Check your diary for October 19th, because that’s officially one date you’ll want to keep free.
The BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards line-up has been announced this morning and it is HUGE. We’re talking 5 Seconds of Summer, The Vamps, Ariana Grande and many more taking the stage at London’s SSE Arena in Wembley. You hear that sound like a tea kettle about to rocket into space? That’s how excited we now are.
The full line-up was announced this morning by Nick Grimshaw on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, and is set to include 5 Seconds of Summer, The Vamps, Ariana Grande, Rixton, Ella Henderson and Labrinth. The star studded event will once again be hosted by Grimmy himself and Rita Ora.
Rita had this to say about the show: “I can’t wait to get involved and join my friend Grimmy on stage to co-host the Radio 1 Teen Awards – yes, we’re going to make some noise!”
The annual event, now in its fifth year, will see it hand out awards to the year’s best music, online, sport and entertainment stars as voted for by BBC Radio 1 listeners.
However it’s not just the celebs who are getting the gongs (it is the TEEN Awards after all), the show will also recognise the efforts of three very special ‘Teen Heroes’ nominated by listeners and chosen by a panel of celebs, Radio 1 DJs, journalists and experts from youth organisations.
Want to be a part of all the action? Tickets for the show will be available from 6:30pm on Wednesday 1st October and will cost £10 plus booking fees. Also you’ve got to be a teen to attend: 14-17 year olds ONLY.
If you can’t make it there live, don’t worry! The whole event will be available to watch via live steam on bbc.co.uk/radio1 and on BBC Red Button so you can join us in staring at 5 Seconds of Summer for an uncomfortably long amounts of time no matter what. Excuse us while we go celebrate:
