Katy Perry to Perform at MTV EMAs

 

Katy Perry is heading to Amsterdam.

The pop princess will perform her next single, "Unconditionally," live at the 2013 MTV EMA Awards in the Dutch capital, airing in the U.S. on Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Perry is no stranger to the EMA stage, with three EMA awards to her name, and she hosted the ceremony in 2008 and 2009. She previously performed three years in a row, from 2008 to 2010, and served as a presenter in 2011.

"I'm so excited to return to the EMA stage!" Perry said in a statement. "I have tailor-made a performance of a brand new song from PRISM to share with fans from around the world."

Serving as a special correspondent during the broadcast, Will Ferrell will appear in character as Anchorman 2's Ron Burgundy, and will provide live updates throughout the show. Ferrell, as Burgundy, previously hosted the 2013 EMA nomination special last month.

Much like August's MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the EMA nominations list with five apiece, while Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke are each up for four awards. Among the other nominees are Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Daft Punk, Icona Pop, One Direction, Rihanna, Imagine Dragons, Eminem, Jay Z, Paramore, Avicii, Iggy Azalea and more.

Outside the U.S., the EMAs will air live on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 9 p.m. ET.
