Attention ARMYs! Jungkook of K-pop boy group BTS is set to make his debut as a solo performer at the 2023 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) in Paris. 

On Wednesday, October 18, MTV EMAs unveiled its list of performers. The awarding ceremony is set for November 5. 

Aside from Jungkook, other confirmed performers include Anne Marie, and Sabrina Carpenter. Meanwhile, The Kid Laroi, David Guetta, and Thirty Second to Mars are also confirmed to take the stage.

For the 2023 MTV EMAs, Jungkook is nominated in three categories: Best Song for Seven,” Best K-pop and Biggest Fans. Which makes him the most nominated K-pop soloist for the awarding ceremony. 

As of writing, the BTS member is the only confirmed K-pop act that will perform in the ceremony. 

Although there’s no other details about Jungkook’s performance yet, fans are already getting hyped up on the possible numbers he’ll prepare for the show. Especially since the awarding ceremony will come days after the official release of Jungkook’s solo debut album Golden. 

Since “Seven” is already nominated, ARMYs are expecting that it will be part of his list. But there’s also a huge chance that Jungkook will perform some of his solo tracks for the first time in MTV EMAs. Some eagle-eyed fans are even hypothesizing that Jungkook and The Kid Laroi will share the stage for MTV EMAs as the two have recently announced that they’re collaborating. 

Notably, the K-pop star collaborated with several big names from Hollywood for his 11-track album. Among those who have songwriting and producing credits in some of the songs for Golden are Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, David Stewart, DJ Snake, and Major Lazer.
