The first ever Young Entertainer Awards will be making its way to Hollywood in two weeks and it definitely is an event that everyone is talking about! Only in its first year, the Young Entertainer Awards has a lot of spectacular excitement as it will be honoring all of the wonderful young entertainers and their sensational achievements. In addition to recognizing the successes of the amazing entertainers, the Young Entertainer Awards will also be celebrating the terrific families of all of the entertainers who have worked just as hard to support their talented kids’ dreams.

The Young Entertainer Awards, which will be taking place on March 20, 2016, has already brought out a lot of phenomenal announcements to everyone. The Young Entertainer Awards just recently spoke with Manny Streetz of 102.7 KIIS FM and Radio Disney about all of the upcoming excitement that awaits at the magnificent award show.

This past Friday, March 4, 2016, the Young Entertainer Awards just brought out the news that the one and only, extraordinary band Emblem3 will be presenting at the event.
