Beyonce will be the star of the show later this year, when the MTV Europe Awards come to Liverpool in November.

The American singer will perform at the show, and she could pick up an award too after being nominated in the Ultimate Urban category.

Britney Spears, Coldplay and Duffy are in line to grab the most prizes, with three nominations each.

More than 30 million people across Europe are expected to tune in to watch the show on 6 November.

Katy Perry could also pick up a couple of awards, with her track I Kissed A Girl up for the most addictive track prize.

She'll be up against Coldplay, Duffy, Kid Rock and Pink.

But her battle to be named best new act could be even more exciting, as she'll be taking on Miley Cyrus, Duffy again, One Republic and the Jonas Brothers.

More performers to be announced

The man in charge of putting the awards together, Richard Godfrey, said: "I am confident that when we reveal the final acts to perform, the bill will live up to our promise that the MTV Europe Music Awards will absolutely be the best gig in Europe this year."
