She’s currently lapping up crazy amounts of love for her smash hit second album ‘21’– and now Adele’s
wild popularity has officially been set in stone thanks to the ‘2011 MTV EMA.’

Yep, while there’s still a few weeks to go until the star-studded madness kicks-off in Belfast, the ‘Someone Like You’ star is celebrating early after being named the ‘Best UK & Ireland Act.’

Voted for by her loyal fans, the songbird, who beat the likes of Coldplay, Florence and the Machine, Kasabian
and Jessie J
to nab the honour, will now compete against 22 fellow winners from across Europe for the chance to represent the continent in the ‘2011 MTV EMA World Wide Act’ category.

from Sweden, Russian Red
from Spain and Madá
from Italy, as fans from across Europe vote for their favourite European act right here!

The uber lucky artist representing Europe at the ‘2011 MTV EMA’ will be announced the week of October 24,
along with nominees from Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa/India/Middle East.

The five regional nominees will then go head-to-head for votes for the ‘2011 MTV EMA Worldwide Act’ distinction, and the winner will be named live at the ‘2011 MTV EMA’ bash!
