Rita Ora to host MTV Europe Music Awards in London
1 October 2017 Latest News
Rita Ora will host this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards.
The ceremony is being held in London for the first time in more than 20 years.
“I’ve always watched it, since I was younger,” says Rita, who was born in Kosovo. “I’ve always kind of had memories from the MTV EMAs and I’m from Europe.”
The singer will perform her new music at the event on 12 November at the SSE Arena in Wembley.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced the venue news in February as part of his London Is Open campaign. Mr Khan said it was proof England’s capital hadn’t become “insular” since the UK voted to leave the EU in last year’s referendum.
The full list of presenters and performers for the MTV EMAs will be announced over the next few weeks.
