Justin Bieber leads the way with eight nominations at the upcoming 2021 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs).

The Sorry singer's nominations include Best Artist, Biggest Fans, and two nods for Song of the Year, for Peaches, his collaboration with Daniel Caesar and Giveon, and Stay, a team-up with Australian teen The Kid Laroi.

Lil Nas X and Doja Cat also dominate the categories with six nominations each. Italian Eurovision winners Måneskin are up for two gongs, a first in the competition's history.

The EMAs were first introduced to Europe in 1994 and rotate across cities in the continent each year.

Last year's awards were held virtually for the first time due to COVID travel restrictions, and hosted by a 3-piece Little Mix. Shortly afterwards, absent member Jesy Nelson confirmed her departure from the group.

K-pop titans BTS took home four awards, and Lady Gaga beat the likes of Bieber, Dua Lipa, and The Weeknd to Best Artist off the back of her sixth album, Chromatica.

This year's bash will take place in Budapest, Hungary on November 14. Unlike its American counterpart, the VMAs, the majority of awards are fan-voted.
