Justin Bieber set to host MTV EMAs
Thursday 10 March 2011
Justin Bieber is set to host the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs).
The 17-year-old singer is said to be favourite to front the event in Belfast, Northern Ireland in November after impressing bosses with his stint as online host at last year's ceremony in Madrid, Spain.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Justin was such a hit that bosses are considering him for the main event this year.
"Snoop Dogg, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus are also contenders but at the moment it's swinging in Justin's favour."
If he lands the role, Justin would be the youngest-ever host of the ceremony, with organisers believing his presence will convince millions of his fans to tune in - but they are worried proceedings will be complicated if he also wins many of the awards he is tipped for.
The source added: "With him in charge they have the guarantee that his millions of fans worldwide will tune in.
"The only problem is he's likely to win a few awards so it could make his hosting duties more awkward."
Last year, the ceremony was hosted by Eva Longoria, with both Snoop and Katy also having previously presided over the ceremony, in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
