Although the event was not televised, the awards show took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Pop stars Selena Gomez, Cher Lloyd, Coco Jones, and Mindless Behavior performed at the show. Last year’s first televised event featured performances by Fifth Harmony, Ariana Grande, Austin Mahone, and Becky G.

Duff also leads all other artists with fourteen Radio Disney awards. Some of Hilary Duff’s awards include Best New Artist, Best Actress Turned Singer, Most Stylish Singer, and Best Song. Duff’s career really took off when she starred in the Disney’s television series Lizzie McGuire from 2001 through 2004. She also appeared in a number of films including Agent Cody Banks and Cheaper by the Dozen in 2003, A Cinderella Story and Raise Your Voice in 2004, and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 in 2005.

As a musician, Duff has released four albums including Santa Claus Lane, Metamorphosis, Hilary Duff, and Dignity. Metamorphosis sold 203,000 copies in its first week, and went on to sell five million copies worldwide.

Her last album, Dignity, was released almost eight years ago. The album faired well on the charts, and it was eventually certified Gold. To date, Hilary Duff has sold over 15 million records worldwide.
