The 2017 MTV EMA’s are all going down in London on Sunday November 12 (Monday November 13 in Australia), and today we’ve finally got to see the list of nominees!

Leading the pack with six nominations is Taylor Swift, whose controversial return with Look What You Made Me Do may not have actually been that controversial given it has been nominated for Best Video. Shawn Mendes is another leader in the pack with four nominations, all of which go head to head with our girl Tay Tay.

Best New is the most interesting category, with Dua Lipa going head to head against Julia MichaelsKhalidKyle and Rag n’ Bone Man. Each of the nominated artists in the best new category have had HUGE years, so this one is really anyone’s game (but our vote goes strongly towards Dua Lipa whose absolute bop New Rules has been our anthem for dealing with boys ever since it was released).

But even despite the huge star power of the nominees, there’s a few glaring omissions… Especially in the Rock and Alternative categories. Where is Paramore? They’ve had a HUGE year with the release of their critically acclaimed album After Laughter, and absolute bop Hard Times. This isn’t the first time that MTV has snubbed Paramore this year, having also not included them in the nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year.
