Taylor Swift is leading the MTV EMAs 2017 shortlist with six nominations in total.

The pop star recently returned with her comeback single ‘Look What You Made Me Do‘ nearly three years after releasing her last album ‘1989‘.

Among the awards she could collect at the ceremony, which takes place at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on November 12, are Best Video, Best Artist, Best Pop and Best Look. She could also take home trophies for Best US Act and Biggest Fans.

Elsewhere, Shawn Mendes is up for five awards, while Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran both follow behind with four nominations.

This year’s host, Rita Ora, is up for the Best Look award, alongside Swift, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik.
