MTV EMA (Europe Music Awards) which can be called the European version of the global music festival MTV VMA (Video Music Awards) is held this year on the stage “The SSE Hydro” in Glasgow.

Winners are decided by the audience (voters) and even though it’s named “Europe Music Award” the limitation isn’t set to only Europe. Artists outside Europe will have the chance to be honored in the category “Best Worldwide Act“.

Japan has split their awards into four categories.

  1. Wildcard (The winner will be able to enter Japan Representative)
  2. Japan Representative
  3. Japan-Korea Representative
  4. Best Worldwide Act
To my understanding only the best of the best from the first three categories will be able to fight for the position to enter the Best Worldwide Act.
As of now you’re only able to vote in the first category “Wildcard”. Winner of Wildcard will then be able to fill the empty slot in “Japan Representative” and get the chance to move on to Best Worldwide Act.

Basically, if you’re a fan of BABYMETALMAN WITH A MISSIONSEKAI NO OWARI, KyariPamyuPamyu or Miura Daichi you should join in right now and help your favorite artist pass the first stage. 

The second voting session “Japan Representative” will start September 16. Artist included in that category are ONE OK ROCKE-girlsPerfumeNamie Amuro and the winner of Wildcard.
