In addition, rock powerhouse OneRepublic will join previously-announced performers Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, DNCE, Lukas Graham, and Zara Larsson on stage as a part of this year’s international night of music.

It’s time for the fans to decide who will win the Best Look award, in partnership with Listerine. The fierce ladies contending for the Best Look award are Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Sia, Bebe Rexha, and Rihanna. Voting for Best Look is taking place entirely on social media. Over the next two weeks, MTV will reveal new ways to vote; the first round of voting goes down on Twitter. MTV has tweeted pics of the nominees and each “like” on those posts counts as a vote, so fans can pick their fave nominee photo and get liking.
The Brooklyn-born songstress will take the Ahoy Rotterdam stage for the first time ever to host one of the globe’s biggest nights in music. Rexha has three nods under her belt for “Best Look,” “Best New” and “Best Push”. “Best Push” references the brand’s ongoing MTV Push initiative that amplifies artists on the rise. She reigned as the MTV Push artist this past June and was previously nominated for “Best Collaboration” at the 2015 MTV EMAs.
