Ronan Keating's hair! And other things that happened at the '99 EMAs in Dublin

Nice lipstick Ronan.

THE NOMINATIONS FOR this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards have been revealed today.

All the usual suspects are there: Justin Timberlake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

The ceremony will take place in Amsterdam on 10 November and the nominations were announced by, er, Ron Burgundy.
