It’s award season, and for my kiddos, that means a family night with the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards on Sunday, April 30, 2017.
The awards will be handed out at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles this year.
While there will be so many celebrities, the Radio Disney Music Awards are voted on by the only people who matter, the fans. It’s what my kiddos love MOST about this awards show. They have a voice!
Sure. There are trophies, and a little thing called the “Golden Mickey” trophy (Ardy).
Some of the most popular singers and songwriters will take the stage between award presentations. The singers Jordan Fisher, Kelsea Ballerini and Sofia Carson, the actress Jenna Ortega and Radio Disney’s host Alex Aiono were chosen through a Twitter poll by fans.
This is not to say the awards themselves aren’t pretty spectacular. It’s an exciting lineup of award nominees. Check them out and cast your vote now to help your favorite claim the coveted ARDY in the following categories:
