The 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards was filmed on Saturday night and Nick Jonas received the recognition he deserved. The singer was honored with the “Hero Award” at the event in front of peers like Hailee Steinfeld, Camila Cabello and Alessia Cara.
The night featured many winners who most likely wouldn’t have beat out their competitors at more legitimate award ceremonies, like Niall Horan who won the “He’s the One Award,” beating Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. “America’s Got Talent” winner Grace Vanderwaal also took home an award for “Best New Artist” over Noah Cyrus and Julia Michaels, two singers you can actually hear on the radio.

Kelsea and co-host Sofia Carson will be joined by Hailee for a special tribute to Britney Spears, who’s receiving the first-ever “Icon Award” from the show. Every song in a special medley-style tribute to Britney was picked by fans.
Tune in to see the tribute on Sunday, April 30, at 7PM EST.

The nominations for the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards are out and Justin Bieber leads by a hair. The “Sorry” singer is up for six awards and is closely followed by his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, and Meghan Trainor, both of whom have five nominations. While the RDMAs aren’t as official as, let’s say, the GRAMMYs, the nominations seem more indicative of fan and radio reception of songs and artists that wouldn’t elsewhere be recognized. The “Best Collaboration” category offers a brightly competitive and inclusive list featuring: Ariana Grande and John Legend, Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez, Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello, Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift.
Meanwhile, Nick Jonas finally has a chance to be recognized for his complicated last year as a “Best Male Artist” nominee. Better than one chance is two and Nick’s “Bacon” is up for “Best Song To Lip Sync To.” He is, however, in direct competition with his brother for that award as DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean” is also nominated.
Noah Cyrus even got a couple nods for her debut single, “Make Me (Cry).” The track is nominated for “Best Breakup Song” and it also secured Noah a place at the table for “Best New Artist.”
The 2017 RDMAs will be held April 29 with the ceremony airing one day later at 7 pm ET on the Disney Channel. Voting is now open on the award show’s website.
