BURBANK, Calif. -- October 20, 2004 -- On Monday, October 25, music superstars Destiny's Child, Tim McGraw, Ashlee Simpson, Alanis Morisette, Train and 3 Doors Down will join the biggest names in music to celebrate their successes at the 2004 Radio Music Awards (RMAs) live from the Aladdin Casino Resort, the future home of Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hosted by Carson Daly and Molly Sims, the 2004 Radio Music Awards will open with a performance of "Lose My Breathe" by the reunited group Destiny's Child -- Beyonc? Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Joining Destiny's Child in special performances for the RMAs will be Tim McGraw, Train, Chingy, Ashlee Simpson, Alanis Morisette, Gretchen Wilson with Big and Rich and, as previously announced, Elton John.
Other confirmed talent include Ciara, Carmen Electra, Ty Murray, Mark McGrath, Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne and many more.
In their first telecast on NBC last October, "The 2003 Radio Music Awards" scored a 4.5 rating, 11 share among adults 18-49 and averaged 9.6 million viewers overall, to jump 80 percent above the event's previous highest 18-49 result (2.5/8 on ABC Friday, Oct. 26, 2001) and 4.0 million persons above the previous high in total viewers.
