The main entrance to the Pre Show

The entrance to the #RDMA2014 Pre Show complete with Red Carpet, Party Bus, JumboTrons and Stage at Nokia Theater L.A. Live!

Last Saturday’s Disney’s 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE were in a word, FANTASTIC!  For Hollywood Mom Blog it started with this:

Where it all began – Thanks to Radio Disney and Rolf Bleu for a wonderful afternoon!

And by “this” I refer to the most highly coveted tickets. EVER. Honestly!  As most Hollywood Moms can attest, seats to the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards were hotter and harder to come by than a Willy Wonka golden ticket was for Violet Beauregard.  Thank you to Radio Disney for including Hollywood Mom Blog in the festivities. I literally hummed this tune when I finally got those bad boys in my hand, which by the way, was all of about 5 seconds before I walked through the guarded doors of the Nokia Theatre. Apparently, I like to live dangerously.


The Pre Show, which was very well organized, was open to the public – Awesome! The audience, made up of mostly tweens and teens, went absolutely nuts when Disney Stars like Olivia Holt took the stage.


We saw so many HMB friends like child actors Marlowe Peyton, Merit Leighton, Jordan Bobbitt, Nikki Hahn, Brianna Curiel, Bailey Stillwell – the list goes on and on!  Not to mention some of our favorite child performers on stage like Rowan Blanchard, Auggie Maturo, Zendaya, Olivia Holt and  Austin Mahone!  If you were there too –  please let us know in the comment section!
