Milan/Bilbao – October 11, 2018 – MTV today confirmed that Academy Award®-nominated actress and recording artist Hailee Steinfeld will host and perform at the “2018 MTV EMAs” airing live globally from Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Spain on Sunday, November 4 at 9:00pm CET.

MTV revealed Steinfeld as host this morning through a Facebook Live sketch that broadcasted across its international platforms.

“The EMAs are a show where anything can happen,” said Steinfeld. “I can’t wait to host a night filled with incredible artists, performances, some surprises of my own – let’s do this, Bilbao!”

“Hailee is a true global superstar renowned for her exceptional talent with a career that spans music, film and TV,” said Bruce Gillmer, global head of music and talent, Viacom and co-brand head, MTV International. “We are thrilled to have her as host for this year’s MTV EMAs in Bilbao and can’t wait to see her light up the stage with her incredible energy.”

The 2017 “Best Push Artist” winner also nabbed a “2018 MTV EMA” nomination for “Best Pop” alongside Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes.

Steinfeld most recently took the MTV stage at “Isle of MTV” in Malta where she performed a dynamic set filled with hits, including her double platinum-certified debut single “Love Myself,” double platinum-selling smash “Starving” featuring Zedd, platinum-selling anthem “Most Girls,” and platinum-certified single, “Let Me Go” featuring Florida Georgia Line. In early 2018, she contributed “Capital Letters” to the Fifty Shades Freed Original Soundtrack, and toured with Katy Perry in the U.K. and throughout the U.S. with Charlie Puth.

In addition to her thriving music career, Steinfeld is an Academy® Award-nominated and critically acclaimed leading actress.  In 2016, she starred in “The Edge of Seventeen” in which she snagged two Critics’ Choice Award nominations and a Golden Globe® nomination.
