Just over two weeks before MTV EMAs were set to take place on Sunday, Nov. 5, in Paris, Paramount announced on Thursday (Oct. 19) that the show has been canceled “given the volatility of world events.” This marks the first time the show has been canceled since it was launched in 1994. Even during the pandemic, the show went on as scheduled.


A company spokesperson said in a statement: “Given the volatility of world events, we have decided not to move forward with the 2023 MTV EMAs out of an abundance of caution for the thousands of employees, crew members, artists, fans and partners who travel from all corners of the world to bring the show to life. The MTV EMAs are an annual celebration of global music. As we watch the devastating events in Israel and Gaza continue to unfold, this does not feel like a moment for a global celebration. With thousands of lives already lost, it is a moment of mourning. We look forward to hosting the MTV EMAs again in November of 2024
