The Red Hot Chili Peppers were nominated in four categories for the MTV Europe Music Awards to be hosted by Justin Timberlake in the Danish capital on Nov. 2, the music network said Tuesday.
Madonna, Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Christina Aguilera, Kanye West and Muse had three nominations each.
Timberlake will host the annual show, assisted by Nelly Furtado and Muse, at a convention center and Copenhagen’s City Hall Square, MTV Europe boss Simon Guild told a news conference.
“We will bring the biggest global super stars to town,” Guild said.
MTV Europe opted to split the show between two venues as “an opportunity to bring more people to it,” Guild said.
The Bella Center convention hall on the city outskirts would have 3,000 people while at least 10,000 were expected at the outdoor venue on Copenhagen’s main square.
