All the Big Questions We Have Going Into the 2018 EMA

MTV EMA weekend is finally upon us and we've got loads of questions about how the night will unfold. With Hailee Steinfeld hosting the show and a massive performer lineup that includes Little Mix, Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha, Marshmello, Jason Derulo and Janet Jackson, wigs are bound to be snatched.

Who will be the night's biggest winner? We know Camila Cabello is the most-nominated artist with nods in six categories but Ariana Grande and Post Malone aren't far behind. Drake and Dua Lipa also have a solid chance of winning big with their four nominations. Maybe we'll be blindsided and the biggest winner will be someone totally unexpected!
What kind of antics will Hailee Steinfeld get up to as host? According to recent history, Hailee's bound to have some fun with this hosting gig. After all, Bebe Rexha pranked Shawn Mendes and Zara Larsson, Rita Ora showed up to the red carpet wearing a bath robe, and Nicki Minaj played a round of golf in the middle of the show.


What will everyone wear? With bold dressers like Nicki Minaj, Little Mix, Janet Jackson and Bebe Rexha attending this year's EMA, we're looking forward to some major lewks. The big question is: whose look will be the most memorable?
Will Ashlee Simpson and Lindsay Lohan make early 2000s kids' dreams come true by hanging out? Ashlee Simpson and Lindsay Lohan were THE It girls of the early 2000s and now, after all these years, they're going to be in the same room to present awards. We can only hope that they lock eyes during Panic! At The Disco's performance and remember the good old days of side swept bangs, low-cut jeans and flip phones.


Spain!! We can't wait to come see you at the #MTVEMA November 4th!! 💕

Will Hailee Steinfeld actually perform new music and what will it sound like? Hailee took to Twitter to announce that she'll be hosting the show and also suggested that she'll be performing a new song. We have sooo many questions. What's the song's vibe? Will the song feature another artist? Does this mean there's a new Hailee Steinfeld album on the horizon?

Who's the biggest Janet Jackson stan? Global Icon recipient Janet Jackson has had a huge impact on pop and R&B music, including the work of many of the EMA nominees. Watching the biggest musicians in the world freak out when Janet takes the stage is definitely going to be a highlight of the night.
Tune in to the red carpet show at 8pm CET and the main show at 9pm CET on 4 November to see what happens! Read about all the ways to watch the show here. Follow the @MTVEMA on social media for exclusive coverage of all the action!
