The Red Hot Chili Peppers top the nominations for 13th annual MTV Europe Music Awards, which will take place Nov. 2 in Copenhagen. The rock act is up for four awards, including best rock act and best group, while its "Stadium Arcadium" is up for best album, and the single "Dani California" is up for best song.

Madonna, Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Christina Aguilera, Kanye West and Muse snagged three nominations each. Muse and Furtado are the first artists confirmed to perform at the show.

Justin Timberlake will host and also perform at the event, to be broadcast simultaneously from the city's Bella Center and Radhuspladsen Town Square.

Nominations for most of the 30 award categories were assembled by the network's voting "Academy" of 1,700 people, gathered from the music industry and pan-European MTV viewers. The video category and the Free Your Mind award are chosen exclusively by MTV Europe viewers, but the rest of the categories can be voted on via online and mobile platforms.
