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.
