Andrea Bocelli is to perform at the MTV EMAs.

The 57-year-old Italian singer will take to the stage at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan this Sunday (25.10.15) for his first ever appearance at the awards show.

Bocelli will perform one solo track and will also duet with Tori Kelly in what promises to be one of the most memorable collaborations in MTV Europe Music Awards history.

Revealing his excitement ahead of the ceremony, Bocelli - who releases his new album 'Cinema' on October 23 - said: ''I'm pleased and excited to perform at a location and event that is unexpected for me, and to share the overwhelming and contagious energy of so many young people from all around the world. I will be preparing a nice surprise from outside of my usual repertoire together with the beautiful and talented Tori.''

The EMAs will be hosted by Ed Sheeran and Ruby Rose and other performers on the night include Pharrell Williams, Ellie Goulding, Jason Derulo, James Bay, Jess Glynne and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Voting for all award categories is open on until October 24.
