Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) chose Belfast due to "the city’s music scene and nightlife".

"Hosting the 2011 MTV EMAs in the UK is a tremendous opportunity to showcase the UK across a globe spanning portfolio of TV networks and websites serving in excess of 160 countries, while reinforcing our commitment to production in the UK," said VIMN UK and Ireland executive vice president and managing director David Lynn.

MTV also announced plans to host a series of local events around Belfast in the lead up to the EMAs.

The last time the EMAs visited the UK was when it took place at the ACC Liverpool in 2008.
