With five nominations, Rosalía will try to revalidate her status as an international star this Sunday at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) against the main candidate, Harry Stylesin a gala that will feature performances by Muse Y David Guetta, among others.
It will be on the banks of the Rhine in the stately capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, in dusseldorf (Germany), a city that the astronaut who serves as effigy for these popular musical awards had never set foot in but who already proved his solvency in this type of event more than a decade ago when hosted the 2011 Eurovision gala.
Precisely two MTV awardsthose granted Best Latin Video and Best Choreography for “Con Altura” in the branch of these awards that is celebrated in the USA, the Video Music Awards (VMA), were the ones that only three years ago began to crystallize the true scope of Rosalía in the global imagination after the release of “El mal querer” (2018).
The Catalan has not done badly since then in the galas of this chain, at least in those organized on the other side of the Atlantic, wherehe accumulates a total of four, including the best collaboration with Billie Eilish at the 2021 VMAs and the best video editing for “Saoko” at the VMAs held last August.
In the absence of knowing if he will also finally leave his mark at the Europe Music Awards, His attendance at the event is not expected, nor is that of the rest of the main candidates to kings of the night, see the aforementioned Harry Styles (with 7 nominations)Taylor Swift (with six) and nicki minaj (with five).
The Spanish-speaking representation among the nominees does not stop at Rosalía, since the Puerto Rican Bad Bunny could achieve with “Me porto bonito” together with Chencho Corleone the EMA for the best collaboration of the year, just like his compatriot Rauw Alejandro and the Colombian Shakira with “I congratulate you”.
In addition, awards will be given in the categories of “Best Latin Artist” (with Rosalía, Anitta, Bad Bunny, Becky G, J Balvin and Shakira as candidates) and “best Spanish artist” (again with the name of the Catalan among the candidates against Quevedo, Fito & Fitipaldis, Bad Gyal and Dani Fernández).
The musical artist Rita Ora and the actor, writer and director Taika Waititi will take the reins of a “show” which from the PSD Bank Dome will host performances this year by a large number of emerging artists such as Gayle along with more well-known names such as Muse, David Guetta, OneRepublic, Ava Max or Lewis Capaldi.
Gorillaz will help raise the level of this twenty-ninth edition with a guarantee of good music. the musical band of Damon Albarn on the sidelines of Blur will be in charge of warming up the enginess from this same Saturday with a concert behind closed doors in the Tonhalle Düsseldorf of which an extract can be seen during the delivery ceremony tomorrow.
Wink at Ukraine
In it will also behe winners of Eurovision 2022, the Ukrainian Kalush Orchestra, at a time when his country’s conflict with Russia is still active. Their political proclamations marked the gala of the last European festival and it would not be surprising if the group returned to hamake use of the floor taking advantage of this privileged platform of the EMAs which can be followed in 170 countries around the world from 8:00 p.m. GMT (9:00 p.m. in Spain).
In fact, MTV has announced thate will pay tribute to the humanitarian work of three strong Ukrainian women who fight every day to help refugees affected by the humanitarian crisis that is ravaging the country.
