Dalton Harris Winning The X Factor / Chosen by Kelly McFarland (CelebMix Editor)

“Dalton Harris winning the X Factor was a great moment. From his first audition to his performance of his winners single. He captured the nation’s heart, with his humble attitude. It was lovely to watch him grow week on week and see his confidence build with the help of his mentor and judge Louis Tomlinson.”

John Bishop On The Jonathan Ross Show Talking About Winning The LGBT ‘Ally Of The Year’ Award / Chosen by Jonathan Currinn (CelebMix Editor)

“This made me cry, and it still brings tears to my eyes whenever I watch this. John Bishop says the exact right thing when talking about winning this LGBT ‘Ally Of The Year’ award, proving that he deserved to win. It’s rarely that one sentence speaks to me, but this one sentence is truly unforgettable, he said: ‘Just love them for who they are and allow them to feel safe, and then, those little digs, and the little knocks, and the little abuse that they subtly get, that we don’t know about, perhaps won’t penetrate as deep.’ Simply, wow!”

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Wedding / Chosen by Katrina Rees (CelebMix Editor)

“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was one of the most talked about moments from the year and quite rightly so. The whole ceremony was so beautiful and it was lovely to see elements of Meghan’s influence, such as the address by Reverend Michael Curry and the Kingdom Choir singing ‘Stand By Me’, being intertwined with traditional royal wedding protocol. The whole event moved me to tears and I couldn’t have been happier for the gorgeous couple.”

Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas’ Wedding / Chosen by Michele Mendez (CelebMix Editor)

“The wedding between Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas was definitely one of the celebrity highlights from this year. They had the wedding of everyone’s dreams! Although we only saw a snippet from their social medias’, we can see that it was gorgeous. What I loved about their wedding is that they incorporated aspects of both their cultures. Like, many Indian weddings go, there were several ceremonies, each stunning in its own way. Priyanka and Nick look incredibly happy, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness!”

Mike Shinoda’s Tribute To Chester Bennington At Reading Festival / Chosen by Charlotte Freeman-Coates (CelebMix Writer)

“Chester Bennington’s death impacted many people in different ways which was shown by the emotion when Mike Shinoda took the stage at Reading Festival the sing ‘In The End’ in tribute to Chester. From the crowd reaction to the sentiment and how much it clearly also meant to Mike, for me, this is easily my favourite celebrity moment of the year.”

Anna Kendrick Forgetting She Was In Twilight / Chosen by Sofia Esposito (CelebMix Writer)

“This was hilarious to see unfold on twitter and soon became a trending moment!”

Tom Parker & Kelsey Hardwick’s Wedding / Chosen by Lynn Macgillivray (CelebMix Writer)

“I am a massive fan of The Wanted and any fan of the band has watched the romance blossom between Tom and Kelsey over the years. They are made for each other and their wedding day was just beautiful – everything I thought it would be and more for such a wonderful couple. I am so happy for them. Also, we got a mini The Wanted reunion with Jay and Max singing Heart Vacancy alongside Tom on the night.”

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth’s Wedding / Chosen by Evelin Mercedes (CelebMix Writer)

“Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth getting married surprised me because they’ve been dating for 10 years and it’s so incredible how they finally made it happen. They have been through many ups and downs and it was nice to see that they married in a small ceremony. That’s real love!”

Louis Tomlinson Announces As A Judge On The X Factor / Chosen by Azra (CelebMix Writer)

“Could this be the very best idea that the producers of The X Factor have ever had? Possibly. Ever since seeing him as a guest judge on America’s Got Talent, I’ve been longing to witness Louis Tomlinson as a full-time judge. Coming from the talent show himself, he knows exactly how to deal with the contestants, and seeing the nation fall in love with him was an added bonus. It’s inspired me to make a folder on my laptop with screenshots from Twitter of people admiring Louis as a judge.”

Harry Redknapp Winning I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! / Chosen by Niki Smith (CelebMix Writer)

“Harry Redknapp went into the jungle with even his closest friends believing he’d only last 3 days. But he proved, to everyone that doubted him, wrong and survived the whole time. He may have hated rats and struggled with missing his beloved wife Sandra, but he took the crown. I loved seeing that true love still exists and couldn’t help laughing every time he spoke about jam roly polys. Since he left the jungle he’s been inundated with companies sending him his beloved dessert so he recently took them down to the homeless shelter nearest me and served them up to those less fortunate!”

Dua Lipa Accepting ‘British Breakthrough Act’ With Her Siblings At The Brit Awards / Chosen by Toby Bryant (CelebMix Writer)

“Dua Lipa may have looked in disbelief when announced as the BRIT’s ‘British Breakthrough Act’ for 2018, but having churned out hit after hit over the past two years, it was well deserved. Lipa headed onstage to collect the award with siblings Rina and Gjin. Lipa said, “My brother and sister probably think I’m crazy that I brought them on stage with me […] at the bottom of my album I thanked everyone and told them to believe in magic because it’s real and this is the closest I’ve come to it – I wanted them to experience it first hand. I love you.” What a moment.”

Nicki Minaj & Little Mix Performing “Woman Like Me” At The MTV EMAs / Chosen by Nicola Craig (CelebMix Writer)

“Nicki Minaj and Little Mix teaming up for ‘Woman Like Me’ is one of those collaborations we’ve been waiting ages to happen and when it did it really was worth the wait. When they teamed up together at the MTV EMAs it was even more incredible than we first imagined, slick choreography saw Perrie losing her cool at getting to rest on Nicki’s derrière (we feel you Perrie!) and reminding us just how normal Little Mix actually are. The excitement from both artists and fans worldwide in regards to this collaboration made this one of the best celebrity moments of the year for many reasons.”

Kirstin Maldonado Performing As Part Of The Kinky Boots Cast On Broadway / Chosen by Kay Simpson (CelebMix Writer)

“Pentatonix’s Kirstin Maldonado brings her spectacular and phenomenal acting and singing skills to the New York stages as she plays, Lauren in Kinky Boots, staring is Broadway has always been a dream for the young singer and seeing on social media the joy and happiness fill up the star was just a joy to behold.”

Jennifer Garner’s Realization At The Oscars / Chosen by Ashley Bulayo (CelebMix Writer)

“I’ll never forget when Jennifer Garner’s five-second video went viral after she was clapping during the Oscar’s and somehow realized something in the middle of it all. It was the most hilarious and relatable thing ever!”

Kylie Jenner Announcing The Birth Of Stormie And Posting The YouTube Video “To Our Daughter” / Chosen By Ashley Gale (CelebMix Writer)

“I think we all knew Kylie was pregnant, but we didn’t really have a definite answer. When she released the video, ‘to our daughter’ I thought it was so cute and I definitely respect her decision for keeping her pregnancy private.”

Michael Clifford Fostering Kittens / Chosen by Georgia Brown (CelebMix Writer)

“Michael Clifford fostering kittens is my favourite 2018 celebrity moment because its two of my favourite things, Michael Clifford and cats! But in all seriousness, Michael fostering kittens came at an odd point in my own life because he shared the news about a week after my cat of 21 years passed away. I was still upset about losing my own cat but knowing that there are people out there like Michael, who’re fostering kittens or cats, or adopting them and giving them a forever home, really warmed my heart.”

Justin Timberlake & Shawn Mendes Perform Together At iHeart Radio Music Festival / Chosen by Brittany Sims (CelebMix Writer)

“Shawn Mendes and Justin Timberlake are my two fave people. I freaked out when they dueted. I hope they make a song together.”
