MTV said it will release the names of additional performers and presenters at a later date.

"I am so excited to host the 2010 EMAs in the beautiful and sexy city of Madrid!" Longoria said in a statement. "I can't wait to see some fabulous performances and I am so proud that the two most nominated artists this year are two amazing women -- Lady Gaga and Katy Perry -- who are making some of the most exciting music in pop right now."
