‘I still remember how much fun my first EMAs was in Frankfurt in 2012, when I performed RIP I can’t wait to get back on the stage to host and perform’, she said.

Discussing if she’d get political during the show, she said: ‘We plan to bring a form of spirit and hope into a music awards show, especially being in London. There are a lot of things that have happened this year, and it’s really important to just be proud of where you are from.’
