The MTV European Music Awards presentation, aka the EMAs, will get under way Sunday at 2 p.m. EST from Glasgow, Scotland, but the show will be delayed in the U.S. until 7 p.m. EST, according to the Latin Times. Nicki Minaj will host the event that will feature performances by Ariana Grande, Enrique Iglesias, Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran and Charli XCX.

MTV chose Glasgow to host the 20th anniversary of the EMAs because of its diverse local music scene, the music-television channel said in a statement. “And the EMA celebrates international superstars, local favorites from all corners of the world, and the fans around the globe who make it all possible.”
However, fans who wanted to see Scottish DJ Calvin Harris on the show Sunday show will be disappointed. The record producer reportedly had to pull out because of health issues.
“It’s with deep regret that Calvin Harris will not be able to perform at the 2014 MTV EMAs this weekend due to illness,” an MTV representative told Us Weekly. “He sends his sincere apologies to all his fans.”
The official Facebook page for the EMAs confirmed Harris’ ailment. “We have some really sad news,” the site said. “Calvin Harris has taken ill and will not be able to perform at tomorrow’s show. He sends his sincere apologies. Get well soon, Calvin!”
Harris also reportedly tweeted about his illness. “No EMAs for me this weekend,” he apparently wrote, although the tweet no longer appears on his page. “Got some heart problems. Heading home to see if it can be fixed x.”
