AR Rahman to compete at Europe Music Awards


Oscar-winning singer A.R. Rahman has been nominated by  MTV India to represent the country in the Best Worldwide Act Category at the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA), which felicitates best songs and artists of the year. It is reported that he has been nominated for “Nenjukkule” from Mani Ratnam’s Tamil movie “Kadal”

The category will see the participation of artists across genres and regions that have been divided into 10 clusters.

India, Africa and Middle East form one cluster and the nominations will compete with each other. Then, the winner of clusters will battle it out for the final award. MTV has nominated five artists-songs from each country.

“It feels extremely nice to be nominated, especially an award like EMA which recognises musicians on a global scale. I am keeping my fingers crossed … may the lucky one win,” said Rahman in a statement.

MTV EMA will take place on Nov 10 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
