▼About the MTV EMA (Europe Music Awards)
The MTV EMA (Europe Music Awards) was originally conceived as an alternative to the MTV VMA (Video Music Awards), which is hosted annually in the United States. First held in Berlin, Germany in 1994, MTV EMA is one of the largest music awards in Europe, held annually in various European cities, and last year in Seville, Spain. Although with the name of “Europe Music Awards,” the awards feature top artists from all over the world beyond the geographical boundaries of Europe and have gained tremendous support from music fans. EMA has always been held as “music awards chosen by fans,” with winners decided by the votes from the MTV audiences around the world. The awards created by MTV and the audiences together directly reflect the review of music fans, therefore it becomes a great honor for the artist to win the award at the EMA. In addition, some of the awards spotlight popular local artists from each country, which is also a highlight unique to the MTV EMA.
