The Social Star Awards take place in the MasterCard® Theatres at Marina Bay Sands where guests including musicians, footballers, actors, and ‘The Connected” – local celebrities and socialites – will assemble for a one-off night of breathtaking entertainment. The huge production will feature a bespoke set made entirely from high definition LED screens allowing the venue to become an interactive spectacle as awards are presented on the stage, and in social media throughout the course of the night, as the awards are streamed on YouTube.

On the announcement of her role as Host of the Social Star Awards, Jessica Alba said; “I’m thrilled to be co-hosting the first-ever Social Star Awards and look forward to seeing everyone in Singapore to celebrate these social media superstars.”

Paul Morrison and Drew Thomson, Joint CEOs of Starcount said; “To have Jessica Alba presenting the Social Star Awards is an honour which reflects the stature of our inaugural event and ensures that it will truly be a Hollywood A-list experience. All eyes will be on Singapore for this premiere of The Social Star Awards, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Jessica to curate an evening of global acceptances and incredible social moments which will see the Social Star Awards take its place at the top table of global Awards events.”
