Arctic Monkeys, Green Day and The Killers pick up MTV EMA nominations
Justin Timberlake and Macklemore lead this year's MTV European Music Awards (EMA) nominations with five nods each, closely followed by Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke on four.

The 2013 ceremony will take place at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on November 10 hosted by Anchorman character Ron Burgundy (as played by actor Will Ferrell).

Timberlake's five nominations come in the categories of Best Male, Best Live, Best Look, Best US Act and Best Video for his single 'Mirrors'. Meanwhile, Macklemore is up for Best New, Best Hip-Hop, Best Song for 'Thrift Shop', Best US Act and Best World Stage for his performance at MTV World Stage Wireless 2013 in July.

Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus will go head to head for the Best Female title, and both will vie against Robin Thicke for Best Video. Cyrus and Thicke created controversy at the MTV VMAs in August with a sexually explicit dance routine involving twerking and a foam finger.

Black Sabbath and Green Day will compete against Kings Of Leon, Queens Of The Stone Age and The Killers in the Best Rock category, while one of Arctic Monkeys, Fall Out Boy, Franz Ferdinand, Paramore and Thirty Seconds To Mars will be named Best Alternative.

Other artists to pick up nominations include Rihanna, Katy Perry, Eminem, Jay Z, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Green Day, Daft Punk and Icona Pop. Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs, One Direction and Rudimental will battle it out for the title of Best UK & Ireland Act.
