Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars will perform his new single at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) next month.

The 31-year-old singer - who has previously performed twice at the EMAs in 2011 and 2013 - is the first act to be announced as a performer at the glitzy awards ceremony taking place on November 6 in Rotterdam, Holland.

Speaking to MTVEMA.com, the show's executive producer Bruce Gilmer said: "We're thrilled to announce Bruno's return to EMAs and can't imagine a more appropriate way to jump start our biggest night of the year. Many more surprises to follow!"

The pop megastar will be taking to the stage to perform his brand new single '24K Magic' - which was released last Friday (07.10.16) - in what will be his first live global performance of any of the songs from his forthcoming album of the same name.

And the 'Just the Way You Are' hitmaker is no stranger to the EMAs either, as on top of having performed twice before, he's also picked up three gongs - Best New Act and Best Push in 2011, and Best Song in 2013 - and been nominated for a total of 11 trophies.

This year, the star has failed to bag himself a nomination, with the likes of Beyoncé and Justin Bieber dominating the categories with a whopping five nominations each. The two stars will go head-to-head in the battle for the Biggest Fans Award, which the 22-year-old star won last year.

Coldplay and Adele are both up for four awards each, although neither of them will take home the award for Best Act in the UK and Ireland, as pop trio Years & Years have already been announced as the recipients.

The MTV EMAs will be broadcast live from Rotterdam on November 6.
