6 Reasons We’re Excited for the 2017 iHeart Radio MMVAs

The 2017 iHeart Radio MMVAs are quickly approaching, and we seriously cannot wait for the festivities to begin. From the star-studded guest list to the extravagant red carpet arrivals, here are 6 reasons why we’re excited for this year’s MMVAs :

1. It’s all about the fans.

One thing that is always clear about the MMVAs is that it’s always about the fans. Wristbands to attend the show are free, and if you line up early enough you can even snag a spot on the red carpet! The unique thing about getting a red carpet spot is that you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of your favourite celebrities. We even had the chance to experience this first hand at the 2016 MMVAs because I’m Virgin Mobile Member!

2. The Red Carpet arrivals.

The MMVAs are notorious for their insane red carpet arrivals. In the past, Katy Perry has showed up in an ice cream truck, Marianas Trench has rolled down the carpet in a zorb, and one year Billy Talent even showed up riding an army tank!  If you’re Virgin Mobile Member you could enter to win a VIP package to the MMVAs where you get to walk the red carpet and potentially see this all yourself. With celebs such as Hedley, Niall Horan, and Lilly Singh attending this year, we absolutely cannot wait to see how they decide to make their entrance and you can count on us being there with our Virgin Mobile Member perks.

3. Alessia Cara & Joe Jonas are hosting

Alessia Cara blew us away with her beautiful performance at the 2016 MMVAs, and this year she is back to host it with Joe Jonas! This will be Joe’s second time hosting (the first was back in 2009 with the Jonas Brothers) and if this time around is anything like the first, we know we’ll be in for an insane party when he teams up with Alessia.

4. Lorde is performing

It’s been quite a while since the last time Lorde was in Toronto, and we can’t wait to see her take the stage at this year’s MMVAs.

5. The star-studded list of presenters

Shay Mitchell, Dove Cameron, Lights, and Darren Criss are just some of the big names who will be presenting the awards this year.

6. Bonus: The Virgin Mobile Canada Member experience!

 We’re excited for the pre and after party and getting to watch the show from a Members box. Be sure to turn notifications on and follow LIL’s social to see it all go down on June 18th! 

The iHeart Radio MMVAs takes place on Sunday June 18th at 9pm EST, with red carpet festivities kicking off at 8pm EST. Be sure to set your PVRs or head downtown to witness the event for yourself as you definitely won’t want to miss it.
