Cody Simpson heading to New.Music.Live., Dec. 12

After causing absolute pandemonium on the 2011 MMVAs red carpet earlier this year, teen heartthrob Cody Simpson returns to MuchMusic HQ for a special edition of NEW.MUSIC.LIVE., on Monday, Dec. 12 at 5 p.m. ET.

The 14-year-old Australian pop sensation chats with N.M.L. hosts Liz Trinnear and Jesse Giddings about his whirlwind year, his latest EP Coast To Coast, and what fans can expect next from the rising star. 

Throughout the hour, Simpson also performs songs from his EPs Coast To Coast and 4 U including “On My Mind” and smash hit “iYiYi”, and then strips it down (and makes the ladies swoon) with acoustic versions of his red-hot singles “Not Just You” and “Angel” for his first-ever television performance in Canada.

With over 1.5 million Twitter followers, over 1.8 million Facebook likes and over 100 million YouTube views, Australia-born singer Cody Simpson is quickly shaping up as a true pop phenomenon. The release of his hugely anticipated new album Coast To Coast recently debuted TOP 15 on the Billboard 200 and features the Top 40 smash, “On My Mind,” as well as the classic heartbreak ballad, “Not Just You.” Simpson made the journey to LA and quickly won over the U.S fans with a series of live performances, including 2010’s Campified tour of over 30 different summer camps across the country.

A truly charming and charismatic live performer, Simpson continued to tour nearly non-stop, including a sold out co-headline tour with Greyson Chance, shows alongside Miranda Cosgrove, and appearances at such events as the Arthur Ashe Kids Day festivities at the 2011 U.S. Open.
