Katy Perry will host the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) in Berlin next month.

Perry is the first to be asked to host two successive shows in the 15-year history of the awards. She presented the 2008 event in Liverpool.

The 2009 awards ceremony takes place at Berlin's O2 World on Nov. 5 and is broadcast on MTV channels internationally.

"We spend a lot of time and energy carefully considering our potential EMA host," said Bruce Gillmer, co-executive producer and SVP, Talent and Music, MTV Networks International, in a statement. "It's no mean feat to take the central role at a music event of the scale and heritage of the EMAs, but Katy did an outstanding job in Liverpool - and we just kept coming back to her as first choice for this year. Katy's deep connection to the world of music, her dynamic and compelling personality and her worldwide appeal made her a natural choice."

Performers at the EMAs include Green Day, Leona Lewis and Tokio Hotel with more performers and presenters still to be announced. Lady GaGa and Kings of Leon have five nominations apiece.

The awards are sponsored by Sony Ericsson, MTV Games/Harmonix's "The Beatles: Rock Band" and Dell.
