The Teen Awards in numbers

Radio 1's Teen Awards will take place on Sunday 22nd October at Wembley Arena. Whether you're at the event itself, or listening and watching at home, there's a LOT to get excited about.

To help get you ready, we thought we'd round up the very best of the Teen Awards - in numbers.

5 incredible acts

There's a seriously big treat in store at the Teen Awards 2017, where five amazing acts will appear on stage. Camila Cabello, Rita Ora, Liam Payne, The Vamps and Dua Lipa will all be performing.

2017 marks the third time that The Vamps have played these awards. They just can't get enough, and frankly we don't blame them. Over the years, the awards have seen acts like Little Mix, One Direction and Demi Lovato step out to whip up the crowds.

While live performances by incredible artists are a huge part of what makes the Teen Awards special, the event is about so much more than music.

The awards celebrate all kinds of things that teenagers feel passionate about, from gaming and vlogging to sport and film.

Phew! But most important of all are the Teen Hero awards...
