Pop Superstars to Perform for 1 Billion MTV Fans

November 14, 2002 05:37 AM ET
By Paul Majendie

BARCELONA (Reuters) - From Eminem to Christina Aguilera, the superstars of pop strut their stuff Thursday night for a worldwide audience of 1 billion fans tuned into the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Barcelona is reliving the glory days of the 1992 Olympics but this time it is pop and not athletic stars who are taking center stage at the Palau Sant Jordi to compete for glory. Even James Bond has come to town to help give out the prizes.

More than 15 million viewers of the music channel have cast their votes in this year's awards. U2, Kylie Minogue, Eminem, Coldplay, Pink, Shakira and Enrique Iglesias are all up for four awards each.

True to the hype that reigns supreme in the pop industry, MTV boasts that the show is "the most widely broadcast music awards event in the world" and MTV Europe boss Brent Hansen revealed: "It has cost us several million pounds."

For that kind of money he has secured one of the most impressive cast lists of the year.

Controversial rapper Eminem, emulating the feat achieved last year by Jennifer Lopez, has topped both the album and movie charts in the United States with his feature film debut "8 Mile" and its soundtrack.

British star Robbie Williams, who has just signed a record $127 million deal with EMI, is now hoping to crack the elusive American market with his new album.

For Britain, the glory days of the Sixties when The Beatles and the Rolling Stones dominated the U.S. charts are long gone. But the British group Coldplay, who are also performing in the MTV show, have made inroads into the Transatlantic market.

Raunchy pop diva Christina Aguilera, veteran star Whitney Houston and Latin heart-throb Enrique Iglesias add some intriguing flavors to the pop cocktail while Bon Jovi, currently riding high in the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, hope their career-long sales could now top 100 million with their latest album.

Hip hop star Wyclef Jean was seduced by the audience potential. "It's a chance to reach one billion people," said the star who hosted the awards ceremony two years ago in Stockholm but now hands over that mantle to rap star Sean "P. Diddy" Combs.

Hansen said the glittering line-up was a refreshing change in an era when manufactured bands are flooding the market.

"We very much want artistic merit to win through," he told Reuters. "A show like this can help to show that we believe in this kind of thing."

Even those giving out the prizes are stars in their own right. They range from FC Barcelona striker Patrick Kluivert to James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan.

Music the Real Winner at MTV Europe Awards

The votes are in and the nominees are counting down the minutes in expectation as the annual MTV Europe Awards get ready to air to the world from Barcelona.

With an audience expected to be in the range of one billion worldwide, the eyes of MTV's global viewers will turn towards Europe on Thursday night as a star-studded selection of performers fill the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona for the music channel's annual European Awards ceremony.

The award ceremony, now in its eighth year, honors stars from around the world for their musical contributions over the past year and relies on the votes of the European viewing public via the Internet or by telephone. In 2001, over two million votes were cast by Europe's MTV generation, which resulted in awards for Gorillaz, Craig David and Limp Bizkit amongst others when the ceremony was held in Frankfurt, Germany.

The number of votes cast this year is over 15 million. It is expected that over eight million Europeans will tune in to see if their nominations make a difference.

Seven artists are in the running for a clean sweep

This year, there is no clear favorite to be the night's biggest winner, with seven artists going into the ceremony with four nominations each. U2, Eminem, Pink, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Coldplay and Kylie Minogue will all be hoping for at least one gong for the sideboard at the end of the evening.

The lucky winners from the 25 categories will be presented with their prestigious awards by celebrities such as James Bond himself, Pierce Brosnan, his latest leading lady, Halle Berry and FC Barcelona's Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert.

It will be the job of host and nominee for Best Hip-Hop Performer Sean 'P.Diddy' Coombs to work the live crowd of over 12,000 people. Enviably, he'll have the help of Robbie Williams, Wyclef Jean, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston amongst many others who will be performing at the awards.

Europe is strongly represented with country categories

Although the awards will have a truly international feel, the inclusion of Europe in the title is underscored by the strong showing of European artists in the main categories as well as 10 country specific categories.

Die Toten Hosen, Herbert Grönemeyer, No Angels, Sportfreunde Stiller and Xavier Naidoo will battle it out in the German category while national musical treasures from countries as varied as Russia and Romania to France and Spain will vie for their own awards.

The diversity on show is good for music, says MTV boss

The diversity of artists being honored at this year's awards ceremony is good news for a music industry that has been dented of late by the global financial downturn. The MTV voting seems to show that consumers are expanding their musical tastes from the narrow market of manufactured pop bands.

MTV Europe boss Brent Hansen told Reuters that "we very much want artistic merit to win through. A show like this can help to show that we believe in this kind of thing."

MTV has earned the right to call itself a global player. Since its premiere in1981, the music channel has branched out with specifically targeted stations in over ten countries across five continents with reception available all over the world. It now offers not only music television but also radio and online services and has recently branched out into film production.
