The show, which airs on April 26, will be hosted by Disney star and recording artist Zendaya.

Zendaya commented, “We’re going to have a great show….Plus, I’m nominated again for artist with the best style so I better wear a good outfit!”

“I’m most looking forward to watching the performances,” said presenter Garrett Clayton, star of megahit “Teen Beach Movie” and the “Teen Beach 2” sequel. “Last year Zendaya and Becky G were amazing.”

Clayton will be in attendance with his castmates Grace Phipps, Chrissie Fit and Jordan Fisher to represent the TV movie, which premieres this summer. As for the RDMA nominees, Fit and Fisher admit that they both voted for band R5, which is led by their “Teen Beach” costar Ross Lynch, who also toplines “Austin & Ally.”

Among the top nominees are Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, One Direction, Meghan Trainor and presenters Fifth Harmony, who also performed at last year’s show.
