Justin Bieber Leads 2021 MTV EMAs Nominations

bieber

Canada’s Justin Bieber dominates the list of nominees for the 2021 MTV Europe Music Awards.

The Ontario-born singer has eight nominations, including Best Artist, Pop and Video. His track with The Kid LAROI, “Stay,” is up for both Best Song and Collaboration.

Bieber is also nominated for Best Canadian Act along with Johnny Orlando, Shawn Mendes, The Weeknd and Tate McRae.

The Weeknd is vying for Best Artist against Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X and last year’s winner, Lady Gaga. His “Save Your Tears” remix featuring Ariana Grande earned a nod for Best Collaboration.

Also repping Canada are Daniel Caesar (who is featured on Bieber’s “Peaches”) and Drake (nominated for Best Hip Hop).

The MTV EMAs will be handed out Nov. 14 at the Papp László Budapest Sportaréna. This summer, Hungary’s conservative government passed legislation to ban LGBTQ representation to anyone under 18 but MTV has said it will not tolerate any interference with the broadcast. The show will, in fact, honour young LGBTQ activists with the Generation Change Award.
