Carly Rae tells MTV, "This will be my first time at the MTV EMA, and I am beyond thrilled -- feeling like a lucky duck for the nominations and the chance to perform. Now the only concern is 'What to wear?!'"

The guys in fun. added, "It's so incredible that we'll be playing at the MTV EMAs, when not that long ago not many people knew who we were in Europe! It just feels like that dream most people don't get to experience."

The MTV EMAs, which will be handed out in Frankfurt, Germany, will air November 11 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on MTV 2. Rihanna is the leading nominee with six nods, while Taylor Swift has five.  Justin Bieber and Katy Perry each have four.
