The list of MTV European Music Awards nominees is in, and it’s not that hard to guess who’s leading the way. Ariana Grande topped the list by scoring a nod in seven different categories.

The list of major nominees at this year’s ceremony also includes Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, and Shawn Mendes, who received a total of six nods each. They’ll all be competing against Grande in the best song category, and the race will be pretty interesting since it includes some of the biggest hits of the summer.

We’ll have to wait until November 3rd to see who’ll take the crown. the MTV EMAs will be held in Seville, Spain. Last year’s event was hosted by Hailee Steinfeld, but we’re yet to find out who’s going to take on the hosting duties this time around.
