Before the big show, the radio station hosted an epic pre-party outside the BB&T Center with performances from this year’s hottest rising stars, including Jake Miller, Loud Luxury, Madison Beer, Logan Henderson, lovely the band, and more. It was the best way to get everyone pumped for the big event inside the arena!
Every seat inside South Florida’s BB&T Center was taken with eager fans ready to sing along to Shawn Mendes‘ “Lost In Japan,” Bebe Rexha‘s “I’m A Mess,” Khalid‘s “Location,” Calvin Harris‘ “One Kiss,” and Bazzi‘s “Mine.” Each performer showed why they deserved to be on the stage performing in front of thousands as their true talent shined during each song.
In between all of the incredible music, Z100’s Elvis Duran and duo Jack & Jack took the stage for a heartfelt tribute to the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who were in attendance. The tribute reminded us that our voices need to be heard now more than ever and that we can truly make a difference when it comes to gun control.
To close out the night, EDM powerhouse Marshmello mixed some of his biggest hits, ending his set with confetti flying through the air for his summer smash “Happier.”
