“We’re excited to host this year’s MTV EMAs and celebrate the best musicians and performances from around the world,” said the adorable duo.
The pop star and director were first linked in 2018 but dating rumors didn’t hit until April 2021 — they’ve been going strong ever since, with claims even swirling in August that the couple had secretly married!
The ‘Let You Love Me’ singer previously hosted the award show at London’s Wembley Arena in 2017, where she even took home the Power of Music Award.
Rita gushed over the chance to return to the EMA stage, saying: “I’m thrilled to be back hosting, and sharing the stage with Taika makes it even more special.”
“We’ve got it all at this year’s EMAs, fun surprises, gorgeous fashion, comedy and most of all amazing music! We can’t wait to share these moments with audiences,” he continued.
Looks like they put on quite a show for us!
Rita, Taika and the official EMS Instagram page all shared a promotional video introducing the married couple as the new hosts.
The hilarious clip shows the husband and wife’s witty repartee that we’re sure they’ll bring to the awards show, which will be broadcast live in over 170 countries on November 13!
