We join her legion of fans in welcoming her back to the RDMA stage.”
Zendaya added, “We’re going to have a great show… a lot of fun and get to watch amazing performances, so I’m very, very excited. Plus, I’m nominated again for artist with the best style (You’re So Fancy! – Artist With The Best Style), so I better wear a good outfit!”
