The 2017 Teen Choice Awards will kick off on Sunday with the first-ever Teen Fest, along with a special red carpet pre-show. Watch the live stream below!
The Teen Choice Awards is typically a nighttime-only event that airs live on FOX. But this year, the festivities are starting in the afternoon with a full-on music festival. The concert, which will stream on YouTube, will be hosted by Jake Paul. The YouTube favorite will also perform with his group, Team 10.
Hey Violet, Bea Miller, Sleeping With Sirens, New Hope Club and Echosmith are among the other acts slated to take the stage. Perhaps most notably, PRETTYMUCH is also on the bill. The boy band was put together by music mogul Simon Cowell, who famously formed One Direction through “The X Factor UK.” Though their performance isn’t guaranteed to air on television during the actual Teen Choice broadcast, this digital-focused gig is one of the group’s biggest to date.
And FOX has high hopes that Teen Fest will become a signature companion event to the awards show. Rob Wade, the network’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, said in a statement “Teen Choice 2017 is the premier awards show for teens and about teens, and our partnership with YouTube expands this special event into the audience’s digital lives as never before. Teen Fest 2017 will get fans around the world excited for the show and elevate the experience for viewers across every platform.”
But that’s not all. In addition to the music festival, YouTube will also exclusively stream live from the Teen Choice Awards red carpet using its virtual reality technology. “Technologies like VR180 will give YouTube fans around the world an opportunity to experience the red carpet as if they were there,” said Tara Walpert Levy, the vice president of agency and media sales for Google and YouTube. The online-only feed will give fans at home a glimpse at the star-studded arrivals, along with on-the-spot interviews and commentary.
