Europe’s biggest award show is coming closer and closer. Set to be held in Spain this year, Camila Cabello leads the MTV EMA Awards 2018 with six nominations.

And while there is great interest in the major categories, some Eurovision acts have also landed in their regional categories.

As ever, the EMAs are mostly decided by audience vote, and each country also gets to vote for its best local act. These categories usually attract a few nominations of recent Eurovision acts, with Loïc Nottet, Amir and Magdi Rúzsa winning for their countries last year.

This year sees fewer Eurovision acts nominated than usual. However, some still made the cut:

  • Zibbz (Switzerland 2018) — Best Swiss Act
  • Felix Sandman (Melodifestivalen 2018) — Best Swedish Act
  • Benjamin Ingrosso (Sweden 2018) — Best Swedish Act
  • Margaret (Krajowe Eliminacje 2016, Melodifestivalen 2018) — Best Polish Act
  • Nadav Guedj (Israel 2015) — Best Israeli Act
  • Annalisa (Sanremo 2013,15,16,18) — Best Italian Act
  • Diogo Piςarra (Festival do Canςão 2018) — Best Portuguese Act

Voting for all the above categories and more is now open at MTVEMA.com. The awards ceremony itself will take place at the Bizkaia Arena in Bilbao, Spain on Sunday 4 November. This is the third time that the show will be held in Spain.

Best Spanish Act includes Brisa Fenoy, whose biggest commercial hit is arguably being one of the songwriters of “Lo malo”.

Nice to see Diogo even after he left the Festival da Cancao. That was all such bullcrap. Also, why do you suppose Nadav is nominated but not Netta?

Noa Kirel (one of the options for the Israeli act) is now the girl of Mergui – the amazing talent that lost in the last min. to Netta, and if you ask me – he is the most talented boy here in Israel (17 years old)… Keep your eyes (&ears) on him !!! https://www.instagram.com/jonathanmergui/
