Apparently the Award Show Host Committee (not sure if that exists, but whoever makes those decisions) were impressed with Selena Gomez‘s host duties at the pre-show for the VMAs that they’ve booked her for another hosting gig — at the 18th annual MTV Europe Music Awards! This music extravaganza will be broadcast from Belfast’s Odeyssey Arena in Northern Ireland and will be MTV’s global celebration of this year’s best in music. But Gomez won’t just be standing around looking pretty. As host of the show, she’ll oversee all the onstage antics, performances, winners and key moments of the evening as well as rock out in a number of hot outfits (which, let’s face it, is the best part about the job). Selena will also be on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms before, during and after the show, interacting with fans and giving viewers up-to-the-minute updates on what’s happening. Basically, she’s going to be a very busy girl.
Lady Gaga leads the pack of EMA nominees with six nods, with Katy Perry and Bruno Mars following closely behind with four nominations. Adele, Justin Bieber and Thirty Seconds To Mars are each up for three awards. Other EMA nominees include Foo Fighters, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and many more of our favorite artists. It’s sure to be a star-studded event and Selena could not be more excited to be leading this ultra-talented group. The singer commented on her upcoming job and happily announced, “I’m so excited to be the host of the 2011 MTV EMA – it’s a dream come true! This is such a huge event that always recognizes the biggest stars in music from across the globe, so it’s a real honor to be MC at this year’s show.” Congrats and good luck!
