The 5th annual Radio Disney Music Awards were held this weekend on Saturday and aired on Disney Channel on Sunday. It was held in the Microsoft Theatre in LA.
This was apparently the biggest production of the award show ever, which is why it took 5 hosts to present the show (Jenna Ortega, Jordan Fisher, Sofia Carson, Alex Aiono and Kelsea Ballerini).
The world premiere of the ‘Ways to be Wicked’ music video from Descendants 2 was released at the RDMAs, and let’s just say that it lives up to the hype. See my other post for more details.
There were a lot of performances, including a Moana tribute (oh the harmonies in this performance of Jordan Fisher, Alessia Cara and Auli’i Cravalho were on point), Hailee Steinfeld doing a mash-up of ‘Starving’ and her new song ‘Most Girls’ (#fierce) and Sabrina Carpenter performing ‘Thumbs’ (this was amazing as well).
There was also a Britney Spears tribute performed by Sofia Carson, Hailee Steinfeld, Kelsea Ballerini and special guest Jamie Lynn Spears. Britney Spears was honoured with the first ever Radio Disney Icon award.
I thought it was funny when Jake Paul (who won #Trending: Favourite Social Media Star) brought up with big vlogging camera when he accepted his award. Well, he did win social media star, and YouTube is his thing?

You can also watch individual performances which are available on the Radio Disney YouTube page.
Could this be the best RDMA show ever???
The Radio Disney Music Awards is coming up real soon on April the 29th, and will be broadcast on Disney Channel on April 30.
Last month, some of the performers for the award show were announced which included Jordan Fisher (who just released a new song called ‘Always Summer’), Alessia Cara, Kelsea Ballerini and Train.
Recently, more performers have been announced! These performers are: Hailee Steinfeld (let’s hope she performs ‘Starving), Noah Cyrus (who probably will be performing ‘Make Me (Cry)’), Julia Michaels and the current winner of America’s Got Talent Grace VanderWaal.
There is still time to vote so make sure you vote for your faves! Voting closes on April 9, so not very long.
These performers have made me real excited for the RDMA’s, who else is excited?
