2019 MTV EMAs: And The Nominees Are ...

MTV announced nominations for the "2019 MTV EMAs," with frontrunner Ariana Grande securing seven nods. Grande's nominations include "Best Artist," "Best Video" for her viral hit "thank you, next," as well as "Best Song" alongside Shawn Mendes and EMA nominee newcomers Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish, who all follow Grande with six nods each. Latin American sensation J Balvin follows closely with five nominations including "Best Artist," and Lizzo and Taylor Swift join the above contenders for "Best U.S. Act," scoring four nods each.

To tease this year's nominees, MTV poured fans a "taste of Seville" with beautiful coffee art reveals. As a play on the traditional Spanish cortado, the nominees for "Best Artist," "Best Video" and "Biggest Fans" were revealed via artistic foam cream visuals. The videos premiered across MTV's global digital platforms and a coalition of media partners.

The "2019 MTV EMAs" will take place at the FIBES, Conference & Exhibition Centre of Seville, Spain, and broadcast live on MTV in nearly 180 countries on Sunday, November 3 at 9:00pm ET.

Voting is now open at mtvema.com until November 2nd at 11:59pm CET, so fans can cast votes beginning today.
