It certainly takes a fair bit to propel someone to stan a pop star, and these nominees are the ones who capture the most attention and devotion from followers.
They're also a big reason why these stars are able to do what they do, and all of this is recognized in the MTV EMA Biggest Fans category.
These pop stars inspire legions of fans into action, and they'll need your help from now until November 4: to vote for your favourite nominee by blasting their name on your socials! Just use the respective nominee hashtag on Twitter and Instagram for your vote to qualify.
But what if you want your vote to mean something more than a social post? We also have the MTV EMA app, and it has an AR creation feature that will allow you to vote for your nominee with something truly unique.
Here are your nominees with their respective hashtags!
The mobilization of the BTS ARMY was unlike anything we've seen from a K-pop act in recent memory — and they certainly have a cause for celebration this year, with the group making strides across the world and finding success on their own terms. Among their ranks, they can also count Jimmy Fallon and Tyra Banks.
