Lady Gaga has the most EMA nominations this year, with six nods including Best Female, Best Pop, Best Live and Best Song for ‘Born This Way’.

Katy Perry and Bruno Mars each have four nominations apiece, while Coldplay and Jessie J both have three.

Speaking to MTV about the upcoming ceremony, J said: “I can’t quite believe I’m nominated for three awards. It’s like a dream, I keep pinching myself. And being nominated for Best UK/Ireland Act alongside artists like Adele, Coldplay, Kasabian and Florence is an honour,”
