NEW YORK/DÜSSELDORF - Nov. 8, 2022 - MTV today announced Tate McRae has been added to the performance lineup for the "MTV EMAs" 2022, hosted by Rita Ora and Taika Waititi and broadcasting LIVE from Düsseldorf, Germany on Sunday, November 13th. She will join previously announced performers Ava Max, Bebe Rexha, David Guetta, Gorillaz, Lewis Capaldi, Muse, Stormzy, GAYLE, OneRepublic, Kalush Orchestra, SPINALL, Äyanna and Nasty C.
Rising West Philadelphia rapper Armani White will perform during the EMA Red Carpet show, hosted by MTV UK's Jack Saunders and Becca Dudley, broadcasting live on MTV globally and streaming on MTVEMA.com. MTV UK's Harriet Rose will serve as host for the EMA "Backstage Pass" show airing across MTVEMA and global brand social accounts.
Actor, singer and global superstar David Hasselhoff, German-raised model and influencer Leonie Hanne, and Canadian singer-songwriter Lauren Spencer Smith have been added to the line-up of presenters at the "MTV EMAs." Previously announced presenters include Julian Lennon, Leomie Anderson and Sam Ryder.
Returning to the EMA stage, Calgary native singer/songwriter/dancer Tate McRae has become the artist to watch with over 3.2 billion career streams, over 700 million video views, a #1 Top 40 hit and multiple #1 dance hits. Tate's #1 multi-platinum-selling single, "you broke me first" has over 1.4 billion streams worldwide. Tate has collaborated with Khalid on their track "working," DJ Regard & Troye Sivan's on their #1 Dance hit "You," blackbear's "u love u" and Jeremy Zucker on her single "that way." She capped off 2021 with the release of "feel like shit" which currently has nearly 90 million streams worldwide. She's released two EP's ALL THE THINGS I NEVER SAID and TOO YOUNG TO BE SAD EP and spent 2022 touring festivals including Lollapalooza, Firefly Music Festival, Governor's Ball, Austin City Limits, iHeart Radio's Jingle Ball tour and more. Tate is gearing up to embark on her 2022 North American headlining tour in March and continue to the UK/EU immediately following. Her debut album is slated to arrive spring 2022.
Profound, yet buoyantly energetic, Armani White wants to trademark happy hood music. With a nimble flow, quick-fire flexes and a playful nod to a pop superstar, "BILLIE EILISH." is a feel-good theme song laced with irony and a trace of menace. The single has earned TikTok ubiquity and over 260 million global streams since its May release. Last fall, he continued to elevate with Things We Lost In The Fire, a heartfelt EP that addressed personal tragedy with unflinching transparency. In mid-2022, Armani parlayed the momentum of the EP and "BILLIE EILISH." into a deal with Def Jam Records.
The "MTV EMAs" 2022 will broadcast live on MTV in more than 170 countries and on Pluto TV in select territories across the US, Latin America and Europe and Comedy Central in Germany on November 13th. It will be available on Paramount+ and Pluto TV globally beginning November 14th.
