by FFE Entertainment News staff
The Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo has been nominated for the MTV Europe Music Awards 2013 (EMA) under the category of Best Southeast Asia Act.
Sarah is the only Filipino to be nominated under the category. She is competing against other talented Southeast Asian artists: Hafiz of Malaysia, the alternative pop band Noah from Indonesia, Olivia Ong from Singapore, Thailand’s rock band Slot Machine, and My Tam from Vietnam.
Sarah’s ‘About the Artist’ page on the MTV website states that, “Sarah’s phenomenal musical talent has earned her recognition not just in her homeland, but all over Asia. She won the title of Best Asian Artist (Philippines) at the 2012 MNet Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong, making her the first Filipino to receive the award.”
Sarah’s friends in showbiz KC Concepcion and Mark Bautista expressed their support of Sarah’s nomination and asked their fans via Twitter to vote for the Popstar Princess:
The winners of the show will be determined through online voting at the MTV EMA’s website.
Other international artists to be nominated on this year’s music award show are Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, One Direction, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift.
While Frankfurt hosted the event in 2012, it’s Amsterdam’s turn this year. The 2013 MTV EMA will be held on Sunday, November 10 and will be shown to over 500 million households worldwide.
