Laura Marano Opens Up About Hosting the ARDYs Summer Playlist Special (Exclusive)

Laura Marano is dishing on her hosting duties THIS Friday (July 10)!

The 24-year-old former Disney Channel star is returning to the network to host the Radio Disney Presents ARDYs Summer Playlist.

“I am so happy to be hosting the ARDYs! I have such wonderful memories of both my Disney Channel days and being a part of past RDMAs, so I was incredibly excited when I was asked to be the host this year,” Laura exclusively told JJJ. “I think this show is going to be very special this year, and our goal is to get all the families watching from their homes to dance and sing along with us throughout the show.”

Laura also revealed to us her favorite moment from past ARDYs/Radio Disney Music Awards shows.

“This is such a tough question because I truly have so many favorite moments (I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s true!). I think I would have to pick performing ‘Boombox’ live for the first time on television,” she said. “Not only did I get to perform with the lovely Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson, but I literally got to do the ‘Boombox’ performance of my dreams. I was so nervous before stepping on that stage, but then I ended up having the best time.”

Be sure to tune in to the Radio Disney Presents ARDYs Summer Playlist on FRIDAY (July 10) at 9pm ET/PT!

'Austin & Ally' Cast Have Zoom Reunion!!

'Austin & Ally' Cast Have Zoom Reunion!!

OMG! The Austin & Ally cast reunited this week!

Ross Lynch, Calum Worthy, Laura Marano, and Raini Rodriguez got together virtually for a new interview and to reminisce, moderated by E! Correspondent Lilliana Vasquez.

During the chat, the cast dished on the first time they met, remembering their auditions, fan interactions and more five years after the show wrapped.

“I think of the auditioning process first and foremost and those first table reads we did of the pilot and all that stuff,” Ross said about auditioning. “I remember getting a call from [Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert], who were the creators of the show, and they were like, ‘Hey man, you got the job. How are you feeling?’ I remember I just kept saying, ‘I’m so pumped!’ They kept asking, they’d be like, ‘Yeah, what else, man?’ and I’d be like, ‘I’m pumped!’ That’s all I had to say. But, yeah, good times, good times. That was the first table read I ever did, was Austin & Ally.”

Ross, I’m not sure how you didn’t know you got it, because at the end of the process there was one person for Austin, Ross, there was one person for Trish, Raini, and there were two girls for Ally. So, I actually had no idea if I got it or not,” Laura added.

Laura Marano is killing it on TikTok!

The 24-year-old singer and actress put some work into doing the “When You Wake Up” dance on the platform.

“I had so much fun with this dance, I did two versions (and then I started editing, and magically, all the fun disappeared)… thank you @natashapatnaik for creating the #whenyouwakeupdance !!! Please tell me which version you guys like (and lowkey please tell me it’s the second version, because it took me soooo long to edit and I need validation),” she wrote on Instagram.

In case you missed it, Dove Cameron also recently did the TikTok dance to her own song, “Remember Me”!

Version 2! This took hours to edit, but I thought the slight outfit changes would be so cool…spoiler, they‘re not. ##whenyouwakeupdance

Laura Marano Performs 'When You Wake Up' Acoustic With Her Boyfriend - Watch!

Laura Marano shared a new video with her boyfriend!

The couple performed an acoustic version of her latest single “When You Wake Up“.

“Thank you @mtv for letting me perform for you, and thank you life for giving me a boyfriend who is so lovely and can play guitar,” she captioned the video. Aww!

Laura recently opened up about the meaning of the song and how it sets the tone for her upcoming “You” era.

“So it was more meaning-wise, I think, about a professional relationship than a personal relationship,” she dished to Apple Music. “Cut to a few months after writing that song, I did end up going through a breakup, so maybe, who knows, that also subconsciously influenced me as well while writing it. But for me the song sonically and even lyrically is vulnerable and emotional. There’s an empowerment and strength there of being determined not to continue the relationship if there isn’t going to be change.”

“‘When You Wake Up’ feels very emotional, very moody and really is the start of a bunch of moody, new emotional songs coming from me. And so I knew how special that song was when I wrote it and I knew I wanted to release it,” Laura added. “I just wanted this to be at the right time. And I feel like weirdly couldn’t ask for a better time on moody and emotional moments of my life. You know what I mean? So it feels very much relatable in my emotional state currently, which I’m kind of weirdly thankful for because it feels like a really genuine, honest moment in my life now, even though I wrote it three years ago.”
