Robyn to Headline Live Musical Performances on Logo's Fourth Annual 'NewNowNext Awards' 2011

Oh Land and Wynter Gordon Round Out Live Musical Acts

"NewNowNext Awards" 2011 Winners Revealed on Telecast Premiering Monday, April 11th at 10/9C on Logo

NEW YORK, March 7, 2011 -- Logo, the entertainment network for gays, lesbians and their families and friends announced today that international pop sensation, Robyn, will headline the "NewNowNext Awards" 2011 live musical performances. Joining Robyn will be electro-pop act Oh Land and dance-music diva Wynter Gordon. The "NewNowNext Awards" musical acts showcase on-the-brink performers who will undoubtedly break big in the upcoming months. Most notably, Lady Gaga made her first televised appearance on the "NewNowNext Awards" before she went on to claim her stake as pop royalty. The "NewNowNext Awards" gathers icons and stars on the rise to crown the next "big things" in TV, music, film, print and new media long before they hit the mainstream. Catch Robyn, Oh Land and Wynter Gordon perform on the "NewNowNext Awards" 2011 premiering Monday, April 11th at 10/9C on Logo.

Fresh off her U.S. and European tour and a sold-out performance at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Swedish recording artist, singer and songwriter Robyn will deliver pop stardom at this year's awards. Robyn gained popularity in the late 1990s for her worldwide dance-pop hit "Do You Know (What It Takes)" from her debut album Robyn Is Here (1997). The popularity of her number one hit-single "With Every Heartbeat," and subsequent album release Robyn (2005), brought her mainstream success worldwide. In January 2009, Robyn won a Swedish Grammis award for "Best Live Act 2008."

Robyn recently released Body Talk Pt. 1, the first installment of her ambitious three-part album release in 2010. Lead single "Dancing On My Own," the heartbreaking heir to "With Every Heartbeat," went top ten in the U.K. accompanied by mass critical praise for the album. "Dancing on My Own" garnered Robyn a 53rd GRAMMY� award nomination for "Best Dance Recording." The follow-up album, Body Talk Pt. 2, released on September 6 debuting at number one on the Swedish charts and the final album of the trilogy, Body Talk, released on November 22, 2010 to critical praise from the press including People, US Weekly, Rolling Stone, Spin and Pitchfork.

Oh Land emerged as one of the most talked about new artists for 2011, landing on many critics' must-listen lists in advance of her self-titled debut album. The 11 song album that will be released by Epic Records on March 15th is a mix of lavish loops and layered vocals that pound through on songs like the album's first single "Sun of a Gun." Dan Carey (The Kills, Franz Ferdinand, Hot Chip) and Dave McCracken (Depeche Mode, Beyonce, AFI) co-created this album with Oh Land full of rich harmonies, beautiful symphonic arrangements to accompany her enchanting voice. Oh Land made her U.S. television debut on "Late Show with David Letterman" and will perform on "Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel," "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and "Last Call with Carson Daly." Oh Land is currently touring with OMD for her first-ever North American tour and will appear at SXSW with over 10 shows planned.

Singer/songwriter Wynter Gordon gives dancefloor divas and music heads alike a new reason to "believe" with her ethereal voice and playful personality. The single "Dirty Talk" from her forthcoming debut album, With the Music I Die, recently topped Billboard's "Dance Club Play Songs" chart at number one, while her Freemasons-produced "Believer" climbs steadily on the U.K. charts. For the past two years, Wynter has traveled the globe collaborating with some of the biggest names in electronic music including David Guetta and Rhythm Masters. She recently performed at the Winter Music Conference and received two "International Dance Music Awards" nominations.

This year's NewNowNext winners will be revealed Monday, April 11th at 10/9C, on Logo's "NewNowNext Awards" 2011 show. The 90-minute special will be taped in front of a live audience with today's hottest emerging and seasoned artists at the legendary Avalon in Hollywood, CA on April 7th. Presenters and special guests will be announced as they are confirmed.

Through its past discoveries, the "NewNowNext Awards" has proven its one step ahead of the hype by calling out some of today's hottest pop culture phenomenon long before they were on the mainstream radar. Highlights include Lady Gaga's first ever televised performance with a sizzling rendition of "Just Dance." Hit drama series "True Blood" received the "Best Show You're Not Watching" award months before its Emmy� nominations. Wendy Williams won "Best New Indulgence" before her daytime talk show "The Wendy Williams Show" went national.

The "NewNowNext Awards" builds on Logo's acclaimed NewNowNext franchise, which includes LogoTV.com's pop culture blog NewNowNext.com and two on-air music shows: "NewNowNext PopLab," the home for party music in all its forms, and "NewNowNext Music," the ultimate music video destination of today's hottest artists and emerging musicians.

"NewNowNext Awards" is Executive Produced by Christopher Willey and Dave Mace for Logo. Michael Dempsey of Dempsey Productions serves as Executive Producer and Director.
