Coldplay: The band, onstage and off

Coldplay rocks UCLA.

Already loaded with stateside talent like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and host Selena Gomez, MTV announced they've added U.K. stars and party-rockers to the MTV Europe Music Awards performance lineup. Brits Coldplay and Jessie J and L.A. electro-rappers LMFAO will take the EMA stage at the Dublin-based awards show on Nov. 6. The MTV EMAs will air on Tr3s: MTV, Musica y Mas at 6 p.m. ET on Nov. 6, with a stateside telecast on mtvU the following day at 12 p.m.

"I can't quite believe I'm nominated for three awards. It's like a dream, I keep pinching myself. And being nominated for Best U.K./Ireland Act alongside artists like Adele, Coldplay, Kasabian and Florence [+ The Machine] is an honor," said Jessie J of her EMA involvement.

Lady Gaga leads all nominees with six EMA nods, with Katy Perry and Bruno Mars close behind with four each. Adele, Justin Bieber, and 30 Seconds To Mars also came in strong, each with three nominations.

Those across the sea won't be alienated: U.S. and Canadian fans can vote for North American nominees for the Worldwide Act award. The winner will represent the continent against other nominees across the world.

Other stars up for awards include Britney Spears, Rihanna, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z and Kanye West, Pitbull, Eminem, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, David Guetta, the Beastie Boys and Justice.

Fans can vote for their favorite artists and see a complete list of nominees at the MTV EMA website.
