Every year, the nominations list for the MTV Europe Music Awards includes a slew of Eurovision artists—and 2013 is no exception. Last Monday it was revealed that plenty of Eurovision acts will be competing for “Best Local Act” in their home country. The full list can be read below. Anyone you’re particularly thrilled to see on the MTV EMAs list? Let us know!

Best Czech & Slovak act

Peter Bic Project (2010 national selection Slovakia)

Best Danish act

Jimilian (Junior MGP 2006)

Best German act

Lena (2010,2011)

Best Greek act

Michalis Chatzigiannis (1998)

The 2013 EMA’s will be held on November 10th in Amsterdam. Along with Avicii, the man responsible for the 2013 Eurovision anthem “We Write the Story”: Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Rihanna, Robin Thicke ft T.I & Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Eminem, Jay Z, Justin Timberlake and Afrojack will be performing.

We’re sure Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance was inspired by Eurovision, so her EMA performance should be VERY interesting. With so many nominations, we’re sure our Eurovision stars will take a few awards home. Votes can be cast for this year’s EMAs from all over the world on the MTV website. Good luck to them all!

Ergh, I wish the EMA main show was awarding the popular acts from each country instead of what sort of North American music charts well there (besides a few). Maybe that’s too Eurovisionesque of me lol It’s basically a low quality repeat of the VMAs (not that they’re high quality anyway..)
