These 10 regional nominees will then battle for votes for the Worldwide Act distinction, and the winner will be named at the show in Amsterdam.

"The Worldwide Act segment is a clear example of how the MTV EMAs has evolved from a pan-Euro focused show into a truly global event celebrating the year's biggest music artists. Fans around the world are able to vote for their favorite local music heroes and ultimately drive the results," said Bruce Gillmer, Executive Vice President of Talent and Music Programming/Events, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN). "The MTV EMA highlights the biggest and best international and regional superstars, and we're really looking forward to celebrating all of this incredible talent in Amsterdam."

Bangerz also debuted at #1 in Canada, Australia, Ireland and the UK, where Cyrus currently has a double #1 with "Wrecking Ball" hitting the top slot on the UK singles chart. Cyrus is nominated in four "2013 MTV EMA" categories, including Best Pop, Best Female, Best Video for "Wrecking Ball" and Best US Act. Her return to the EMA stage will mark her second "MTV EMA" performance to date.

This year, 186 of the world's hottest musical acts have enjoyed the MTV EMA spotlight as nominees in the Worldwide Act voting competition. For the past six weeks, MTV has given fans around the world the chance to vote online for their favorite hometown artists to help them win the "Best Act" title in their respective market.
