The MTV Europe Music Awards 2009 took place in Berlin, Germany at the O2 World [1] and Brandenburg Gate on 5 November 2009. The awards ceremony was presented by Katy Perry for a 2nd consecutive year. It was the fourth time that the MTV Europe Music Awards were hosted in Germany and the second time that they were hosted in Berlin, since the inaugural edition of the MTV Europe Music Awards also took place there. Thus Berlin became the first city to host the event twice.

Nominations for regional awards were announced on 1 September 2009, followed by those of the main awards on September 21, 2009. [2] Pete Wentz was the host for the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards webcast. [3]

Though the MTV EMAs have traditionally been advertised as Europe's premiere music event, few European artists received nominations in key categories.

The 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards logo and promos were designed in-house by MTV World Design Studio in Milan and Buenos Aires with additional input by Swedish graphic design company Kungen & Hertigen. [4]
