And the nominees for the 2008 MTV EMAs are…

The MTV Europe Music Awards are coming up, and this time, they’re back with a bang!

Europe’s best artists are coming to you live on November 6, 2008 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool with performers including Kanye West, Beyoncé, Pink, The Killers, Estelle, Duffy, and Take That.

Katy Perry will host the live show while Perez Hilton, the original celebrity blogger, will be the Digital Host of the awards night. Perry has also been nominated in two categories in this year’s Awards – Best New Act and Most Addictive Track (for ‘I Kissed a Girl.’)

But the best part is… Rick Astley will perform!

Get this, not only one song, but two! Holy crap how awesome is that? I can’t wait to see him perform his dance moves from the 80’s.

He will compete against Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, Tokio Hotel and U2 for Best Act Ever.

By the power of the internet we can get Rick the most prestigious award of the night. Let’s give it to Rick!
