'It's that time of year again!'

'It's that time of year again!'

Fearne and Claudia Winkleman will take to the stage to bring you one extraordinary night of music for the return of the BBC Music Awards, taking place on Monday 12 December in London.

'It’s that time of year again!' says Fearne. 'I’ve had such a fantastic time presenting the show for the past two years, and as 2016 has been another bumper year for music, I can’t wait for this year’s show with Claudia, my new presenting partner in crime. Get ready UK!'

The musical extravaganza will tell the story of the past twelve months in music, with live performances from some of 2016’s best-loved artists and featuring some of the year’s best-selling songs.

This year’s evening of entertainment will feature stunning live performances from a glittering array of the biggest names in music – including multi-platinum record selling and Grammy Award-winning star Michael Bublé who this year released his self-produced ninth album Nobody But Me.

Multi-award winning indie rock band Kaiser Chiefs also perform. The group have achieved platinum record sales, Top Ten singles including number one hit Ruby and in 2016 released their sixth studio album Stay Together.

Joining them will be Lukas Graham whose hit single 7 Years has catapulted the Danish ghetto pop band to world-wide fame this year and global pop sensation Zara Larsson who enjoyed worldwide success in 2016 with hit singles Lush Life, Ain't My Fault, Tinie Tempah duet Girls Like and David Guetta duet This One's for You which saw her perform at the UEFA Euro 2016 opening and closing ceremonies.

Other performers include the multi-platinum award winning singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé who returned to the charts this year with hit single Hurts from her upcoming hotly anticipated second album Long Live The Angels; and Mercury Prize nominees The 1975 whose critically acclaimed I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It reached number one in the UK and US album charts this year.

The show is live on BBC One and bbc.co.uk/music from 8.30-10pm with additional programming on Radio 1 and Radio 2. There will also be coverage of the Red Carpet arrivals plus exclusive interviews. And The One Show will also be live from the event, from 7-7.30pm, meeting the stars and building excitement ahead of the Awards.
