Manuel Turizo is preparing for a special European debut…
The 23-year-old Colombian singer will perform live at this year’s 2023 MTV Europe Music Awards.
But he isn’t the only Latinx singer set to perform at the MTV EMAs.
Puerto Rican superstar Ozuna will also take the stage during the awards show, as will half-Spanish American singer/actor Jared Leto and his Thirty Seconds to Mars band mates.
Turizo, Ozuna and Leto join a roster of A-list performers that includes Jung Kook, The Kid LAROI, Sabrina Carpenter, Coi Leray and Rema.
The show will broadcast live on MTV in more than 150 countries on Sunday November 5 from Paris Nord Villepinte, in addition to being available in multiple international territories on Pluto TV, and on demand on Paramount+.
Other performers set to perform on the show are Anne-Marie, David Guetta and Reneé Rapp.
Most of these artists are also nominees this year. Jung Kook, whose “Seven” (featuring Latto) reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and Rema, whose “Calm Down” (with Selena Gomez) reached No. 3, are each up for three awards. Jung Kook is nominated for best song, best K-Pop and biggest fans. Rema is nominated for best song, best collaboration and best Afrobeats.
Jung Kook has performed on the EMAs as a member of BTS, but this will be his first solo performance on the show. These will also be the first EMAs performances by Leray, Turizo, Ozuna, Rema, Rapp, Carpenter and The Kid LAROI.
Leto’s Thirty Seconds to Mars have won nine EMAs, more than any of this year’s other performers. Guetta, who was born in Paris, the site of this year’s show, has won six.
Also set to appear on the MTV EMA stage as presenters are: former Little Mix member and now solo star Leigh-Anne; actresses Lily Collins and Ashley Park; Fab Morvan of Milli Vanilli, the subject of an eponymous Paramount+ documentary; viral rap star and best push nominee Kaliii; best Nordic act nominee Loreen; and British breakthrough singer and best collaboration, best new and best UK & Ireland act nominee PinkPantheress.
