Hailee Steinfeld will be taking center stage at the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards!


The Oscar-nominated actress and platinum-selling artist will be performing AND hosting the upcoming awards show in Bilbao, Spain on November 4th.




“The EMAs are a show where anything can happen,” said the 21-year-old actress in a Facebook Live video. “I can’t wait to host a night filled with incredible artists, performances, some surprises of my own — let’s do this, Bilbao!”


But she’s not just performing and hosting – she’s also up for an award! Hailee is in the running for “Best Pop” category, alongside Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes. (Last year, she took home the award for “Best Push Act”).

Hailee has been making big waves both onscreen and on air. She’s appeared in both Pitch Perfect 2 and 3, and starred in The Edge of Seventeen. Her role on True Grit earned her an Oscar nod. We’ll see her next in the upcoming Transformers spin-off Bumblebee, as well as the Apple original series Dickinson, and she’s also the voice of Gwen Stacy in the animated film Spiderman: Into The Spider-Verse. On the music front, her debut single “Love Myself” became a double platinum hit and was followed up by “Starving”, “Most Girls”, and “Let Me Go” featuring Florida Georgia Line.


“Hailee is a true global superstar renowned for her exceptional talent with a career that spans music, film and TV,” said Viacom’s global head of music and talent, and co-brand head of MTV International, Bruce Gillmer. “We are thrilled to have her as host for this year’s MTV EMAs in Bilbao and can’t wait to see her light up the stage with her incredible energy.”
