Following the success of its previous two endeavours, the BBC have confirmed the return of their Music Awards for the third year running.

Set to hit London’s ExCel Centre on 12th December, the show, hosted by Fearne Cotton and Claudia Winkleman, will see a summary of the past 12 months of music, alongside performances from the likes of Emeli Sande, The 1975, Kaiser Chiefs, Zara Larsson and more. Further acts are also set to be announced over the coming weeks too.

This year’s ceremony will also see the introduction of two new awards – the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Performance of the Year gong (voted for by the Radio 1 Playlist Committee), and the BBC Radio 2 Album of the Year award, also voted for by the station’s playlist committee.

Tickets are now on sale, and are priced from £42 to £62 (plus booking fee). Visit for full details.
