Sponsored by Very.co.uk, the group’s Awards return for a second year on March 7. London’s Eventim Apollo will play host to performances from Mark Ronson, Little Mix, Lang Lang, Blossoms, Mabel and Anne-Marie.
Heart FM’s Humes, Capital DJ Kemp and Classic FM/Smooth presenter Klass will oversee proceedings, and winners will reflect content from across all Global stations, including Radio X, Capital Xtra, Gold and LBC.
Shortlisted artists include Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, Arctic Monkeys, Little Mix, Post Malone, Anne-Marie, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Ava Max, Liam Payne and Take That. The full shortlists can be viewed here.
Winners are decided by public vote and a panel of industry experts.
I don’t know any other awards show where you’d get to see Lang Lang and Little Mix on the same stage
Capital Breakfast’s Kemp said: “It’s an honour to return to host such an incredible event. The calibre of talent that Global brings together under one roof is phenomenal, with performances from some of the world’s biggest artists. It promises to be an amazing night and I can’t wait.”
Humes commented: “After the huge success of last year’s Global Awards, I’m flattered to be asked back to co-present alongside the wonderful Myleene and Roman. It’s going to be a very special evening, celebrating the stars of music, news and entertainment. Last year we saw Little Mix score the hat-trick at our first ever ceremony and I can’t wait to see who’ll take the charge this year.”
Klass added: “I am thrilled to be back hosting The Global Awards again on behalf of Classic FM and Smooth. I don’t know any other awards show where you’d get the chance to see the world’s greatest pianist Lang Lang and our very own Little Mix perform on the same stage. I genuinely cannot wait.”
Tickets for the show are available now priced at £49.99.
