2013 mtv europe music awards to feature best canada act category

The MTV Europe Music Awards are gearing up for another show set to rock the streets of Amsterdam this November and we couldn’t be more excited about it! This year Canada will shine bright (not that we don’t already) with a special Category, Best Canada Act!

It’s no surprise Canadian artists have been giving today’s top performs a reason to sweat — Toronto born rapper Drake currently sits at number 8 (and moving up) on Billboard’s Hot 100, Tegan & Sara just landed their track ‘Closer‘ on the American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest and Justin Bieber already has four EMA nods!

This won’t be the first year Canada takes home EMA hardware. Last year Carly Rae Jepsen took home two EMAs, one for Best Push and the other for Best Song, leaving Justin Bieber to rep the guys claiming the award for Best Male.

Check out the full list of nominees below and tell us in the comments who you think will take home an award at the 2013 EMAs!
