I'm going to the EMAs!

A YOU journalist gets the opportunity of a lifetime - to go the the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam.

It’s the kind of opportunity every entertainment journalist wants: getting to attend an international awards ceremony!

My opportunity came along rather unexpectedly. After putting in a request months ago, I randomly got a phone call asking if I’d be interested in attending the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam on Sunday. Hmmm, it took me a while five seconds to scream, ‘hells yes’.

And so the journey began. Every day the group going (I’m flying with Highveld’s Anele Mdoda and 5fm’s Rob Forbes) has been inundated with updates. ‘Katy Perry to host the EMA’s’, ‘Miley Cyrus and Snoop will perform’, ‘The Killers have been added to the line-up.’ Seriously, the list goes on.

Now, with just a few hours until I fly, I’m running around like a chicken without a head. Working on a weekly, life goes on. Deadlines still have to be met, and packing really hasn’t been a priority. In fact, I’ve been at functions every night this week. So saying that life is a little cray is an understatement.

Although it’s in those craziest haphazard moments that you truly get the best content and deliver the best possible stories. So, to Amsterdam, the EMAs and MTV, let’s go!
