The pop sensation is expected to scoop several awards at the ceremony...

Britney Spears is confirmed as the headlining act at this year’s SMASH HITS’ POLL WINNERS’ PARTY, where she seems certain to scoop a string of awards.

Ten other acts have been confirmed so far, including Westlife and Five, Ronan Keating, Sonique and Texas, for the show, which takes place on 10 December at London Arena.

Rich from Five‘s opinion on the event is: “We’ve done the Poll Winners’ Party several times before and it’s always a great day. We’re all looking forward to seeing the other bands and, of course, performing ourselves. I am sure this year will be the best yet.”

Five were actually launched on the tour that precedes the Smash Hits’ Poll Winners Party every year, during which time audience members voted them higher than the likes of 98 Degrees. Since the first Party in 1988 – which starred the likes of Brother Beyond – the annual Awards show has become the pivot of many pop fans’ diaries.
