We all know that the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards are going to be awesome. They're going to be BIG, unbelievable, insane, magical -- wondertastic. (I know that last one isn't a real word, but it's true!) From the show to the special on the Disney Channel, to all of the scheduled performers, to my Duck Tape dress (I'll get to that later) -- on April 26th, your mind will be blown.
As one half of the morning show, "Morgan & Maddy in the Morning" on Radio Disney, I know all of the juicy details about the RDMAs. Let me get you up to speed.
Let's start with the show itself. The 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards is kids and families' biggest awards show for music. It celebrates music and the year's favorite artists as voted by us -- the fans. Seeing our favorite stars accept their Ardys is going to be life-changing in itself, but it wouldn't be the Radio Disney Music Awards without performances. Here's a rundown of the artists we have scheduled to perform SO FAR.
R5, who's currently touring the globe and killing it on their Louder Tour. Fifth Harmony, the girls who not only have amazing voices and hair-bows, but are also opening for Demi Lovato on her Neon Lights Tour. Zendaya, whose song, "Replay" just went platinum, and Becky G, our N.B.T. featured artist that is a 100 percent better rapper than I am and works with amazing artists like Cody Simpson and Pitbull. Do I have your attention now? Of course I do.
Speaking of Disney.com/RDMA (good segue, Maddy, good segue), that is just one of the places you can go to vote. You can also Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and text your vote by texting RDMA to DISNEY (347639). Voting begins this Friday, February 28th and ends on Sunday, April 6th. I REPEAT, VOTING BEGINS THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28th! Make sure your voice is heard. At this point, I'm sure you're dying to know what I'll be wearing to the RDMAs. Wait no longer, I'll divulge.
It's always been a dream of mine to walk the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards in a custom dress made of Duck Tape. OK, so I've never actually had that dream, but now that it's really happening, it seems like a dream come true! However, before this dream becomes reality, a lot of work has to happen. From sketching and designing, to choosing a color palate, to multiple fittings to make sure the dress fits, all I can say is I'm glad that I get to wear it and I don't have to make it. If they asked me to make it, I would probably end up looking like a Duck Tape burrito.
From what I've seen so far, the dress is going to be extravagant, and I'm so excited to see the final product.
Let's recap. The 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards are happening on Saturday, April 26th at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. LIVE. R5, Fifth Harmony, Zendaya, Becky G and more are performing and it's going to rock. I will also be there wearing a dress made of Duck Tape and I am oh-so excited about it.
Starting this Friday, February 28th, you can vote for your favorite music and artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, texting RDMA to DISNEY or by visiting Disney.com/RDMA. If you would like to be at the show, tickets are available now and I would love to see you. Like I said, the 2014 Radio Disney Music awards are going to be WONDERIFIC. That may not be a real word, but it makes total sense now, right?
