MTV revealed Friday (Oct. 19)  that Nicki Minaj, Halsey and Spanish singer Rosalia will join Janet Jackson as performers for this year's Europe Music Awards. Jackson was announced Wednesday (Oct. 17) as the recipient of the Global Icon Award and is set to perform a medley of her greatest hits during the show.   

The ceremony, which features categories based on genre and region, will air live from the Bilbao Exhibition Centre in Spain on Nov. 4. Minaj hosted the 2014 EMAs in Glasgow, Scotland, and is a nominee in two categories this year: best hip-hop and best look. The "Barbie Tingz" singer released her fourth studio album, Queen, this past summer.   

Rosalia, a Latin Grammy nominee, is up for best Spanish act. Winners will be voted on by fans.

Camila Cabello leads the nominations with six, and Ariana Grande and Post Malone tied with five nominations each. Other nominees include Drake, Shawn Mendes and Dua Lipa.

MTV also announced its first presenters of the night, actors Michael Peña and Diego Luna, who star in the companion web series to Netflix's NarcosNarcos: Mexico. Hailee Steinfeld, singer and star of the upcoming film, Bumblebee, will host the awards ceremony.
