I will only be watching all the EMA stuff on mtv today, although normally its a massive run up and disappointing! But thank god P Diddy is not hosting again! The EMA's move to a different country every year and this year are from Edinburgh in Scotland. They ran out of stage space in the arena so its in a massive tent in the car park! *true fact*
It will be hosted by my fave Christina Aguilera and live in most countries tonight. In the UK it starts at 8pm with a countdown show before with different times across Europe. Its normally shown a week or so later in America. I like it when the celebs go there in tiny dresses and its freezing cold! This is especially funny when it was in Stockholm, and it was minus something temperature and they walked down the red carpet with visible smoke coming out when they breathed lol

Britney Spears has pulled out because "everyone is so mean to her in UK Media" and gone home sick to America suffering from the flu or a crap single and album and all the interviews she does people ask her about Justin, rather than her alleged abortion (quote from popbitch) of an album.
I think it has a good line-up but its so like the American awards, is there any point of it? It used to have insane European artists! In the nominations there is hardly any artists from Italy, Spain, Scandinavia, France, and all the other European MTV's. Where is Eros Ramazotti and Ramstein and past people like that? Its supposed to be European awards. I shall watch it and bitch about it afterwards though.
At least it always has gorgeous gorgeous stage sets!
