Radio Disney has lined up five fan-favorite stars across music and TV to host the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. Grammy Award nominee Kelsea Ballerini, Broadway's "Hamilton" star and Hollywood Records recording artist Jordan Fisher, Disney's "Descendants" star and Hollywood Records/Republic Records recording artist Sofia Carson, Interscope Records recording artist and Radio Disney host Alex Aiono, and Disney Channel star Jenna Ortega ("Stuck in the Middle") are scheduled to host the popular performance-filled event, now in its fifth year.
Known as music's biggest event for families with performances and appearances by today's biggest artists and tomorrow's rising stars, the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards takes place Saturday, April 29, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The special two-hour telecast, "Disney Channel Presents the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards," will be available Sunday, April 30 (7-9 p.m. EDT), across multiple Disney-branded platforms. The RDMA includes fans from around the world voting to determine which artists will win the Radio Disney "ARDY" statuettes.
Last year, a record 238 million votes were tallied via five polling platforms (the Radio Disney App, Disney.com/RDMA, Twitter, Facebook and Google OneBox).
