The 2012 MTV EMAs (also known as the MTV Europe Music Awards) were held in Frankfurt, Germany, on 11 November 2012.[1] This was the fifth time the awards had been held in Germany, and the second time Frankfurt had been the host city.[2] On 17 September the nominees were announced. Rihanna received eight nominations while Katy Perry and Taylor Swift received five, leading the categories.[3]

This year added new regional categories to compete in the Best Worldwide Act, as well as the Best Look category, due to the presence of the same award at the Italian TRL Awards.[4] Taylor Swift, Han Geng, Justin Bieber and One Direction were the biggest winners taking home three awards each.[5][6][7][8]
