MTV European Music Awards 2009 Host

Watch MTV Europe Music Awards Live Stream this year which will be held in Berlin, Germany on November 5th. The 1st MTV EMA was also held in the same city but this time, the venue is in O2 World, a multi-use indoor arena that can accommodate 17,000 people. This year's show will be hosted again by American pop-rock singer, Katy Perry for the second time in a row. She's the first artist who has been invited by MTV to host the same event for two consecutive years.

Perry gained worldwide recognition in 2008 with her breakthrough album, “One of the Boys” and Grammy nominated first single, “I Kissed A Girl” which spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single became a worldwide smash hit in more than 30 countries and was followed by two more #1’s with “Hot N Cold” and “Waking Up in Vegas”. She's also known for her outspoken personality and bizarre fashion sense which have been derived from vintage pin-up girls and classic movie actresses.

Her parents, both pastors, have introduced her to music. She started singing in church at the age of nine until she was seventeen. She grew up listening to gospel music and her mother forbade her to listen to secular music. As a child, she learned dancing at rec halls in her hometown of Santa Barbara, California. Her dancing skills were honed by seasoned dancers who taught her different forms of dancing including swing, the Lindy Hop and jitterbug. Her parents encouraged her to take up singing lessons after her freshman year of high school.

MTV's co-executive producer Bruce Gilmer said that the organization dedicates a substantial amount of time and effort in searching for the perfect candidate for the said event.

"Katy's deep connection to the world of music, her dynamic and compelling personality and her worldwide appeal made her a natural choice," he added.

He also stated that Perry did an outstanding job in hosting the 15th MTV EMA which was held in Liverpool, England.
Perry captured audiences at the 2008 MTV EMAs as she gave a spectacular opening by riding astride a giant cherry Chapstick. She was nominated for two categories, Most Addicitve Track and Best New Artist, wherein she snagged the award for the latter. Her hit single “Waking Up in Vegas” has been nominated for the Best Video category in 2009 MTV European Music Awards Live in Berlin.
