The Nov. 1 MTV Europe Music Awards' artist line-up is taking shape. Will.i.am and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger will perform together on Munich's OlympiaHalle stage for the music TV broadcaster's flagship European awards event, organizers said today.

They will join previously-confirmed artists Avril Lavigne, Foo Fighters, Mika and My Chemical Romance on the night.

Presenters at the 2007 edition include former tennis star Boris Becker, British R&B singer Craig David, Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan, pop-punk group Good Charlotte and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins will commentate for the broadcast from the MTV EMA's backstage bar, while rapper Snoop Dogg will host the main event.

Additional performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

As previously reported, MTV Europe is opening-up its voting process to allow the European public decide nominees and winners for all most of its award categories, each of which have been re-titled from previous editions.

"We have to set ourselves a goal to keep ahead of the pack, and strive to make ours the most compelling one," Richard Godfrey, senior VP of content & music, MTV Networks International and executive producer of the MTV EMAs, tells Billboard.biz. "It's important that we keep this show at the head of the pack, and we spend a lot of time working on it."

Meanwhile, Latvia's Astro'n'out has been eliminated from the viewer-voted New Sounds of Europe awards category, which MTV has established this year to boost home-grown and emerging acts from individual European markets.

The selected artists will be whittled-down on the evening to three finalists, with the overall winner performing at the concert. Godfey says more than 3 million votes have been cast for the new category, and 12 million have been spread across all the MTV EMA 2007 awards.

Sony Ericsson and clothing retailer Esprit are co-sponsoring this year's gala, which visits Germany for a third time. Berlin hosted the inaugural 1994 event in Berlin, while the show came to Frankfurt in 2001.
