2013 MTV EMAs: ‘Glee’s’ Darren Criss, Cher Lloyd to host stateside companion event

The latest -MTV is going their extra mile at this point to ensure that their Europe Music Awards are more of an international event than ever before. Not only is the show, featuring performances from the likes of The Wanted, Austin Mahone, Jason Derulo, and Fall Out Boy, and is going to be broadcast from Amsterdam throughout Europe on Sunday night, but there will also be a companion show in the United States for viewers who want to also catch a bit of the action.

This show is going to air starting at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, and will be hosted by actor Andrew Schultz from the network along with “Glee” star Darren Criss and a woman in Cher Lloyd who, as a former star of “The X Factor” UK, knows Europe very well. This will add just that much of an extra local flair to the broadcast, as MTV undoubtedly realizes that there are no other awards shows out there that are done like their own.

With all of this being said, we have a hard time thinking that the EMAs are going to be able to surpass another landmark MTV awards show as of late in the VMAs, which featured all sorts of crazy performances including Miley Cyrus making all of conservative America hate her. There’s really no way to top that level of outrage, or at least we think so right now. The EMAs has always been slightly more focused on the music more so than the spectacle, so it will be worth watching to see if it stays this way.

Even before the actual awards show starts at around 3:00 p.m. Eastern, MTV will cut away from their programming briefly in order to bring you a little bit more coverage of what is going on with the EMA planning process, including some highlights from the show’s red carpet and other news. Think of it as just one more way to keep you informed as to what is going on.

Are you planning to check out the show this year, especially now that there is some more America-centered coverage? Be sure to share below.
