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.

"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.
