Channel 4 has today announced the first acts that will be playing at the inaugural T4 winter music event T4’s Stars of 2009 on Sunday 29th November at Earls Court, London for 19,000 lucky music fans.
Topping off a fantastic 2009, JLS are sure to get the crowd moving as they take to the London stage to wow their ever-devoted fans. They will be joined by long-time T4 favourites Sugababes, who promise a dazzling performance as they join the star-studded event.
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke will be showing why she was a worthy winner as she showcases the powerful voice that set her on the road to stardom. Hit music maker Calvin Harris will get the dance floor pumping with his mix of anthems while chart-topping act La Roux also joins the line-up to bring her electro-synth pop to the stage.
The event will be presented by Steve Jones, Miquita Oliver and Rick Edwards. Alongside the top music acts, ticket holders will be treated to guest appearances from a number of special celebrity guests from top Channel 4 and T4 programmes. Many more acts will be announced in the coming weeks. There will also be a Celebrity Disco and Signing Area where fans can get up close and personal with their idols, plus a Catwalk area featuring fashion themed live entertainment.
The event will also feature the announcement of the winner of the Rimmel London Presents The World’s Greatest Popstars series. The 4music/T4 series sees ten of the world’s best living pop acts battling it out for the title of “Greatest Popstar” as voted by the British public through www.4music.com. Will Britney Spears pip Madonna to the post? Or will Robbie Williams be victorious? The hotly anticipated announcement will be made exclusively at the Stars of 2009 event.
