Dua Lipa, Niall Horan Liam Gallagher and Ariana Grande attend tonight’s MTV Europe Music Awards

Dua Lipa, Ava Max and former One Direction star Niall Horan will grace the stage during the annual ceremony, this year held in Seville, Spain.

The show will also feature performances by the likes of Halsey, Mabel and Spanish singer Rosalia.

Singer Ariana Grande is expected to be among the big winners at Sunday night’s star-studded MTV Europe Music Awards.

She is nominated seven times, including for the coveted best artist gong, as well as for best video for her hit song Thank You, Next.

But she faces stiff competition from newcomers Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish, who follow with six nominations each, while Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin takes five, including best artist.

This year’s edition will be hosted by US singer and actress Becky G, who takes over from last year’s host Hailee Steinfeld.

She will use the platform to perform Como No, her collaboration with Akon, live for the first time.

She joins the event’s star-studded list of former hosts, including Sir Tom Jones, Robbie Williams and Katy Perry.

Joining Green Day on the stage performing will be Dua Lipa, Halsey, Rosalía, Niall Horan, Akon, Ava Max, Mabel and NCT 127 too.

Liam Gallagher will also make an appearance to collect the inaugural rock icon award.

The ex-Oasis rocker is expected to perform one song from his new album Why Me? Why Not and one by his former band.
