BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards 2017 line-up announced

The BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards are back again this year for another afternoon of exciting musical performances, surprise guests and of course recognition of some of our unsung teen heroes.

This year’s line-up has just been announced, and although being a little bias it might be our favourite to date. Now taking to the stage with his solo material Liam Payne will make his first appearance at SSE Wembley Arena on October 22nd. Liam when speaking to BBC said of the event “I’m looking forward to performing my new songs and returning to the stage – but as a solo artist this time.”. 

Alongside him will be Rita Ora usually in attendance at the show co-presenting with close pal Nick Grimshaw, but instead, this year will be taking the stage solo alongside taking on her usual presenting duties.Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello is also scheduled to perform at the much-loved event along with fellow Teen Awards newbie Dua Lipa who is up for Best British Solo Act in this year’s awards who co-hosted the awards with Nick Grimshaw at the 2016 event.

Teen Awards regulars The Vamps are back after winning Best British Group last year and hope to maintain their title. With this being their third time performing at the event the quartet shared their love of the event “The Teen Awards is always a great time to celebrate incredible young individuals and we are extremely proud to be a part of such an important celebration.”

For the full list of awards and nominations head here.

Tickets for the Teen Awards 2017 go on sale at 9 am on Friday 25th August and the event (as every year) is open solely to 14-17 year-olds only. If like us you’re too old to head to the live show, never fear it’ll be live on BBC Radio 1 and also on the iPlayer, YouTube and Radio 1 website.

Unashamedly in love with pop music and boybands. I'm always looking for new artists to check out, so send them my way and you might be able to be smug knowing you helped me find a new favourite band. You'll probably say I have long hair, most people do.
