Casting opportunity for the MTV EMA

MTV has announced today that it will be launching a search for more than 2,000 of Scotland’s most enthusiastic music fans to be cast as part of the 2014 MTV EMA, which will be broadcast from The SSE Hydro, Glasgow at 9pm on Sunday 9 November 2014.

From 10:00 – 20:00 on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 November, the MTV EMA team will be at The SSE Hydro and will be looking for fans aged 16+ that love music and want to be on-camera and part of the show!

To be in with a chance of being selected for this once in a life-time experience – which will involve being part of the glittering MTV EMA Red Carpet, in addition to to having close up views of performances by some of the biggest artists in the world including Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, Charlie XCX, Royal Blood and Kiesza (with many more names to be announced) - contestants simply have to prove to a panel of judges – in 60 seconds – why they should be cast.

Taking inspiration from the 2014 MTV EMA show theme ‘Time-Machine’, participants (or groups of friends or family up to a maximum of 10), will have lots of scope to be as creative as they like to impress the judges, who will also be looking for positivity, personality and imagination. 

Joining the MTV EMA casting team on the panel will be Capital Radio DJ Garry Spence.

To be in with a chance of being selected, entrants must:

Attend the MTV EMA casting (either on Saturday 1 November or Sunday 2 November from 10:00 –20:00 CET)
Be over 16 and able to show photo ID (e.g. driver’s licence or passport).
Be dynamic, confident and effervescent - with a clear love of a wide variety of music
Be happy to follow clear instructions
Be happy to be filmed by MTV

… and that’s not the only way music lovers can experience the 2014 MTV EMA…

MTV recently made seated off-camera MTV EMA tickets available to purchase via a public ballot organised in conjunction with Ticketmaster – with more seated tickets to be released in the coming weeks.  

MTV is also soon to announce an additional live music event that will take place simultaneous to the MTV EMA; as well as details of MTV Music Week – a series of music events that will be held in Glasgow during the week of the MTV EMA – the first event will be revealed later this week.

Official media partners for the “2014 MTV EMA” (including Capital Radio and STV) are hosting exclusive competitions offering hundreds of fans the chance to win free tickets to watch the show from the ‘Hyperspace’ an exclusive standing location inside The SSE Hydro.
