, attracted 23 million viewers from across the world. MTV will certainly be hoping the forthcoming event surpasses that number.
"We're thrilled to be returning to Frankfurt and once again presenting the MTV EMA in such a vibrant and dynamic city. The MTV EMA is without a doubt one of the biggest nights in music on the planet and showcases talent from the US to Europe to Asia to everywhere in between. This year's show in Frankfurt will definitely continue the EMA tradition of capturing the world's attention through unforgettable performances and jaw-dropping moments," Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) President and CEO Bob Bakish was quoted as saying by MusicWeek.
This will be the second time Germany hosts the awards... the first was in 2001.
Meanwhile, NME reports Bakish as saying the awards ceremony will be "one of the biggest nights in music on the planet" and "showcase talent from the US to Europe to Asia to everywhere in between".
Finally, British New Age and Pop artist Florence and the Machine is expected to release an MTV Unplugged Live album next month.
