Radio Disney celebrates the holiday season in Celebration, Florida, with a special concert featuring JUSTIN BIEBER and RADIO DISNEY’S soon to be announced “N.B.T.” WINNER on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19 during Celebration Town Center’s “Now Snowing Nightly” event. The festivities, sponsored by Disney Gift Card, kick off at 6:00 p.m. with a performance by the winner of Radio Disney’s “N.B.T.” (Next Big Thing), whose name will be announced on Friday, December 11 (6:00 p.m., ET/3:00 p.m., PT) after listeners nationwide cast their votes.
Following the first performance of the night, Radio Disney AM 990’s Road Crew will keep the fun going with games, music and prizes, including a $100 Disney Gift Card. Bieber will take the stage after the 8:00 p.m. snow fall for a performance that is free and open to the public.
To connect fans with the Island Def Jam star and teen heartthrob, Radio Disney stations across the country offered their listeners the chance to win a trip to Celebration to enjoy performances by Bieber and the “N.B.T.” winner front row. The Grand Prize winner of the network promotion will also get to meet Bieber and ride an attraction with him at Walt Disney World Resort. Local station winners will also meet Bieber, the “N.B.T.” artists, and win tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort.
Two of Bieber’s hit singles, “One Time” and “One Less Lonely Girl,” are featured on Radio Disney’s Top 30 Countdown, and these, as well as singles “Favorite Girl” and “Love Me” from his album “My World” (released November 17), are currently featured in the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Bieber is the first solo artist ever to have four songs from a debut album in the Top 40 prior to the release of the album.
“Next Big Thing” (“N.B.T.”) is a daily multi-platform programming feature that puts the spotlight on young recording artists and provides them with national broadcast and online exposure. Radio Disney introduced five unsigned “N.B.T.” artists, age 12-17, and invited listeners to look, listen and vote for their favorite. The winner will be featured on the upcoming Walt Disney Records’ Radio Disney Jams 12 CD and will also open for Bieber as well as Hollywood Records’ Allstar Weekend on December 14 in Los Angeles, California.
