JASON DERULO AND CHARLI XCX TO ANNOUNCE 
2014 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS® NOMINEES LIVE ON 
“GOOD MORNING AMERICA” ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 13ABC AND DICK CLARK PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCE DATE FOR
THE 2014 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS

 

The 2014 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd (8:00-11:00 pm ET/PT) on ABC. New Artist of the Year Presented by Kohl’s, Artist of the Year, and “Single of the Year.”

Five years since making his debut in pop music, Jason Derulo has sold more than 45 million records worldwide and amassed more than 1.3 billion views on his YouTube channel.  His last song, “Wiggle” featuring Snoop Dogg is his eighth song to reach the Top 10 on the Top 40 format and his ninth platinum-selling single.  The video for the track has amassed over 300 million views. Derulo’s ubiquitous hit “Talk Dirty” featuring 2 Chainz is his most successful track to date, having sold more than six million copies worldwide. The Miami-native’s career started when he was 16 years old and began writing songs for artists including Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy, Sean Kingston, Cassie and Danity Kane.  Derulo’s current hit “Trumpets” will be the fifth single from his most recent album, Talk Dirty, to go platinum- an accomplishment reached by only eight other artists since 2007 including Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.

London-based singer and songwriter Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, the 22 year-old, Charlotte Aitchison, co-wrote the #1 smash single, “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea, and penned last year’s double platinum summer it-song, “I Love It” recorded by Icona Pop, which she is featured on. Most recently, Charli XCX released the platinum selling “Boom Clap” single from the ‘The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture’ soundtrack, landing the #1 spot on Top 40 radio along, with a brand new song, “Break The Rules” from her forthcoming sophomore studio album, “Sucker” arriving December 16th via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.

The “2014 American Music Awards” is produced by dick clark productions. Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan are Executive Producers. Larry Klein, Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco are Producers.

Last year, ABC’s broadcast of the “2013 American Music Awards” made it the dominant No. 1 non-sports net from 8:00-11:00 p.m. in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

  • Surging by over 30% year to year in Total Viewers (+36%) and Adults 18-49 (+32%), the “American Music Awards” earned 4-year highs in viewers and young adults (since 2009), representing the show’s 2nd-biggest audience in 11 years (since 2002).

  • Despite the substantial competition, the “2013 American Music Awards” scored ABC’s highest entertainment numbers in the 3-hour time period in 9 months with viewers and young adults – since the “Academy Awards” on 2/24/13.

REHAB, LAS VEGAS’ ORIGINAL DAYCLUB, CONCLUDES MEMORABLE 10TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON WITH AWARD-WINNING ARTIST SEAN KINGSTON, OCT. 13

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas’ tropical oasis hosted extraordinary parties and helped raise money for local nonprofits this summer

 

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas completed another successful summer with REHAB’s ultimate end-of-the-season bash hosted by international superstar Sean Kingston on Sunday, Oct. 13. The celebration signified the end of a decade of decadence at Las Vegas’ original dayclub as well as the end of the property’s thriving pool season, filled with unforgettable performances, celebrity guests and more.

On Sunday, the party kicked off at REHAB when Kingston took over the poolside stage. Partygoers went wild during the reggae-infused rapper’s crowd-pleasing show, singing and dancing to his popular hits “Letting Go (Dutty Love),” “Fire Burning,” “Beat It” and more. Kingston’s performance marked the official end of the dayclub’s explosive 10th anniversary season.

Since opening in 2004, REHAB has checked in more than 725,000 patrons, sold more than 2 million beers and cocktails, and 45,000 bottles of champagne, vodka, etc. The dayclub was featured on “21 Sexiest Beach Bars” calling it “the must-see place on a Sunday afternoon” as well as deemed as the “best known, biggest and craziest pool party” by the Los Angeles Times. This summer, REHAB held performances by Tommy Lee with DJ Aero, French electronic music duo Justice, reggae group Sublime with Rome, rock band 311, British DJ Fatboy Slim, entertainment mogul Diddy, DJ Grandmaster Flash, multi-platinum-selling artist Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion, music luminary Nelly, the “King of R&B” R. Kelly, and many more. Among the many celebrities spotted partying at the lavish pool scene were Young Money Entertainment Founder Lil Wayne, rapper Tyga, recording artist Pusha T and professional boxer Adrien Broner.

In addition, Hard Rock Hotel also held its first-ever REHAB Bikini Invitational 2013 this summer. The five-week contest consisted of multiple rounds of the nation’s hottest girls competing to be chosen for REHAB’s Bikini Team 2014. Throughout the invitational, celebrities Joanna Krupa of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Miami” and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWoww” assisted with hosting duties while hanging out poolside, showing off their own bikini-clad bods.

Finally, the end of the pool season also signifies the end of the resort’s inaugural Pay It Forward Fridays. Pay It Forward Fridays was an initiative that invited locals and nonprofit advocates to relax at the property’s poolside tropical oasis while supporting a good cause. From Friday, May 31 to Friday, Aug. 30, designated charities sold cabanas priced at $100 while receiving 100 percent of the proceeds.

Benefitting nonprofits included Stomach Cancer Relief Network Inc.; Aid For AIDS of Nevada (AFAN); Lied Discovery Children’s Museum’s Links For Life Foundation; Noah’s Animal House; Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas; Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation; Girls on the Run of Las Vegas; Golden Rainbow; Families for Effective Autism Treatment; Communities In Schools Nevada; American Red Cross; Injured Police Officers Fund; HELP of Southern Nevada; and Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
