MTV Europe Music Awards postponed due to security concerns

Due to concerns about “the state of the world” and security in light of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, the MTV Europe Music Awards have been postponed.

One of the greatest awards shows in the industry, the 30th annual music event was scheduled to take place on November 5 at the Paris Nord Villepinte in Paris.

The biggest names in the industry put on spectacular shows during the annual starfest, which is televised live on MTV in more than 150 countries.

The EMAs would have taken place in the French capital for the first time in 28 years if this year’s event had gone ahead.

French President Emmanuel Macron was only 17 years old when the awards were last held in Paris, and designer Jean-Paul Gaultier served as the host.

Pop sensation Rita Ora and her husband, film director Taika Waititi, hosted the event last year at the PSD Bank Dome in Duesseldorf, Germany.

After an astounding six nominations, Taylor Swift led the victors with four wins.

The 32-year-old singer defeated top international acts like Foo Fighters and Stormzy to win Best Video and Best Longform Video for her 10-minute rendition of All Too Well (Taylor’s Version).

At the star-studded presentation, Bebe Rexha, David Guetta, and Harry Styles also took home significant prizes.

Among the performers on stage at the event were David Guetta, Bebe Rexha, and Gorillaz in addition to host Rita Ora.

Ava Max and Muse were among the other acts that joined an amazing night of performances, along with Scottish sensation Lewis Capaldi, who made his EMAs debut.

Not only did Stormzy, GAYLE, OneRepublic, Kalush Orchestra, SPINALL, Äyanna, and Nasty C perform, but the events didn’t finish there.

In the meanwhile, Budapest was to host the yearly music ceremony in 2021.

The MTV EMAs have taken place in 23 European countries since its 1994 Berlin premiere; London is the only city to have hosted the event three times.
