Taylor Swift leads the nominations for the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) with six. The 27-year-old singer is up for Best Artist, Best Look, Best Pop, Biggest Fans, Best Video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ and Best US Act.

And Taylor could make history at the SSE Arena, Wembley, in London on November 12 as the most awards previously won in one night at the ceremony is four, a record jointly held by bothering Britney Spears and Lady Gaga.

Shawn Mendes could also challenge the record, as he’s up for five awards – competing against Taylor for Best Artist, Biggest Fans and Best Pop, and also Best Single for ‘There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back’ and Best Canadian Act – while Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran follow closely behind with four nods each.

This year sees the Best Male and Best Female categories retired and replaced instead with a Best Artist prize, which will see Taylor, Shawn, Ed, and Kendrick compete against Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus for the coveted honor.

Shawn will be fighting for the Best Song award alongside Ed, who got the nod for ‘Shape of You’, Clean Bandit ft. Sean Paul and Anne-Marie with ‘Rockabye’, Dj Khaled ft. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller’s ‘Wild Thoughts’, and Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber with ‘Despacito’.

The Best Local Act is voted for in various regions, in competing for the honour in the UK & Ireland are Ed, Little Mix, Stormzy, Dua Lipa, and wildcard entry Louis Tomlinson, while other notable nominees are Drake and Justin Bieber in Canada, Bruno Mars and wildcard Fifth Harmony in the US, and Kygo in Norway.

This year’s EMAs will be hosted by Rita Ora, who is also in the running for the Best Look award. The most hottly contested category of Best Hip Hop will see 12-time Grammy winner Eminem battle it out with Drake, Kendrick Lamar , with unexpected nominees Post Malone and Future. With Eminem back in studio working on an album, it is clear that this could be biggest award of the night.
