He says he can’t wait to come back again.

“It’s always a great day with a brilliant line-up. I’m looking forward to performing my new songs and returning to the stage – but as a solo artist this time.”

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa enjoyed co-hosting in 2016 so much that she’s coming back for more.

“I’m thrilled to be invited back to perform this year. Can’t wait to see you there.”

Teen Awards veterans, The Vamps, will be playing for a third time and they say this will be their loudest yet.

“The Teen Awards is always a great time to celebrate incredible young individuals and we are extremely proud to be a part of such an important celebration.”
