Best Breakthrough nominee Plan B will also be performing and says it is a dream come true.

Eva, 35, said: "I'm beyond excited to host the 2010 EMAs. And getting to do it in the beautiful city of Madrid is the icing on the cake. I can't wait to see some fabulous performances and I absolutely love that the most nominated artists this year are two amazing women, who are making some of the most exciting music in pop right now!"
'I Kissed a Girl' singer Katy is set to perform a duet with rock band Linkin Park as a special performance for the show.
The 17th annual EMAs will take place at the Caja Magica in the Spanish city, and will be broadcast live on MTV channels across the globe.Posted on 11 Oct 2010 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
