Jessie J, Coldplay, and LMFAO will be performing at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards hosted by Selena Gomez and broadcast live from Belfast, North Ireland on November 6th. Jessie J and LMFAO will be making their first appearances on the awards show, joining the Red Hot Chili Peppers who were previously announced as performers.
“I can’t quite believe I’m nominated for three awards. It’s like a dream, I keep pinching myself. And being nominated for Best UK/Ireland Act alongside artists like Adele, Coldplay, Kasabian and Florence is an honor,” stated Jessie J.
“There are only two things that make a man like me happy – that first dunk in a hot fondue and being nominated and performing on the MTV EMA in Belfast,” said LMFAO’s Redfoo.
