The Killers to perform at the ‘2013 MTV EMA’!
When The Killers and Redfoo are in the same sentence, you know you’re in for a good time and that’s exactly what we’re planning to give you when the 2013 MTV EMA kick off in less than a month’s time!
Taking the EMA stage for the fourth time, The Killers will perform for fans in the lead up to the release of their fifth album ‘Direct Hits’ on sale from November 11.
The mega-group will also be headlining the MTV World Stage concert on November 8, as part of MTV’s Music Week activities in Amsterdam.
Party rockin’ Redfoo of LMFAO will be joining the band, announced as the Master of Ceremonies and (fingers crossed) using his position to spark the twerking vs. shuffling debate, while Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande will be reporting behind the scenes as the official backstage host.
"So excited to add some ridiculousness to this crazy party, whooooooooooo!" said Redfoo. While Ariana added: “I’m so excited to go to the MTV EMAs and be the eyes and ears backstage for all the fans around the world! Make sure to follow @MTVEMA on November 11th so you can see all my updates from the big night. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”
Katy Perry has also been announced as the first performer to kick off the night, with Ron Burgundy (AKA Will Ferrell) tapped as a special guest.
In the lead with five nods each, Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are this year’s faves, closely followed by Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke – each up for four awards – so make sure you get voting for your favourites!
