SHAWN MENDES, DNCE, LUKAS GRAHAM AND ZARA LARSSON ARE OFFICIALLY PERFORMING AT 2016 MTV EMAS

The 2016 EMAs performer lineup is a dream come true.

October 11, 2016
Shawn Mendes, Lukas Graham, DNCE and Zara Larsson are now all set to perform at the Ahoy Rotterdam on November 6 at 9pm CET!  We didn't think it was possible but we just got four times more excited for this year's EMAs.
 
We're especially psyched that this year's performers come from all over the world.  There's Shawn Mendes, representing Canada, DNCE representing the United States, the soul-pop band Lukas Graham representing Denmark, and Zara Larsson representing Sweden.
 
All four are first timers when it comes to performing at the EMAs.  They're in good company with three-time EMA winner, Bruno Mars, who is planning on performing his brand new music. All of this fresh talent and music is going to make this night unlike any EMA before.
 
All four acts have been named MTV Push artists and they're all nominees this year.  Mendes actually won the "Best Push" award (along with "Best New") at last year's EMAs.  This year he's a "Best Male" nominee.  Both DNCE and Zara Larsson will be contending for the "Best New" award.  Then Lukas Graham is up for "Best Song." 
 
Upon hearing the good news, Shawn Mendes said, "I'm incredibly honored to be up for four EMAs this year, and I cannot wait to perform in Rotterdam this November!"
 
Lukas Graham is also thrilled to be getting up on the EMAs stage.  They told MTV, "we can't believe we got nominated for 4 EMAs and we get to perform! This year has truly been amazing. Thank you!"
