NEW YORK/LONDON—OCT. 20, 2020 – MTV today confirmed that fierce female pop superstars Little Mix will host and perform ‘Sweet Melody’ from upcoming studio album ‘Confetti’ in the “2020 MTV EMAs” airing on Sunday, November 8th.
MTV revealed Little Mix as the hosts of this year’s EMA by releasing an animated teaser featuring the band as cartoon superheroes. The animation was created in partnership with the production company Eddy/Blinkink and young French collective Potto and will be broadcast across MTV International regions.
“What an honour! To present the MTV EMA’s is a dream, it’s such a special event.” Said Little Mix, “We’ve always loved watching the spectacular performances and seeing who everyone has voted to win. This year we’ll also be performing our new single ‘Sweet Melody’, our second EMA performance. The show will go on and we can’t wait!”
We’re thrilled to welcome Little Mix, who performed at our 2018 show in Bilbao, back to the EMA Stage,” said Bruce Gillmer, President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events for ViacomCBS Media Networks. “Hosting and performing is no small feat, but there is no doubt this powerhouse group will crush it!”
Little Mix also nabbed four “2020 MTV EMA” nominations for “Best Pop” alongside BTS, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, “Best Group” alongside 5 Seconds of Summer, BLACKPINK, BTS, Chloe x Halle and CNCO as well as a nomination for “Best Virtual Live” for “UNCancelled” and a “Best UK & Ireland Act” local act nomination joining artists Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, Dave and Stormzy. Last year they won their 4th MTV EMA Award for “Best UK & Ireland Act” at the 2019 ceremony in Seville, Spain.
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as the world’s biggest girl band having sold over 50 million records worldwide, collected over 17 million Spotify listeners, received over 3 billion YouTube views, and collated 12 billion streams worldwide. 2019 witnessed Little Mix win their second Brit Award – for Best British Video for ‘Woman Like Me’, and perform the same song live at the ceremony.
In September, Little Mix launched a brand-new TV series for BBC One, Little Mix The Search. Additionally, they announced ‘Confetti’, a massive UK and Ireland Arena Tour for 2021.
