MTV EMAs 2015: Everything You Need to Know About Tonight’s Show

Tonight is the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards, which will be taking place at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan. And while the show’s track record alone is enough to make you want to tune in (this is, after all, the show where in 2013 good ol’ Miley Cyrus sparked up a joint on stage. Hey, it’s Europe.), there is another obvious reason to watch it.

The show will be co-hosted by Ruby Rose from Orange Is The New Black (not like you needed me to tell you that) and Ed Sheeran.

This morning, Ruby Rose has already shared a few Instagram photos as she prepares for the big night (see below):

Set to perform during the show is Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Ellie Goulding, Rudimental with Ed Sheeran, Tori Kelly, and Jason Derulo.

Taylor Swift is, to no surprise, the expected winner for Best Female. For Best Male, it will most likely be between Ed Sheeran And Justin Bieber. T. Swift and Biebs have already won the most nominations, Swift with 9 and Bieber with 6. Bieber has already won the Best Canada Act this year, and Swift the Best US Act, so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top for the Best Worldwide Act: North America.
