More on Ariana Grande:
The best-selling male artist in the U.K. was the first to break the news via a Facebook video. “I’ve never been successful enough in Europe to be part of it, and finally I am, so, … yay!” he said. “I hear there’s another female artist performing, … she’s got a few ‘problems’ and hangs out with rappers that might be a bit ‘fancy.'”
Grande, in a statement, said, “I’m definitely looking forward to being part of the party onstage this year.”
Sheeran comes to the gig after starring in the first installment of MTV’s Nine Days and Nights series in June, where he debuted songs off his album, x. He has been nominated for best male and best U.K. & Ireland act.
Grande, who hosted the EMA digital backstage show last year, just performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles last month and took over the MTV airwaves with Total Ariana Live to premiere tracks from her album, My Everything. She has nominated in six MTV EMA categories: best song, best pop, best female, best new, best push and biggest fans.
