The 2012 MTV EMA Host Will Be Heidi Klum!

German supermodel Heidi Klum will host the 2012 MTV EMA!

Guys! So you know this little thing called the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards? You know, that excuse to celebrate our Europhile-ness AND everyone’s chance to honor their favorite music stars on an international level? (We like to think big around here.) Well anyway, we just found out something VITAL: This year’s EMA host will be none other than German top model, fashion heavy hitter, and “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum! And how fitting, too, since this year’s awards will be held in Frankfurt, Germany. Don’t you love it when everything comes together so serendipitously? Please excuse us while we picture Klum walking onstage in (fashionable) lederhosen eating a giant pretzel and a schnitzel sandwich. And holding a beer. Anyway..

Read up on the 2012 MTV EMA nominees after the jump.

And as if you need another reason to watch, we’ll also go ahead and remind you that this year’s EMA nominees include Rihanna and Taylor Swift (both ladies topped the nom list with six and five nods, respectively), Justin Bieber and Katy Perry (each grabbed four EMA nominations apiece), M.I.A., Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Calvin Harris, and Psy (all nominated for Best Video). Also, Rita Ora, fun., One Direction, Lana Del Rey, and Carly Rae Jepsen are all up for Best New. You can EVEN vote in select EMA categories, including Best New, Best Live, and Biggest Fan by visiting mtvema.com or m.mtvema.com on your phone. Sound good? Oh, and if you need us, we’ll be over here preparing schnitzel sandwiches in celebration of Heidi Klum. Make it work!

The 19th annual MTV EMA will broadcast live on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 9 p.m. CET from Frankfurt’s historic Festhalle on MTV channels around the world. If you’re in America, and you probably are, watch the show that night at 11 p.m. on MTV2.
