One Direction headline 2012's BBC Radio 1's Teen Awards live from Wembley Arena in front of an audience of thousands of teenagers. The superstar pop band give a live performance to kick off the awards which celebrate inspirational teenagers who have really made a difference, as well as stars from the worlds of entertainment, sport and music.
Presented by Radio 1's new breakfast show host Nick Grimshaw, the star-studded ceremony also features performances by Taylor Swift, Ne-yo, Fun, Conor Maynard and Little Mix. The action starts with red carpet arrivals followed by the ceremony and music performances, along with backstage news. Radio 1's Gemma Cairney presents alongside Grimshaw and reports backstage, speaking to the stars.
The centrepiece is the recognition of three very special teenagers, who each win a Teen Hero Award. Other awards to be presented include Best Young Sportsperson, Hottest Female/Male and Best TV Show.
