Katy Perry To Host The EMAs!
Europe's biggest party of the year is drawing ever closer and by all accounts, it's set to be a doozy!
With some of the hottest acts of 2008, firm favourites and a few gasp-worthy surprises for good measure, the MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool next month won't disappoint.
She held up her sapphic lady love for all to see via a number hit across Europe, Australia, and the US.
But come November, Katy Perry will take a break from kissing girls to host this year's EMAs!
Perry was frothing when she heard the news: "I was so excited when I heard that I was nominated for two awards, but when I was asked to host the show I wet myself, Fergie-style!
"To follow in the footsteps of previous hosts Christina Aguilera, Tom Jones, P. Diddy and Snoop Dogg at this prestigious event is an incredible honour -- do they know what they are getting into? I just hope that I don't spill my cocktail!" Katy will be hitting the stage with be Grace Jones, Sugababes, Solange and Tokio Hotel with performances from Duffy, The Killers, P!nk, Kid Rock and Beyonce!
Also headlining EMA news is Leona Lewis who will be competing for the United Kingdom after winning a nomination for Europe's Favourite act.
The exotic blue-eyed beauty will represent the UK against other European acts including Quest Pistols (of Ukraine) and Shiri Maimon (of Israel). Our bets are on the guy with the coolest name in music history, Der Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig from Holland!
