The 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards airs Sunday, April 26th @ 7:30 PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

The top five reasons why you should watch the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards are…


Ardy’s Pre-Show Party

The On the Road to the RDMAs Tour comes to a close on Saturday morning (April 25) at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. The final stop is the official kick-off party for the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards and will feature show-stopping performances from RDMA presenters Jacquie Lee, Sweet Suspense and Kelsea Ballerini, Australian pop group Sonus and a special DJ set from Alex Angelo. The event is completely free and open to the public, so if you’re in the Los Angeles area at around 11am on Saturday, make sure to stop by! We can’t wait to see what these budding artists have in store for us!

Jennifer Lopez Accepts Icon Award at 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez to be Honored with Hero Award

Last year, international superstar Shakira received the Hero award at the 2014 RDMAs. This year, its time for the “Feel the Light” singer to be honored as our hero. JLo will be recognized of her fervent and unceasing philanthropic efforts in the U.S. and around the world. We can’t wait to see JLo on the RDMA stage in what will probably be the cutest outfit of the night sharing a powerful message to children and their families watching at home.


Zendaya Switches Roles from Singer to Show Host

For the first time ever, the Radio Disney Music Awards is getting a host! Radio Disney’s Vice President of Programming Phil Guerini stated the following after the announcement, “On stage and off, Zendaya brings intelligence, thoughtfulness and honesty – and an effortless cool factor – to everything she does, all qualities that are appreciated by generations of kids and tweens, and especially their parents.  We join her legion of fans in welcoming her back to the RDMA stage.” Just like Phil Guerini, we feel that Zendaya is the perfect fit for a host. We can’t wait to see what she brings to the show!


R5’s Performance

Ok, so the one performance we’re most excited to see at the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards is R5’s. They have been busy in the recording studio making their new album Sometime Last Night (out July 10), so its been awhile since we’ve seen the band perform live. Let’s hope they sing “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight” because that is THE JAM right now! Also, we would LOVE to see some Rydellington flirting during the bands performance on stage since they confirmed their relationship just last weekend in their documentary. What do you think about that, R5 family? 😉


So FANtastic — Fiercest Fans

One award we are most excited to see be given out at the 2015 RDMAs is the So FANtastic — Fiercest Fans award! It is almost impossible to determine the winner of this category, since all Directoners, Harmonizers, and R5 Family members have been constantly voting for their favorite artist. We’re totally cool with any of these three fandoms winning, we just want to see who came through for their favs!
