This year’s MTV Europe Music Awards already snagged performances from two of America’s biggest pop stars in Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, so why not go for the trifecta? Miley Cyrus is now slated to perform at the ceremony, and quite frankly we can’t think of anyone who’d serve as a better cultural ambassador to the Old World than Miley frigging Cyrus.
As you probably know, they’re a little more sexually liberal across the pond (especially in Amsterdam, where the show will be held), and television has fewer decency restrictions. (Nipples and sex noises! Right there on your TV in the middle of the day when you’re in your hotel room with your family!) So it’ll be interesting to see if Miley tries to outdo her controversial MTV VMAs performance with a racy set that will send more shockwaves across the Web, or if she’ll dial it back the way she has on recent performances at SNL or Ellen.
The Killers are also scheduled to perform at the MTV EMAs, which air November 10 from the Netherlands. This year’s broadcast will be hosted by Redfoo of LMFAO, with Ariana Grande serving as backstage host, whatever that is.
