MTV today announced nominations for the “2018 MTV EMAs” with Camila Cabello leading the pack. Cabello snagged six nominations including “Best Song” and “Best Video” for her chart-topping hit “Havana” featuring Young Thug, as well as “Best Artist” alongside Ariana Grande and Post Malone, who follow Cabello with five nods each. Drake and Dua Lipa also join the above contenders for “Best Artist,” scoring four nods each alongside Shawn Mendes, including “Best Local Act” for all three of their respective home countries.

MTV creatively teased the nominees via a series of captivating Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) style videos, with visuals involving floral foam smashing, paint mixing and kinetic sand slicing for the “Best Artist,” “Best Song” and “Best Video” categories. The mesmerizing video reveals were broadcast across MTV’s global digital platforms and a coalition of media partners.

The “2018 MTV EMAs” will air live around the globe from Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Spain on Sunday, November 4 at 9:00pm CEST, and across MTV’s global network of channels in more than 180 countries and territories, reaching more than half a billion households around the world.
