MTV EMA Worldwide Act Nominees Announced [NEWS]

Shared by on October 24, 2011  

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.

Fans can vote at until 11:59PM CET on Friday, 4th November, and the Worldwide Act winner will be announced at the show.

Selena Gomez will host the event from Belfast's Odyssey Arena on 6th November and you can catch the proceedings from 9pm GMT on MTV.

  • Atticus

    The multi click way is the fastest. Hit the vote button as fast as you can until you see the message that says thank you for voting. The votes count.
    DO NOT REFRESH THE PAGE. IT IS SLOW. What you do is vote, click on a category below above the World Act category and then quickly click the World Act category again.

  • Deakemaz

    yooo!!! lets work to vote vip haha !! daebak!!

  • Chibicles

    it's funny that AKP published this article already and i only found two bashers and the rest of non-VIPs are all in this together to support kpop in general. :)

    let the new battle begin. Britney may have crazy stans but VIPs are also all over the world. they also say lotsa teens are going crazy over Restart but I think VIPs can still work hard and beat these guys. :)

    Don't just vote only on the MTV EMA UK site, you can vote for Big Bang
    on every European ema site, if one says that you can't vote anymore
    continue to vote on another one, in that way it's not connected to

    Everytime their category is last on the list

    Romania you can add this to your article, that'd be great.

    I am so happy that they are included in the second round..

    With all these ups and downs we're going through, I am delighted that we're still united and going strong...

    We did it in the first round, we can do it again in the second round. The competition might be harder but we're VIPs, we're very special people... hehehe... LET'S GO!!! FIGHTING everyone!

    I don't know how relevant this is and it's long, but some notes:
    my computer is pretty slow, it's a netbook, couple years old. I noticed sometimes watching veoh or dailymotion on it made it a bit laggy, so I opened three tabs of videos of 2NE1tv on dailymotion and refreshed them every couple minutes to make my computer lag a bit. Because of that, there was more delay between when I started to click/vote and the time where the "thanks for the vote!" popped up.

    starting around norway, I figured out if I went to the page & get ready to vote, and then open a new dailymotion video, I could keep clicking and literally get like 40-50 votes in at once because of  lag. I literally did Hungaria with only one refresh and Asia in 2.

    For me, if I clicked the blank spot where the vote button should have been but hadn't appeared yet between refreshes, it still counted.

    so uhh, fighting! and thanks for the post *-*

    I went through every website/country and maxed them out x3 
    -proud- proof: kekeke

  • Niakoes

  • tiararogue

  • myTOPsecret

    hope that all of the members can attend EMA ..if others  are suspended from any activities hope YG can exempt this..if 5 of them can perform its already a reward to all VIP's who really voted them..^^

  • imaginary superstar

    the 1st round of voting is to determine w/c artists will be ASIA-PAcific's official representative for the EMA's world wide Act Category.

    no awards will be given to the regional winners except the recognition and prestige to represent in the category. (as far as i know)

    this round of voting until 4th of November is to determine who will be the official winner of the WOrldwide act category [could also mean the global winner :)]. the winner will then be presented and awarded the trophy at the MTV EMA ceremony in Belfast.

  • myTOPsecret

    ahhh that's sad i want them to receive an award..i thought this would be another category,and that they already won the asia pacific wwa category(with award)..This will be very tough for us..

  • Zetsy

    Im a bit worried bout Britney,but come on VIPs im sure we can do this!! GO GO GO!!

  • vip

    *for d mobile, dun click go back after voting, it will not be counted, juz click d worldwide act to vote again...
    look like many ppl still using multiples click... dun click multiple times
    *d no of time tat thank you for voting appear= no of time u vote
    so, juz click one time, dun click many times before d thank you for voting appear...
    if u dun believe it, u can try the megafan event(tis event is not important for us,bigbang didnt take part in tis,it can be a way for us to check is it multiple vote counted)
    u can try it... on the top right coner of the website, sign in ur
    twitter or fb account... n try to click as much as possible before thank
    you for voting appear... after u reach max... click the ur profile on
    top right corner to c the point u gt... u can gt 10 points for sign in,
    vote, n etc(go to megafan to c the way to get d point)...
    for me,after click it multiple times, i gt 100+ only after reach max(but actually i should gt 1000+ for 100 vote)...

    keep on voting... fighting!!! fighting!!!

  • Big Bang Fighting ♥

    Awesome work VIPs! I was so happy when I saw they had gotten the most votes, now they just really need to win the overall category :)
    So I've been reading about the many various ways to vote more quickly and how to surpass the 100 vote limit.
    I had previously voted by clicking the vote button as many times as possible, however after reading some comments about how it might not work (some people tried it on megafan and it didn't add up to 100 votes) I started voting a different way. I just opened about 6 windows on chrome and minimised it and clicked once on the vote button each time(as suggested by other users priorly) until it reached 100 votes.
    I just want to ensure that every single one of my votes will be counted, because I've been voting for them not only on every region's site, but also on facebook and the mobile.
    The multiple click way may be the most quickest way but it hasn't been confirmed if it acutally works (please correct this if you know for sure it works).
    Alright, off to vote more now. Big Bang fighting!  ♥

  • Ivory Sim

    voted 300 times today already!haha.did it usin internet explorer,google chrome and mozilla firefox.muahahahahaha

  • woneeey

    If you click multiple times, the votes are also counted more.
    It means the more you click multipe times, the faster you can reach vote limit.
