MTV today announced the five nominees that will compete in the all-new Worldwide Act category at the 2011 MTV EMA.
For the past five weeks, MTV has given fans across the globe a chance to vote for their favorite hometown artists, all to help that local act secure the nomination and represent their respective region at this year’s EMAs.
Starting today, these five nominees will go head to head in one last round of voting in an effort to earn the Worldwide Act distinction.
The five global finalists are: Lena (Europe), BIGBANG (Asia Pacific), Abdelfattah Grini (Africa/India/Middle East), Britney Spears (North America) and Restart (Latin America).
The Worldwide Act category celebrates diversity and the breadth of all the music that MTV has to offer by nominating incredible artists from all corners of the world.
