About this entry

The MTV EMA is one of the biggest global music events of the year, celebrating the hottest artists from around the world. Broadcasted live in 180 countries, the 2019 show took place in Seville, Spain.

The goals of this year’s show were simple: drive as many video views as possible, create international awareness around the show, and launch on new platforms to engage with fans in an exciting way.
