Back in February, Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, announced that the EMAs would be returning to the capital for the first time since 1996, with the awards part of his ongoing "London Is Open" campaign focusing on arts, business, entertainment and culture.

The red carpet for the star-studded affair begins at 2:00pm ET, with the awards show kicking off promptly at 3:00pm ET.

Much to the delight of hip-hop fans, it was recently announced that Eminem will be in the building and will take to the stage to perform his new track, "Walk On Water." While there's no official word regarding if Beyoncé will join Em on stage or not, fans have been treated to a lengthy list of already-confirmed performers.

Travis Scott, French Montana, Liam Payne (formerly of One Direction), Clean Bandit (with appearances from Zara Larsson, Sean Paul, Anne-Marie and Julia Michaels), The Killers, Stormzy, Kesha, Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato and Camila Cabello have all been announced as scheduled performers.

Taylor Swift leads the nominations this year with six, with the singer to compete against Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes for Best New Artist, among others. Bruno Mars, Drake, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Eminem, ZAYN, Khalid, U2, Future, Post Malone and more also received nominations this year.

The EMAs will be available to watch in a variety of ways, with multiple streaming options available through the newly launched MTV Play or MTV EMA apps, online and social media for those without cable. MTVEMA.com will begin live-streaming with its Red Carpet Show at 2pm ET, with the main show following soon thereafter.
