“Your 2021 #MTVEMA host has arrived! The one and only icy bae Saweetie will be hosting the show and trust when I say you don’t want to miss it,” MTV EMAs announced on Twitter.
The 28-year-old “My Type” hitmaker will perform her songs “Back to the Streets” and “Best Friend” live at the László Papp Budapest Sports Arena in Budapest, Hungary on November 14, 2021. Maluma, Maneskin, and Kim Petras have also been confirmed to perform on the MTV EMAs stage this year.
“Anything can happen at the MTV EMAs,” Saweetie said. “The EMAs celebrate the universal language of music for the whole world to see and I can’t wait to get out there and perform because I’ve got some surprises of my own!”
“We’re thrilled to have Saweetie host and perform on this year’s EMAs in Budapest,” Bruce Gillmer, the President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events for ViacomCBS, said. “Saweetie is a multi-talented force who will undoubtedly light up the stage on one of music’s biggest nights.”
