The 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards nominees have been announced and voting is now open for all categories. Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes, BTS, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Meghan Trainor, Bruno Mars and Maroon 5 are leading this year’s list of RDMA contenders. Winners will be announced Friday, June 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif. with a special telecast of the ceremony airing on Saturday, June 23 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on the Disney Channel.

Fans can cast votes for their favorite artists through June 3 across six voting platforms:, the Radio Disney app, the DisneyNOW app, Google Search Voting, and Radio Disney’s Facebook page and @radiodisney onTwitter.

Top artists will be vying for a coveted ARDY Award in 15 different categories including “The One – Best Artist,” “The Bestest – Song of the Year,” “The Buzz- Breakout Artist of the Year” and the fan-focused “#SquadGoals – Fiercest Fans” category and more. A fun new category “Doubletap – Favorite Social Music Artist” is being added this year which recognizes talented music artists from various social media platforms. In the “XOXO – Best Crush Song” category, Ed Sheeran’s chart-topping ballad “Perfect” is competing with “I Like Me Better" by Lauv, Sofia Carson’s “Ins and Outs,” “Legends” by Kelsea Ballerini and “Why” by Sabrina Carpenter.

Last year, over 283 million votes were cast and Justin Bieber, Alessia Cara, Niall Horan and Ariana Grande were among the 2017 RDMA winners. “America’s Got Talent” season 11 winner Grace VanderWaal won Best New Artist and Bruno Mars’ upbeat song “24K Magic” won Best Song That Makes You Smile.
