Selena Gomez (“Love You Like a Love Song”) is set to host the 18th annual MTV EMA on November 6, 2011 at 9pm GMT from Belfast’s Odyssey Arena. The 2011 MTV EMA is sponsored by Dell, Replay, Hyundai and Swatch.
For the first time ever, MTV will have its EMA host fully integrated into the show across multiple screens, as Gomez will be the lynchpin across all platforms for MTV’s global celebration of the year’s best in music.
