TAYLOR SWIFT LEADS NOMINATIONS FOR 2017 MTV EMAs

MTV today announced nominations for the 2017 MTV EMAs, with pop superstar Taylor Swift leading the pack. Swift nabbed six nods including Best Video for her record-breaking “Look What You Made Me Do” which debuted at the MTV VMAs in August, while global sensation Shawn Mendes nearly ties Swift with five nominations, including Best Song and Best Artist—the latter category featuring the two nominees going head-to-head.

Best Artist nominees Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran earned four nods each, including Best Local Act nods for their respective home regions (Best US Act and Best UK & Ireland Act, specifically). Sheeran’s smash single “Shape of You” was also nominated for Best Song, along with DJ Khaled’s chart topper “Wild Thoughts,” Shawn Mendes’ pop hit “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s summer anthem “Despacito” remix featuring Justin Bieber, and Clean Bandit’s mega pop hit “Rockabye.”

Voting is open now at mtvema.com, including the Best US Act local voting category, for which wildcard nominee Fifth Harmony has been chosen by fans via social vote. Similarly, Louis Tomlinson has been chosen by fans via social vote as a wildcard nominee for Best UK & Ireland Act.

2017 MTV EMAs voting is now open until 11 November at 11.59pm CET so visit mtvema.com to cast your vote!
