Ed Sheeran to host 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA)

Ed Sheeran has marked another career milestone after being
confirmed as the host of this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Milan. The 22nd MTV European Music Awards 2015 will be held on Sunday (24
October) at 9pm EST. Model and actress Ruby Rose will co-host the ceremony. For the first time in the music awards history,
MTV is offering a virtual 360-degree live streaming experience to its
fans via Android and iOS app.
Taking to social media to celebrate the news, the
flame-haired singer-songwriter couldn’t hide his excitement. “So happy
to say I’m hosting the #MTVEMAs on 25th October! Cannot wait,’ the
British musician announced to his 15 million Twitter followers.
Rose, who is famed for starring in hit drama Orange Is The New Black,
also tweeted the news, telling fans: “So excited to be hosting the MTV
EMAS In Milan with Mr @edsheeran !!! See you there!!”
Apart from hosting the show, the Thinking Out Loud hit maker will
also perform in the popular music event. “I think for me as a host, I’m
going to try and do my job and introduce people but I think I’m allowed
to kind of say what I want – not necessarily in the sense of me being
rude or anything, but I don’t have to follow a rigid script,” Sheeran
told Yahoo about how he plans to host the show.
pop singer Justin Bieber will also perform at the EMAs along with
Pharrell Williams, Andrea Bocelli, Ellie Goulding, James Bay, Jason
Derulo and Jess Glynne.
