The Awards bring together all Global’s radio stations: Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Gold and LBC. The categories reflect the music, programmes, podcasts and news aired on Global’s radio stations and the Global Player app.
The public and a panel of industry experts have voted for their winners in a host of popular categories across a wide range of genres. The categories also include an award for Best Podcast for the very first time. Shortlisted artists include: Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Lizzo, Stereophonics, Stormzy, Aitch, Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Lewis Capaldi, and Sam Smith.
Myleene Klass said: “I am over the moon to be hosting The Global Awards for another year. It’s so rare to have an awards ceremony these days which celebrates all genres of music the way The Global Awards do. There’s genuinely something for everyone, from pop through to classical, just like all the stations Global represents. It’s going to be stellar.”
Speaking about hosting The Global Awards with Very.co.uk for the first time, Smooth’s Kate Garraway, said: “Following the massive success of The Global Awards over the past two years, it is such an honour for me to join the fabulous Myleene Klass and Roman Kemp to co-present this year’s ceremony. What makes The Global Awards so unique is that we’re celebrating the stars of music, news and entertainment across the night – and with performances from artists such as Ellie Goulding, Stereophonics, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, it promises to be a very special evening!”
Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp said: “The Global Awards with Very.co.uk is such a special evening and I’m honoured to be joining Kate and Myleene to host this incredible show. I can’t think of any other awards ceremony that celebrates such an incredible breadth of talent across so many genres – it always makes for some pretty amazing moments on the night and I can’t wait.”
