Lady Gaga and Katy Perry lead nominations for the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs).

Both singers are in the running to win five categories and go head to head with each other and 'Russian Roulette' singer Rihanna in three of them: Best Pop, Best Female and Best Song - some of the night's biggest awards.

The three ladies they will be pitted against Miley Cyrus and Shakira in the Best Female category.

The Best Male section will see Eminem, Justin Bieber, Usher, Enrique Iglesias and Kanye West battle it out at the awards, which will be held in Madrid on November 7.

Katy's 'California Gurls' and Gaga's collaboration with Beyonce, 'Telephone', are also featured in the Best Video category, which sees them up against Thirty Seconds To Mars' track 'Kings and Queens', Plan B's 'Prayin' and Eminem's 'Love the Way You Lie' - which also features Rihanna.

Gaga was the big winner at last Saturday's MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) - the US Equivalent of the EMAs - taking home eight trophies from 13 nominations.

Accepting the trophy for Best Video for single 'Bad Romance', Gaga said: "I was so nervous tonight that I'd let my fans down.

"I promised that if I won this tonight, I'd announce the name of my new record."

She then went on to tell the thrilled crowd her new album would be called Born This Way, before singing part of the title song.
