Summary: MTV Europe Music Awards cancels its performance-packed ceremony in Paris due to the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.
The MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) have made the difficult decision to cancel their upcoming ceremony in Paris, which was scheduled for November 5th. The cancellation comes as a result of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, which has led to devastating events in the region. In a statement, a company spokesperson expressed that the current situation does not call for a global celebration and that it is a time of mourning. The decision also takes into account the safety and well-being of the thousands of people involved in bringing the show to life, including employees, crew members, artists, fans, and partners. The statement also mentioned that the EMAs will return in November 2024. Last year’s big winner, Taylor Swift, took home four trophies at the EMAs in Germany. This year, Swift was again the top nominee with seven nominations, followed by Olivia Rodrigo and SZA with six nominations each.
