Bieber turns up at BBC Radio 1 teen event
Justin Bieber made a surprise performance at the Teen Heroes awards, organised by BBC Radio 1.
The music event was hosted by Nick Grimshaw and included co-hosts Demi Lovato, Rita Ora, The Vamps and Troye Sivan. Radio 1 applauded three Teen Heroes, together with celebrities from the online, music and entertainment world.
There was an audience of 10,000 14-17 year olds at the SSE Wembley Arena, watching Olly Murs, vlogger Jim Chapman, Keith Lemon and Idris Elba who all presented awards.
The three Teen Heroes are 14 year-old Alice, a carer from Gloucestershire, 14 year-old Rosie, a fundraiser with a highly malignant primary brain tumour from Coventry; and 16 year-old Aaren from Bristol, who was born with gender dysphoria – each chosen for their incredible courage and exceptional achievements.
When taking to the stage to collect an award on behalf of One Direction, Radio 1’s Greg James announced that the band will be on Radio 1 this Thursday (12 November) to perform a very special Live Lounge.
