Wearing a red suit and sporting his latest peroxide blonde do, the singer is nominated for six awards.

Singer Ed Sheeran and model Ruby Rose will host the EMAs, which promises an intriguing battle between Taylor Swift, who has nine nominations, and Bieber who has six nods.

A good deal of anticipation surrounds Bieber's forthcoming performance because he broke down in tears at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in August.

The Canadian pop star explained why he had been so overwhelmed on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show: "I just wasn't expecting them to support me in the way they did. Last time I was at an awards show, I was booed."

After confirming his appearance at the EMAs, Bieber said: "I'm excited to share this performance and this new material with my fans around the world. The EMAs are always a blast. I'm glad to be back and it's going to be fun".

The star is due to release his new album Purpose on November 13, the same date as One Direction's much-anticipated fifth studio album, Made In The AM.

American girl band Fifth Harmony opened the red carpet in style as they sang and danced down the red carpet performing their hit Worth It.

"I would love to say yes, but I've not started yet, I'm trying to find some time," Bay told the Press Association.

Singer Jason Derulo, who is performing at the event, said fans could look forward to a high energy, futuristic performance with a "shock" in the middle.

The Want To Want Me singer quaffed a glass of whisky in one hand, and held a cigar in the other, as he made his way down the red carpet.

New Romantic favourites Duran Duran will receive the first ever MTV Video Visionary Award.

The chart-topping 1980s band will be given the honour for their strong visual presence, and for influencing a generation of musicians with some of the best pioneering music videos of all time.
