As well as celebrating the very best in music, sport, entertainment and the internet the event will also recognise the achievements of three very special Teen Heroes.

The Editor of BBC Radio 1, Jocelin Stainer, said the awards were "really special" because of the involvement of the stations listeners:

BBC Radio 1's Teen Awards are now firmly established as a key event in the music and entertainment calendar. The awards are for Radio 1 audiences and voted for by them which make them really special.
