8:00pm – Thursday, November 3 on FOUR
The 2011 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards will be held at Auckland’s Vector Arena Thursday, November 3 rd and screen on FOUR the same night. Hosted by FOUR’s Shannon Ryan and WANNA-BEn’s Ben Boyce, the awards will include performances from some of New Zealand’s biggest artists – plus a heap of surprises and special guests. “I’m really looking forward of hosting the Vodafone Music Awards,” says Boyce. “I’m also looking forward to presenting with Shannon – not only is she great to work with but she has done the show before so if we make any mistakes it will be more her fault than mine.” When asked how he got the prestigious hosting gig, Boyce says: “I think I got the job because my name was Ben and they’d already done a press release saying ‘Shannon and Ben’ will be hosting again – then [last year's host] Ben Hurley couldn’t do it again and they tried Ben Lummis – finally ending up with me!” As well as the actual awards themselves, the night’s backstage goings on will also be covered, with FOUR’s Drew Neemia and Sharyn Wakefield being front and centre with all the happenings LIVE from the red carpet from 8pm.
Make sure not to miss all this when 2011 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards screen on Thursday, November 3 rd from 8pm on FOUR.
